That is until I changed my rear shock to the Progressive 465. Now I tip toe, or slide to one side of the seat and flat foot one foot.
Yet I ride my KLR through single track, dirt, mud, sand, gravel and highway without any problems.
I bought lowering links for the bike but never put them on.
I want the ground clearance for going over the rocks and logs.
Hell. A dual sport needs the ground clearance if you're going to ride it through those conditions.
I also bought a 16 tooth sprocket for highway and a 14 tooth for single track, but never changed from the 15 tooth as the bike does everything I ask of it.
It has great low end torque off road but has nice gear ratio for highway.
Oh. And he can save on buying a seat if he just takes the cover off the stock seat, shaves the foam down and recovers the seat using the same stock cover. That will lower the bike enough for him.
Here I am with my bike loaded up for a trip to Laurel Fork in West Virginia
Take note that I'm sitting comfortable due to the weight of my gear lowering the bike.
Here it is at a pit stop for some food
