Restoring my 1992 KLR650 just outside Florence, Italy

Anyone else near Florence, or in Italy in general with any hands on knowledge of a Gen 1 that I imported with my container of stuff back in 2005? It's been sitting in the barn since and have just started to get it back to working order.
Hit me up with a message or call me +39 3389407045 if you want to meet up.

@USMarineinItaly

I’m not in the CONUS right now; only have a phone at hand. I can’t respond through my website for a couple of days.

Those heat shields were pretty much built in place so I don’t have detailed dimensions for them. There is a sketch with some dimensions on it for the air box shield that another builder provided and I hope that can help you out.

I hope you are successful in getting it running again.

He asked for the dimensions of the shields in a request through the website. I never made drawings of the shields. Bluehighway's shield is really simple for the reservoir and perfectly adequate.
