Doohicky done and

it also fixed my bad lower end bearings! I would have bet good money that something down there wanted out when I set my clutch out at lower RPM. But it's quiet as a new one now. MIkes kit is amazing! gonna have to get one for my old BMW's now....

The bearings seldom go, but sometimes they do! My riding partner lost his on an '08 early on; took 'er down, fixed 'em, and went 685 at that time (probably the last setup built by KLR Cary); he now has 55,000 miles on the clock and nary another problem.

Good on ya, Jim Sizemore!
