    Oh my,today I spent about 25.00$ on the green love of my live,been needing to move my rear turn sigs for my soft bags,cyclegear had some bright flush mount sigs and I thought it would be a kind thing to save this innocent pair of lights from some fairinged sport bikendrilled some holes in the rear fender and I think they will be happy for their life as KLR turn sigs,or at least until I cross a deep creek.The 2nd event was I had a plastic breadboard I used as a rack for my beloved DR350 and cut off some pieces to make an heat shield for my repositioned soft bags,I think its gonna be a great day fer me and the Mistress KLR as we have new cheap fixes to bragg about at the next Harley biker event I sneak my way into.Those Harley people throw away stuff that will always make good KLR farklels.

    On another forum they were talking about "free performance". It's called the MC Mod and you just have to advance the exhaust cam one tooth (7.X degrees).
    Apparently, a significant amount of horsepower and torque are achieved throughout the power band.
    I haven't done it yet, but next valve check for sure! :nod
