It's a Pelican 1500. Perfect size for a Gazeteer, some tools, tire inflator, snacks and extra shirt.
What is this mod? Maybe I am not that quick and you have simply put on the white rear spring?
I tried a search but it kept crashing on me (going to a blank page) for some reason.
I had one rear sprocket go bad on my Raptor in one day out sand duning and the O-rings breaking and coming out on a chain. I won't buy anything Primary Drive myself. JT or SunStar are my main ones and DID X-ring chains.
I did buy a set of Sidewinder chain & sprockets, Titanium and a super hard tool steel, even the chain ,I won't even say the price, but they were still on the quad when I sold it and looked new yet.
The white 7.2 kg/mm from topgun. I run ammo cans for panniers and the added weight gace me way too much sag. They are kinda a pain to compress since the spring id and damper od are close.
Went out with a buddy that has a KLR (He doesn't post on here....yet!). Found out that KLR's don't float, but they're pretty good submarines!
(There's more video's of his KLR on our channel)

Ah, I see.
I will be doing the same thing soon.
Just scored a pelican 1500 case onAmazon with free shipping. Pretty big deal to get free shipping to Alaska.
Thanks for the replies to my questions!!!
I am also a big fan of free s/h. That is the way most of the internet sales should be!
My ride today to Westport, WA with one of my buds from work....
I think I've finally managed to figure out what I want to do for my first real KLR adventure, and that is to ride across the United States to various theme parks 17 to be exact:
1. Knotts Berry Farm
2. Six Flags Magic Mountain
3. Six Flags Discovery Kingdom
4. Six Flags Fiesta Texas
5. Six Flags Over Texas
6. Busch Gardens Tampa
7. Six Flags Over Georgia
9. Busch Gardens Williamsburg
10. Hershey Park
12. Six Flags Great Adventure
13. Six Flags New England
14. Kings Island
15. Cedar Point
16. Six Flags Great America
17. Six Flags St. Louis
18. Silver Dollar City
Would be one hell of a trip, starting from my home in southern california and working my way up through the california parks, then down into texas, georgia, up through the east coast
Any suggestions on which might be good road tyres? Ive read that the Tourance are pretty good.
As far as road tires go, they are pricey, but heard great things about the new Annakee III and there is always the Pirelli Scorpion Trails, also in KLR sizes.
Shipping should be free and is most of the time for the lower 48, but unfortunately I live with the Alaska factor. Shipping is always much higher if they even ship. Tires are rarely even shippable so the 75 dollars s/h for Mitas E09s isn't bad. Going to watch the Canadian dollar waiting for the perfect time to strike.
I'd appreciate any help you guys can offer on which tubes to get for my 2011 KLR650. Standard tire sizes, front 90/90-21 and rear 130/80-17. My problem is trying to find a place to order them online so that I can be sure I am getting the right ones. I read somewhere that the rear needs to be a "type b" and I cant find a place to order them that makes it clear that I'm getting that.
I'm travelling and will be waiting on the tubes to get me moving again. Thanks a ton!
I am a sucker for free shipping! Great score bro!!
Here is my ride with one of my buds from work [/URL][/IMG]
Those or the look at the sinko 705's. They can still handle some light off road use.

I've ordered from Dennis Kirk and always gotten the tube as described. They don't use the type A, type B, etc., but describe the valve stems. Any of the CMV (Central Metal Valve) tubes of the right size should be fine.
(But this being ADV there will now follow a series of posts warning about your death in a fiery crash unless you get the yellower valve stems instead of the silvery valve stems.)
Finally took my '08 out on an extended freeway ride . At an indicated 75 mph , it was fairly smooth ( I'm running 16/43 gearing).
What I did notice is that the wind buffeting kinda sucked . Not as bad as my last bike ('05 DL650).
Anywho , I'm looking at the Moose and factory Kawasaki shields (4" taller). Would they make a noticeable difference ? Don't want to go to tall. I like looking over the top, rather than through .
Btw, I'm 5'9 on a good day. Just wan't to be able to tuck in out of the wind blast.
I looked at all of them and decided on the MadStad, a little big, but I adjusted it down and look over it. Works great on the highway, but maybe too big offroad.
I run Moose heavy duty tubes in mine. Never had a problem with 'em.
If you can't find anything pm me and I'll send you a set I've got here. No sense in you sitting around...
(But this being ADV there will now follow a series of posts warning about your death in a fiery crash unless you get the fork brace!!!
I run IRC heavy duty tubes usually, some Pirelli and Kendas. Just make sure to get the ones that are plenty big for your tire size and the metal stem, usually are chrome, nothing special.
I am liking my Dunlop Trailmax TR91's for a street tire. seems to grip pretty good, wouldn't do much offroad but some have said they were surprised at how they did. I haven't put many miles on yet to know just how good they are in all conditions though.
