Nerf bars and rad cap

Hi folks, bike just about ready for trip around Morocco. More mods/farkles than I can remember at this stage. Fitted Happy Trails PD Nerf engine bars to match htp engine/ sump guard. Was bemused to see left hand side upper mount go very close to the radiator cap. Rad cap cannot be removed whilst bars in situ. Anyone had similar experience ?

Generation 1, right?

The trick is . . . insert left top nerf bar bolt from RIGHT side of frame; then . . . you only need remove one 10 mm nut to . . . SWING, as in FOLD, as in PIVOT, the left merf bar away from the radiator cap for access!

Simple, what?

If you instead have a Generation 2, no speeka.

Only . . . RARELY, I think, will you ever have to open your radiator! Keep the reservoir at the FULL mark, and . . . doubt you'll have any problems.

+1 ^^

A KLR is not a motorcycle, it is a blank canvas with which to paint the rest of your life.
