I like that.
How difficult was it to do and what product did you use for the camo effect?

Just a quick photo of my 2009.......

The bike is a lot of fun, if a bit heavy.

Very nice, Any feed back on the front wheel and tire set up would be great. Looks awesome! Any more vibration with the 606 up front? 19 inch? What hub?

That's like the exact bike I have been looking at. I'm gonna get a new one in the spring, I just can't decide what. But that is one I've been eyeballing.

Front wheel was built by Woodys Wheels Works; Denver, CO, and is an 18" Excel, with a 120/90-18 Dunlop D606.

The 18" front wheel on the KLR is a highly-debated item, particularly on the KLR forums...part of the idea is that the wider footprint allows for a bit more flotation in sand/other soft terrain, as the front of the KLR is steamroller-type heavy. In retrospect, I would probably not put a D606 on the front, but that's hindsight now.

The D606's howl terrible on the highway.....Woody's laced up this wheel to the stock KLR hub. No extra vibration, etc., takes a bit more effort to turn on asphalt.

Aluminum trunk was purchased from Twisted Throttle, trunk is built by TraX. It's a nice unit, although the locking latches will fail to keep all but the most honest theif out- they can easily be pried apart with a smal screwdriver. A bit disappointing considering the cost.

Ultimate set-up requires a new center section for the OEM luggage rack, with a quick-release adapter post which allows the trunk to be installed/removed with just one key.

Shot from the rear........
