Hi guys.

Recently got a 2008 KLR and the engine is not looking good. Does anyone have a contact for a second hand engine or perhaps decent spare parts for the engine?

Hi,
tell us a bit more.
Where are you in SA?
If you say not looking good, what does that mean?
External damage on engine or internal problems?

From Cape Town.

Got the KLR that was on Gumtree a few months ago, the white and black one. Went for a ride with the clan here a few weeks ago and Deon mentioned dark smoke when I turn the throttle full. Took it to KJ for a service and he says there are bad noises and that the engine is fooked. (I don't know much about engines). Got a second hand engine bottom yesterday so that's good. Will rebuild the bike until she is healthy again since I plan on keeping it for many years. I love the bike.

Nope, black smoke is over fuelling, petrol or diesel.

So it seems apart from the unhealthy noises, there is 1mm play on some shaft, the timing chain was maxed in terms of stretch I think.

Previous owner said the bike was run without oil. I saw the invoice for the fixing of valves and shims something.
