Loven the pig sticker saltbox !!! I have a pet house pig so that has sort of set the theme of everything I own now. Where would a fellow KLR rider and pig fan score a sticker like that ?

Clutch side was a breeze, throttle side requires some adjustments with the controls. Basically just slide everything in a ways. Not necessary to trim the levers, it all fits. I like 'em.

Luckily I started on the throttle side as it was pointed upwards. When I cut off the end of the throttle tube I discovered the end of the bar was plugged with silicone. Hmmmmmm. I used a spade bit in the drill to explore and struck lead shot, had I done this on the clutch side the lead would have spilled everywhere! I dug out just enough lead to make room for the mounts to fit in snugly and called it good.


Rocky Mountain ATV is where I got 'em.

Does anyone have a write-up on how to do this mod? I'm also looking for info on how effective it is. I'm 6'3" and the stock windshield dumps the air right at my upper chest. Would be nice to move it up without buffeting. Shoot me a PM if you have info or more pics!

Had the opposite with my install (2008 KLR). Clutch side was VERY tight where the bracket meets the crossbar, throttle side was 2 minutes max. No problems at all with the bar ends. They are solid on the ends. Only real gripe was that the wind deflectors only came with two screws each instead of the required 3.
