    I thought you're aiming for a DRZ so we can have enough bikes to form a DRZ's club, It's good looking ride though.

    Im going to be looking to make some adjustments. If anyone can help let me know. The KLX has handle bars risers and too big of handle bars for the original mounts. If anyone has bars they want to trade for the risers and/or the bars let me know.
    same with the seat; as seen in the picture its got one of those flat wide ones for comfort. Id like something closer to stock. if anyone has something to trade let me know so I can avoid having to sell stuff..

    update: I may have these two problems resolved for now..
    I think I can swap seats with my KLR before I sell it....duh (thanks for the idea Dos
    Found risers that arent the 6ish inch rise but only a half inch or so with the same change in HB/clamp diameter

    I think I have a stock KLR seat. Not really sure what year. I think it came off of @viper05 's old bike. I'll check tonight if it's still in the shed.

    Yeah,,, was just gonna chime in my ol klx was very different from my ol klr,,,,, most of the engine is the same but thats about it. I tell ya, if there was a big tank option for the klx back then it would have been a great bike,, ahead of its time and that was a shame.
