New KLR Rider How to prepare for Adventure Ride
Good Afternoon everyone,
I am new to the KLR world. I have owned my 2013 for nearly a year now with a bit of riding under my belt however due to a busy schedule not as much as i had hoped. I am wanting to spend more time on it this year though and want to prepare it to do a portion of the TAT. I was hoping to reach out to the community to see what everyone believes are necessary mods to do prior to hitting the road.
A couple things i would be interested in are suspension upgrades, Skid plate upgrades, Rad covers, a metal chain guard seems hard to find? and anything else that people have found necessary to improve.
Things i have done so fare are basically tune up work, addition of bark busters and removal of some excess lighting circuits the previous owner had added. I have also ordered a brass choke plunger by stead engineering as I found the plastic one not very robust when cleaning up my carb.
