Proper size rim locks are perfectly acceptable to use on either Front or Rear KLR rims.
As long as the 'Trail-side' mechanic Knows How to Properly change the tube or tire with rim locks installed. That needs to be You!
If using 2 rim locks per tire, I'll suggest that both be installed between the 'Widest' spokes. Which means they WILL NOT Be, 'perfectly' straight across from each other. Easier to use wrenches between the wide spokes.
Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!
