Regular maintenance on KLE 500

After a good year of owning my KLE it deserved a good service. Previous owners kind of neglected the bike, only changed oil and oil filter. But today I did a full service on in it, cooling liquid, spark plugs, brake fluid, I have changed air filter a while ago (check blog). SO after 7 years spark plugs were all rusted and space between electrodes was way too big, coolant was all green and full of stains, brake fluid was almost like black water. Its to bad that people don?t take a bit more care for their bikes. This whole service didn’t cost me more than 40€(spark plugs, brake fluid, 1l coolant and 1l distilled water for mix, I didn’t count air filter in here as that alone was cca. 75€ because its a DNA high flow filter).

Here are some pics from service:

Bad condition of spark plugs

Fresh cooling liquid, clean blue color

So a quick word of advice: Take a good care of your bike, it will go a long way and it doesn’t cost a fortune. You will be happier and feel better out on the road when you know everything is in mint condition.

Have a nice day!
