Contact EagleMike, http://www.eagle-m-e.com/ . He makes two sizes of raising links; RL-1 and RL-2 with 2 raising the less. I have had the privilage of experiencing both. My used KLR came with the RL-1's and they were too tall so I went to the RL-2's. The links allow you to use more of your rear shock settings and raises your seat height.

My helmet hangs just North of Ann Arbor, MI. There are plenty of places around me for 50/50 riding, but some of the area is becoming congested with cagers. I have just over 1900 miles on the odometer since the purchase and am anxious for more.

As for my additions:
  • 1520 Pelican cases mounted on Studebaker mounts.
  • Studebaker nerf bars/tank guards w/engine guard
  • Studebaker center stand
  • Studebaker skid plate
  • Studebaker bar risers
  • Dual Star sub-frame upgrade
  • Dual Star motor mount nut upgrade
  • Clearview 7 over windshield
  • Mirror vibration isolators
  • Galfer SS brake lines
  • “The Doohickey” (not yet installed)

I am thinking on replacing the OEM tread with TKC’s. Of coarse, there are plenty of items yet to add, but I will have to wait until my other half is distracted.

Hi BioHazard - I'm in Sterling Heights basically due east of you about an hour. If you want, I have tools and I've done a boatload of Doo's so you're welcome to ride over and get that doo done. Gimme a shout if so.

If you are going to replace the rubber try looking at the Duro Median tires. I have run these and I am on my 3rd set. I average 6000 miles per set and they do pretty good in the dirt and above average on the road. The great thing is that you can't go wrong for $100.00 for the pair. Even if you think they suck you are only out $100.00.

judjonzz,

Greetings. A few questions about your tank. Is that the military tank from DS? How do you like it? Any problems with installation or use? What is the capacity that you can figure?

Take care,

f.2

I bought that tank direct from IMS; $225 shipped. It comes with a screw-on cap with a dirt-bike style vent hose. Mounting the tank is straightforward, but the brackets for the nose of the side panels are a little fiddly. I left off the brackets that attach the lobes of the tank to the rad and reservoir frame. I had no problem swapping the stock petcock over, but I understand that some later tanks have required filing of the sealing surface. The problem seems to lie with some subcontractors who have been doing the actual molding to keep up with the demand for military tanks.

My tank took 7.2 gal. the first time I filled it. The nominal capacity is 6.6 gal., but I have yet to hear of one that held less than 7.0; some take as much as 7.5.

I have crashed many times. I even let Jeffie Ecker ride it, and he crashed it all over SE Arizona. The radiator remains unscathed, although at some point the fan shroud deformed, snagging a fan blade and causing the hub to melt out.

I've seen several bags attached to the front of the fairing, also the bbq rack fastened there - do these have any impact on the smooth air behind the windshield? I would expect that they would cause some turbulence at highway speeds.

To be honest with you...
what smooth air has ever come over the top of a KLR.
I would think that when adding a headlight protector or fairing pack, buffeting would be the least of my worries.
