So just got a used 2009 KLR, LOW MILES
It already came with a fork brace, heard its nice to have.
Im doing the doohickey, cause otherwise the engine could blow at anytime?
I heard i should upgrade the front rotor? For better braking.
Im also doing the Thermo bob replacement. And master cylinder guard.
I wanna ride this bike 100k miles plus before i get a new one.
What have you done to your KLR?
My original doodickie lasted 23,000 hard miles. I don't think you can go wrong investing in a more robust one.
The newer model brakes (I have an 05) are far superior to mine. Leave em alone for the time being.
I put a radiator guard on mine. It did not save the plastic panel, but it definitely saved the radiator.
I put a special shift pedal on that had a paddle welded to it to keep it from rupturing the side case during a dump. Though it got bent past serviceability, it saved the side case for damn sure so I bought a brand new one.
I put progressive fork springs and a progressive 420 rear shock on my bike. Awesome along with dropping it one inch even though I'm 6'1".
K&N filter, easy to maintain. Water pump and rear master cylinder guard.
One tooth larger front sprocket. Nice on the super slab.
Odessy dry cell battery.
EBC oversized front rotor.
