    actually looks like a Model "C" and like the" B" (Tengai) was sold around the world, but not in the U.S.

    the B was available in the U.S., but only one year....

    Not to hijack the post but have you noticed that some Tengais have flush mounted front blinkers? (just google "tengai" and start looking at the pics. Mine stick out like A model KLRs. Is this a year/model difference or is it a import spec difference? It would be nice to have the flush mounted ones as they would be less likely to get banged up or snapped off.

    I have seen this.
    I have noticed the "flush" mounted signals to be in Europe on the newer models. Mostly, anyways.

    These are the ones that I will be using, although I would only need to source one more of the flush mounted signals in order to have a set of those as well...

    Here's a set of flush mount on ebay - a little pricey...but pretty cool.
