This is the fender I used......

http://www.maier-mfg.com/catalog/kaw...le-rear-fender

And this is the tail light.....


https://www.bajadesigns.com/NET/P-60...,+Led+Dropdown

I had got the fender and tail light for my KLX 650r. I was going to get it plated but decided to go another route....

I am going to take the forks off the KLX and put them on the KLR..... then sell the parts of the KLX to get a new rear shock..... and other things.... I really didn't do much to the fender to make it fit... I made holes in the front of the fender so I could attach it to the KLR sub-fender. Then I mounted the rear rack and marked where the holes needed to be... I did have to adjust the holes a little but it still didn't turn out bad...

Now the back of the seat is up a little because its not cut down like the stock KLR rear fender.

I then 'fabricated' some spacer/mounts out of UHMW and some J-bolts.
Here is a view from the bottom:

Old Nubbins-

I had those racks and now have the Happy Trails SU racks with Pelis, and I'm 99% sure they won't (at least won't mount well) to the other racks.

Just bought her a week or two ago, so I am still in the "fixing what the DSPO screwed up" phase.

So far:
both side covers off to inspect and clean out the metal I found on the oil filter.

EM doohickey ordered
new headlight fairing
new rear brake lever
new front brake rotor and pads
cleaned and painted tank

I'm sure there is more that it will need...

farkles soon.. gotta get her road worthy 1st.

Don't forget to show some pics....

Question

I bought a pair of Wolfman Summit saddle bags in the classifieds here without doing much research on them. Now that I've got them, I'm a little concerned that I won't be able to make them fit. The attachments are supposed to go to the pegs (straps not long enough) and there is a buckle/strap that connects across the back that is also a bit short. Has anyone successfully used these on a KLR that can tell me how to install them?

Not good. I have lowered it 3" from that. I am going to have to brace it. I think I will try a stock windshield. The packer is mounted through the bottom with fender washers.

I had a pair of the older Summits on my KLR.
I did need to do a little modifying straps and use an aftermarket heat shield on the muffler. After that trip I decided it would be best to have some additional support for them if I was going to grossly overload them like I did on that trip, so made a lightweight rack that the bags fastened to.


This was much better and more supportive.
