    I think the OEM shift lever is too exposed but I couldn’t find a foldable one, so finally I made one.
    I use the standard one and add a Touratech folding ending from a BMW GS.
    It works great.

    I made a cheap splash guard for the upper rear wheel area. Cut down a piece of an old trash can attached with some strategically placed tie wraps. NO, I have never owned a KLR. :D

    Great idea. I just picked up some truck size mud flaps to make something for mine. I didn't think about using a trash can!

    Beautiful bike! I almost bought the black, but since my last bike was black (DL1000), I went with blue!

    I just traded my DL1000 on a 2012 S10. I LOVED my Strom, hoping I will like the S10 as much!:

    I own a KLR and have been wanting to upgrade my Tenere with this splash guard. Can you tell me if the rear tire clears the splash guard with full compression? I was thinking corrugated plastic but your trash can sounds good.

    Did you do this on Earth Day?

    That 1 in 527 grade will do it every time.

    You are right. the opposite direction I only managed 4.5085388994 L/100Km :deal

    Of course I always take lab grade measuring equipment with me at all times.

    Not sure how you even get close to 4.5 / 100km... The lowest i got was 5.5/100 while breaking her in - means easy riding up to 4000revs max, once the ODO hit 1000km and the revs could ho slightly higher - there went my 5.5...


    Ride hard, die free :-)
