Now I just need a new engine...

I would have cut the frame clean thru where the other frame broke, drilled the factory frame for plug welds and stuffed full tubes inside the existing tubes, shoved it all back together and welded it up. What you did will definitely help, just another way to skin a cat.

It's about $800 in parts to fully rebuild a KLR engine, new bearings and a 685 kit. 16 hours labor. Something to shoot for.


Nice work on your project!!
