Nice route the little  I got to ride of it!

Yep, KLR is hurting, something inside the trans let go and now the output shaft is basically unrestrained and a floater.  Trans was making somewhat of  a strange noise when I left home this morning so it wasn’t John’s pace but I imagine that didn’t help it much either.

Rear tire covered in oil probably didn’t help my riding very much either.

I’m going to pull it down this week for a look see but from what I can ascertain from outside it probably isn’t worth repairing.

GPS showed I hit 84 mph on one stretch so I guess I’m  lucky it didn’t lock the rear wheel  on me during that stretch.

Big thank you to the group and especially Jeff for towing me out to where I could recover it  easier.
