Kind of a mixed bag. IMO Gel does offer more comfort under favorable conditions. However, in summer if you park in the sun it can get uncomfortably warm and retain the heat for quite awhile. In the winter the gel hardens with lower temps.

Thought so . . .

Reckon a KLR igniter's ignition timing map (spark advance curve) might be re-programmed, plausibly, but . . . ain't never heard tell of such . . . can't re-program fuel-injection map, cause . . . ain't got no stinkin' fuel injection!

------------------------

From the Power Commander website:
Quote:
What is Power Commander?
The Power Commander is a fuel injection adjustment unit that plugs "inline" with the bike’s stock ECU (electronic control unit). The PC uses original equipment style connectors, so no splicing or cutting of the harness is required. Most installations take less than 15 minutes, some as little as 5 minutes.
No application listed for KLR's.
