I only have a couple weeks experience with the KLR, but I do have some past experience with the dual filament mod question.
Relying on some really bad information that someone got dual filament bulbs working “effectively” on their Versys 1000 (same light set up as klr), I made a serious attempt just last summer to convert my Versys 1000 to a more traditional hi/low configuration on each side, replacing the single filament bulbs with dual filament bulbs. The mod failed because (contrary to the information I relied upon) the reflectors were ultimately not set up to accommodate the dual filament bulbs and caused the light dispersion to go all wonky. I couldn’t make them work by shims or other means and went back to the original configuration.
I do not know if the klr reflectors would cause the same dispersion issues, but I can see by looking at them that they’re different on both sides suggesting that there’s some engineering behind them to support the factory lighting.
