I know that the two bikes are different and things like weight will have an effect on the wear of the rotors but I think that I should be able to get more out of them.

After market rotors are a must even on the newer bikes. I have a 320mm from KLR650 dot com. I had friends that put the steel break line on the front and it made a big difference.
The KLR is like a Jeep CJ or a VW Bug- cheap, ugly, and gets the job done. You can pay for faster, and you can pay for prettier, but those don't seem to matter for your use." by Subybaja
