Just got off the phone with Schnitz. They are taking orders again, placed mine, but it will be 1 to 2 weeks before they get everything sent out. As for the machine work, I am going to talk to two guys I know who have had alot of work done on their motorcycles and go karts, see who they recommend. I would like to do it myself, have done bore kits in 3 of my dirt bikes with some help, but I am going to leave the machine work on the KLR to someone with a little more experience. Sucks about KLRCary.
