Oooh, I likey. I'm gonna have to have a look and see which one looks like it might be a good fit, which mostly means I need to decide if I'm using any fender at all, but I think we have a winner.

It's a x35f0x off a 01-03 GSXR 600cc or 750cc. The DR guys like the swap a lot, and there are at least a few KLRs with it that I've seen. Theres a slightly better pipe option of the gsxr 1000 (01-03...
