Awakening a thread from the dead, but I saw something you wrote else where that caught my attention so I read some of your posts. I have a DRZ400. I machined some wheels from a CBR f2 to fit my bike. They make it a little nicer to ride on the street and I put more aggressive knobbies on the origanal rims. Maybe you could do something like that with the KLR. also, I've been looking at the KLR's and I've noticed a few people have been machining the steering stem so that the KLR could mount DRZ400 forks. I would thing that would make your KLR a lot more aggressive bike offroad. It seems you have some mechanical ability and maybe that would be possible.
Lets go riding this summer.
M&M's don't know anything and have no meaning.
