Hi there.
I recently had the pleasure to meet DOCKLR in person.

Tell you what, the man is a wizard. He diagnosed a problem i did not know I had with my brakes.
He suggested I grease up my calipers as one of the pins were not moving correctly. This will lead to pads wearing off at an angle.

Check... Sure did. First time around just after I got the bike I did change pads and noticed the angular wear. I stripped the calipers and wragtag !!! one pin was stuck. Took me a while to get it out.
I added some copper slip grease and now i have full rear brakes.

Well Done Doc, Well done. !!!

He also suggested that I change all banjo bolts and washers. Well, I did, not because I had too, just because the Doc said so.

Always listen to your Doc, the man knows.

Thank you

Pretty much standard fare on all KLRs... always get to know your bike and be prepared to do the maintenance yourself... comes in handy when stuck in the boondocks.. ;)
