Sub-frame bolts and other stuff
I have a question for those that have some time wth these machines.
I have been riding for 30+ years and see a lot of mods being done.
The question(s) here are:
What do the bolt heads on the standard sub-frame bolts look like on the KLR, (from the factory)? The bolts on this bike are 10.9 harness, 7MM allen head bolts, and the bolt under the fuel tank seems to be the same thing.
((Oh, I bought the bike from the original owner and the bike was sold at Carl's cycle in Boise, ID. They do make some minor changes when they prep them for sale.))
I take it that the dealer will not normally raise the forks to the full position, (1/8 inch) below the triple clamp.
Is that correct?
Mine are set in the shipping position, and seem fine to me, as the steering seems quicker.
The rear shock appears to be set at max load or rather at the hardest setting.
I am 6'3", 245 lbs. The bike doesn't seem to be like riding a pogostick.
Oh, I bought the bike for 4K with 600 miles on it and a few months of warranty left.(I sold my 97 F650 to get this thing)
I just, (last night) did the air box mod and put on a Moose racing bash plate.
The Doo-hickey mod is set for this week.
Any of you long term KLR owners got other ideas for mods?
Thanks in advance
