This may be coming out of left field, as this thread is 6 years old, but I'm new to KLR, and having had reasonable success with Clymer and the rest of my "new bike" maintenance and upgrades, what puzzles me is the front wheel. When put together according to the book, it hardly will turn. Seems the torque recommendation squeezes the two forks against the wheel and restricts it turning freely. Am I missing something. I've checked the schematic, and no parts are missing ...?!
Thanks in advance,
