I;m sure a good many of you have heard about the thermo-bob. I bought and installed one in January. Prior to install my KLR would never get off the cold mark except when at idle for several minute. After ... was like night and day. The temp would climb to just below half and stay there. Even while riding at 5 degrees. Today was 60 and even riding through town and several lng traffic lights it never got over half the temp gauge. This is something that should have been included from the factory. As of yet I have heard nothing bad about the t-bob. Everything has been good.
Now ..... Last year in Moab a rider had had a t-bob on his KLR 705, some of you may even know him. The Patman. He rode with us and never had cooling issues even riding slow speed on the WRT. Patman thinks it's one of those must haves as well.
