This is what the doohickey spring looks like when the owner doesn’t adjust the balancer chain tension and the spring gets sucked through the balancer chain.

    I purchased the Cyclepedia.com Kawasaki KLR 650 online manual to solve a carb problem and take care of some routine maintenance. I like the program. – J. Negrych

    I just purchased a lifetime membership for the Kawasaki KLR650 manual and so far I think it is great. I am a first-time motorcycle owner and know very very little about mechanics and routine maintenance. So I’m learning. I performed my first oil and filter change on my bike yesterday and was pleased with this accomplishment. Your online manual is a great product and I look forward to using it more in the future. – A. Bentley

    Hey Cyclepedia! I really appreciate the follow up email I received today. I was trying to do some maintenance and was stumped about something. In my opinion, outstanding customer service is, relatively speaking, kinda rare. So, thanks! I’m so glad I subscribed to your online manual for my 2007 Kawasaki KLR650 – it’s definitely been worth the money I paid & already I’m getting to know my bike better. Thanks again! Peace. Tim

    Canada’s Online Motorcycle Magazine CMG Reviews the KLR manual…

    “The content is much the same as a shop manual, only the well-shot pictures are bigger and in full color (and so are the PDF format wiring diagrams, which are very useful). The instructions appear to be quite comprehensive… Price is not a lot for a good manual and you get access to a fully qualified mechanic for the duration of your subscription should you have any questions.”
