I made this setup for my KLR to fit any bike and still use my top box. I did a 2000 mile trip this spring and it worked well, aside from the fork quick release nut vibrating off twice. Luckily I was using a backup strap around the stem. I kept my weight centered as I did not want to upset the perfect handling of the KLR.
Tail of the Dragon shot, pegs even hit the ground a couple of times.
