Gen 1 gen 2, year model parts interchange?

Been shopping around some online and see Gen 1 and Gen 2 as well as years from-to.
Can someone explain the differences and years that parts will interchange?
Mine is a 2016.

Thanks!

That's a pretty tall order.....almost easier to say which parts don't cross over plus many will work with some other changes AND there have been some minor changes even during the Gen1 and Gen2 model runs (ie. 2012 clutch change, 2015 rad/fan change, etc.).

I'd suggest reading these and then asking about a specific part you are wondering about. KLR650 FAQ

Hey Dan,
I also use partzilla.com for a quick lookup or similar site for parts lookup and reference.

Sheesh. I knew that. Sometimes I amaze myself how stupid I am and how much I forget.

Thanks for the reminder Sonoma!
