    If you enjoy riding your KiLR everywhere, this is a no brainer.!!! Save your clutch hand for clutching a post ride beer.
    Finally rode the 6fidy (due to a mild winter) and wished I had done this before the Puppy Dog ride, HHUGE diff.
    Thanks 2HE !!!!!!!!!!!!! :D:D

    The clutch arms are still in stock and selling very well. I just started making rear cargo racks for the first and second generation KLR650. They are hand fabricated from 1/8" aluminum and come in a satin black wrinkle finish. They come with stainless steel countersunk hardware and are easy to install. Here's a picture. Reach me at: dakotabeemer@hotmail.com
    Thanks. 2HE

    Ernie, I got my arm back today and got it installed. Thanks for the super fast turnaround, looks good, feels good. Bike is currently apart at the moment, but I can already tell this is going to help a bunch on longer rides. Thanks!

    That rack looks good! Do you have any pics of a rack on a 2008 or newer? What is the price point of this rack?

    I installed the lever and am very impressed with the light clutch pull, and my bike has heavy clutch springs.
    I sent out the core today. Thanks !!!
