What's an 08 need?
OK, small backstory. Been riding my 73 cb450 for a while. About to have a kid and decided I needed a more reliable ride. Also, I'm 6'1", 210. But I didn't want a "big" bike. After consulting some people and reading a lot I decided on the KLR. I ride only on the road. I commute on the bike. I absolutely love it, but I don't use it really as a dual purpose. Before I decided to buy an 08 I read a lot about the doohickey and the 'necessary mods' because I was going to buy used. I know the 08 addressed a lot of that. I am putting in a nautilus horn because the horn sucks...my Honda's 35 year old stock horn is way better. I will put gripsters or the like on it when the knobbies wear out. My question: is there anything that needs to be done to the 08? I'm thinking maybe the doohickey from what I've read. Any advice appreciated.
Oh, and I'm not a wrencher, so that aspect is not fun for me...I just like to ride. Point being...I'm not looking for things to do.
