KLRsys build

KLRsys = Versys powered KLR - two cylinder, fuel injected, six speed KLR.

I've been thinking about doing this swap ever since I saw a review on the Versys and they remarked how narrow the engine was for a 650 twin. I few years went by and I found myself with an extra KLR. Last fall I decided to seriously look into this and came across RepsolRider's Super Rio thread in this same forum. That's all I needed to see, within a week I had a donor bike in the garage and I got started. I'm not quite finished but I've ridden it a bit now and I'm very pleased with the results so far. It doesn't feel any heavier than my other KLR and it's a lot smoother and faster.

Couldn't leave well enough alone so I built another one. Link

And there's a third one in the works now. (it's done) Link

And we rode them all from Texas to Alaska and back.
