With the exception of the Doohickey

99% of my A16 KLR upgrades/farkles can be seen here:

http://www.mindspring.com/~gbyoung2/misc/klrstuff/

Why?

The bike is a blank piece of canvas, and I just wanted to make it more useable to me, and more reliable.

KLR body parts update?

Okay, I did search... Will KLR body parts from a 2006 fit on a 1993?
Thanks,

In one word... yes!

The only thing I have heard to be different are the mounting tabs on the rad shields between an 06 and 07.

Common, Kawi has tried very hard not to change one damn thing!
