Cable boot / lights help 09 KLR

I need two items.
A lower clutch cable boot ( the rubber protector at the cable end ).
I checked my dealer and was told that they are part of cable assembly and can only be obtained with the cable.$$$$$
The other item is a instrument light for my temp gauge, dealer did not have any. Does anyone know a aftermarket source and part number?
I would like to deal with these two small items at the Etna tech day if possible.

Thanks

Part numbers at http://www.kawasaki.com , Owner Info, Parts Diagrams.

Even if you have to buy a new cable for a boot . . . spare cable may come in handy; some men tape-'em-on parallel to the one in service, I understand . . .

Just a suggestion; sometimes, parts vary from generation to generation; specifying your year model KLR may help insure useful responses to your inquiries about parts . . .

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

I have printed out a little fact sheet; occupies front and back of a piece of copy paperr, with . . . "All You Always Wanted To Know But Were Afraid To Ask About KLR's," pre-'08 model. If I can find the link to this treasure-trove of technical info (including, I think, all lamp sizes/numbers), I'll post it.

Has diagrams of how front and rear hub assemblies go together; I think critical torque specifications, valve clearances, spark plugs, fuse values, etc., etc. I found ONE error--I think the thread and pitch of the oil drain plug was in error; penciled in a correction, and . . . I'm good to go! Put sheet in a transparent plastic notebook "sheet protector," rolled it up, and lined my tool tube with the document . . .

I'm betting it's a 2008 + KLR that he has a Wrenching and Mod question about...

;^)

Touche', Tom Schmitz!

Paid no attention to the forum; little to the post, apparently!

Senility is CRUEL.

My little cheat-sheet does have instrument light bulbs listed; don't know if they changed with the generation . . . also, the cam timing orientation is shown, balancer alignment, etc., etc.

I think the oil drain plug is M12X1.5, vs. 1.25 as in the original.

Tee mod is described, full wiring diagram . . . useful little publication!

Yet . . . NO image, mention, or instructions on the PCV modification; sorry, tomatocity!

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

Found my link; Big Cee's website host the pages; "KwikSpecs Front," and "KwikSpecs Rear," in the FAQ section.

Here's a URL or two: http://www.bigcee.com/faq/KLRKwikSPecs17_scaled.jpg

Now this one:

(Dang; can't seem to make it work . . . looks like a gif file or something . . .

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

Well, I guess it ain't exactly the Dead Sea Scrolls, can't find a copy of the "Rear" page on the 'Net; no biggie, mostly a KLR650 wiring diagram (both generations readily available through Googling) and cam and balancer sprocket alignment diagrams.

Someone tell me where the bulb is and how to pull it and it is yours! That's why they call it a parts bike.

I've got to think someone offers a cable boot as a single item, what works on one should work on another.

On the end of the clutch cable where it attaches to the linkage beside your right foot.
