I think with links and a new seat, you'll be fine, but I'm also curious why a KLR for mostly street? I mean, I use mine for mostly street, but my reasons were wanting a "bulletproof" bike. It turned me into an occasional off-road rider, but that wasn't the plan.
If that made any sense, good. Waiting for the caffeine fairy to do her thing.
