And they are by far some of the nicest people to deal with. Excellent build quality, great instructions!

Thanks, I sold that bike so you'll have to tell the new owner about the fender but I agree it would look better black.

Now I have a 2001 XR650R and a 1987 VFR700

I really enjoyed modifying the KLR. I'll be keeping my eye out for a basket case KLR that needs an EX500 engine swapped into it.

Here's a picture of how mine used to look. It has an IMS tank now and I redid the tubing gaurds for it. Only I haven't mounted them back on yet. Thinking I'll change the design a bit to make it more versatile. Like a rack above the headlight to mount my Thermarest Matteress on.



I made all the tubing stuff. And the Bags...

I'm too cheap to buy it I guess.

It has taken some hard get offs and saved the tank from harm.

I did buy a Moose Engine Gaurd cause I wasted the stock one in that last fall. And, it has had the Doo done.

In the works are a bigger front brake rotor and braided brake lines. A Corbin Flat seat and a 685 big bore kit cause you can never have too much.

I really like riding the big big single. Don't see any need for a bigger bike right now. This one has 17,000 miles on it the first year. Who knows, once I break the Corbin in maybe I can get 25,000 added on this year.

That's some nice tubing work. I bet it will look like an armored bike with the IMS tank.

I had a pretty rough get off today while going though some mud and muck. The best investment I have made so far have been the Happy-trail.com Nerf bars and Alpinstar Tech 6 boots. Without either of these two items, i am sure that I would be in alot worse mood. No damage what-so-ever to me or the bike!!!!

Welcome, Jay!

I've got just the site for you: Marknet's KLR650 Site. The two procedures you asked about are there, along with lots of other info.

Not sure if you have found this site yet--- http://www.bigcee.com/klr650faq.html

It is the Bible for KLR's. I actually printed the whole thing and bound it for use in the garage.


I have a question-
Has anyone, besides me, had problems with loosing the two screws that hold on the side fairings from vibration? I would lock-tite them, but I am constantly doing something that requires them off. What a pain-in-the-ass!

Yeah, it happens. I lock-tited mine, and keep a small tube of lock-tite on the bike. One idea I picked up (from JudJonzz, I think) is to leave the two seat bolts out. The seat will stay in without shifting much at all and you get quick access underneath.
