So I recently got a 2004 KLR 250.
The plan is to restore it to it's former glory; it has not been given proper respect and care. I hope I can do it justice. Gonna be an interesting little project. I've just started stripping and checking the bike.
The First thing I need is a proper Workshop manual. Does anyone here have one for sale, by any chance? It has been suggested that I contact Kawasaki directly about this. Someone said I can download one as a PDF. Dunno; I'm open to suggestions here.
Attached a couple of pics; no real detail to show.

My original post, called Facelift on a Fuglet(My bike is a 250, hence FugLET, not FugLY), has somehow become 2 threads, and this thread is the spawn. I have no clue :unsure: how this came about(I don't recall being THAT deurmekaar or under the influence...) :P , or how to merge this thread and the original.
Can a moderator possibly "fix" this?
Apologies if it is a PICNIC situation, or an ID10t error..

'Morning everyone,

Happy Friday. B)

I'm making some progress on the bike, but it's slow due to the non elasticity of the Rand. It seems to shrink very well, but stretching; ja, not so well....

Anyway, a couple of questions:

1) Who does an excellent Powder Coating on a bike frame? * Is there now a better way to coat a bike frame without being extravagant?
2) The fuel tank has a couple of niggly little dents which must be removed, and the tank and plastics must be resprayed professionally by someone who really knows his stuff. My panelbeating and spraypainting abilities are k*k. Any suggestions?

I live in the Randburg area.

Any words of wisdom would be appreciated.

Lekker weekend, all. :)

Cheers
