While your at it, go ahead and bypass the kickstand safety too, as it will eventually go bad on you in the middle of nowhere and you will be stuck trying to fix that while it's dark, in a down pour, and no tools. OK so a lil extreme, but you get the idea...

Previous ride was a 2007 KLR Black/Silver, I miss it..
Looking to get back into KLR's sometime soon.
