Turned out the stainless steel the exhaust is made of can be welded with an arc welder. Begged an offcut pipe from the local exhaust shop to fit inside the broken pipe and welded it at home. Not so easy to weld 1mm metal without burning a hole right thru it. If the 2mm inside pipe was not there it would have been impossible for me and the welder I have.

What is the stock KLR 650 exhaust made of? Mine just broke in two. If it is mild steel I can weld it tonight. If it stainless steel I will have to leave early to find someone with a TIG welder.

Yesterday for the first time I cleaned the carburator of the motorcycle. After 100 000 km I was surprised at how little whare there was. It was dirty allmost black inside. Cleaned and fitted the bike seems to be happier.

All I can show are these pictures after the event. The bent crash bar and the scratches on the baggage rack. The dent in the ego cannot be shown nore the stif arm and sholder. I rode to work a lot slower than normal and a lot more aware of the dangers arround.

I fell. My first fall on tar. Nobody caused it accept for my own stupidity. Took a wrong turn and ended in the wrong road with the correct one right next to it separated by a pavement. I figuerd I can jump the pavement, after all it is no different than a log, accept I have not practiced this menoewer recently and got it wrong. Thanks for AGAT I am fine accept for my ego. Bent a crashbar on the bike. I was lucky...
