Since the crankshaft stroke is longer (greater) with a "stroker" modification, I thought the complementing rod would be shorter, not longer. My mistake!


Just a thought; as to reducing engine vibration, have you considered fabricating and installing a heavier flywheel/rotor? The increased mass, and possibly, consequent shifted center/moment of inertia, of such a replacement flywheel should definitely reduce engine vibration. Such a mod would also enhance continuity of power/torque delivery at low rpm, as when you ride your KLR off-road (less tendency to stall).
