That sounds like a deal. Perhaps later this Summer Pete!
Awesome, we’ll see U later on this summer JJ.
Hey everyone! I am here to report my farkles
1. progressive front springs.( this stiffened up the bike and stopped the nose dive)
2. Ebay fork preload adjusters. ( this makes the front suspension adjustable for loaded and unloaded they work great $20)
3. https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B078XR2JMK/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 risers 2".
4. usb charger with on/off switch and volt meter. (this is one of the best buys, 3 amp charging, voltage meter is great to check the charging system!)
5. Mx foot pegs. ( If I could go back I would have bought the lowering pegs...)
6. Moose rear spring the white one ( works well I am 200lb so it has the right spring rate as I can set the sag properly) Not as good as cogent but $110...
7. Shinko 244 tires front and rear ( work well and can carve pretty good on the road too. Not a full knobby but a good balance and wears well.
8. Ebay grip guards bark buster knockoffs but are good and strong to me. I mounted the stock plastic guards on them.
9. Oxford heated grips. Got them on my quad and they make a huge difference in the cool days and rain.
10. KLX needle kit ( way better than stock. better throttle response and just feels like the power comes on more linear. )
11. 16 tooth sprocket. Makes hyway much smoother. And the 14 tooth for off road days. Takes 10 min to change. same chain.
12. lexx exhaust. (loud but not too loud. weighs 5lb less than stock boat anchor)
13. Eagle mike 685cc kit. ( wow what a difference! vibs are way less and no more oil burning. It is according to my butt dyno 5hp gain but the place I noticed it most is at 100km/hr twist and it pulls to 150 km/hr no problem. I feel way better passing.)
14. Thermo bob 3. Does exactly what it says it does. Temp needle doesn't move anymore 190 steady.
15.seat concepts comfort kit. ( swapped it myself on to my old pan and stapled it on. much better!!!)
16. SW motec crash bars (saved the bike already)
17 . Skid plate aluminum got off kijijji
18. sw center stand( I love this thing makes it easy to work on)
19. Tall windshield ( still not tall enough) I think the one that tips it forward and makes room for the klr dash is the way to go.
20.ss brake lines front and rear ( my bike is 11 years old so needed new lines anyway)
21. Eagle mike fork brace. ( I feel that it is stiffer on the road , more planted especially when fully loaded for camping)
22. UNI filter and air box mods( I like the carb sound )
23. I took the shifter and cut it and welded in a piece to make it longer and made it stick out a little farther.
24. Installed leds on the forks with a hose clamp.( trialing this out but so far they have not moved at all and I like that they follow the front wheel.
25. sub frame bolt kit
26. Tusk pannier racks
lol I think that is it for now. I like the KLR and now it's s good as it gets. Cheers
Is this unique?

Saw the pic of the klr and I would like to know about the trailer and the swing arm connection. I have been in contact with moto mule with no success on their trailers Please PM me with your response thanks ktmdoc
My new klr mod, tired of losing hockey pucks? Tired of temporary fixes that don't stick?
Meet the heater hose wrap .
Lol.........I filled mine with silicone sealer last time I had the tank off. Seemed to work ok once it dried.
Hey ktmdoc. Reach out to the folks at #kipmoto. They built my trailer and it is flawless.
Thanks I will I had zero luck with moto mule and I was curious about how the attachment axle connection was done
I've seen a few.
I fabbed up a front fender brace to avoid the shakes.
I modded mine a wee bit...
BF Al, that is very nice indeed!
Safari tank install on a Gen 1. Got this tank on a salvage yard KLR I bought. These Safari tanks are advertised by the manufacturer as Gen 2 only, but the US distributor says fits both Gen 1 & 2. I found that to be not quite true. The stock Gen 1 rad fan protrudes rearward further than the Gen 2 rad & rad fan set-up, interferes & contacts the tank. I had some extra parts kicking around, put a Gen 2 fan/fan motor in to a Gen 1 fan bracket assembly = low profile fan. Gotta swap electrical connectors, as they're different:
Even with that, I still had to bend the rad forward slightly to obtain this clearance - view looking straight down onto the fan:
This is one big ass tank! The black permanent marker mark on the side of the tank is 15 liters. They are advertised as 31 liter tanks, but have read they'll hold as much as 38! These plastic tanks tend to balloon and expand a bit over time.
The tank comes with this stainless steel cross brace support to add rigidity to the set-up. PITA to install:
Nice Work, GWN! That's a great looking tank!
