just adopted this 2002 model C klr, 37k miles, was gifted to me by a friend.
I've been going trough the endless list of mods I could do since I got it,
but it really needs some minor touch up to go back on the road.
I'm currently looking for a front master cylinder/ brake lever,
I've seen that there's a fairly decent selection for it for the same price a stock brake comes,
what would be the best bolt-on option I should go for considering the disk and caliper are stock?
I've read about people mounting an ER-5 or even Ninja 250 master cylinder.
I've also been trying to bring back a bit of the liveliness to the fairing,
I started by sanding (320-500-1500) and then a few pass of buffing wheel,
pretty decent result but still kinda dull compared to the original finish.
I'm thinking about trying the meguiar Plast X to see if I can bring a bit more polish to it.
I've already had the chance to try the bike for a couple of day long rides,
and the only gripe I had with it is the vibration, 20 minutes after getting off the bike the delirium tremens kicked in.
I was planning to get a pair of softer gel grips and maybe install a balancer set,
but taking off the grips to change the throttle cables I realized there's a weight welded in the handlebar that goes about the lenght of a hand inside, rest of the bar is empty.
I think this is counterproductive in terms of vibration reduction,
so I'm figuring out if I can just heli coil the weight and put a balancer on,
otherwise I'll probably get a new handlebar.
That's about it for the mis en scene,
I'm gonna try it for 500 miles and see how the oil consuption is like,
then I'll see if I can afford modding something else.
Do you guys have any suggestion for grips (or anyting that can reduce vibration really)
and polishing the soft plastic of the fairing?
