Well, after having ridden with it for a few weeks now, I have to say I am somewhat impressed. It took me a bit to get used to the vertical shape. The wind buffeting is less than the stock one but would be even better for a shorter rider (I'm 6'4") If I duck my head slightly then there is little to no wind noise or buffeting. The biggest drawback that I see with it is that you need to trim the headlight cowling to match or you have nice sharp little daggers pointing at you!
Notice the lower left corner of the pic. I didn't wanna trim it til I decided if I liked it or not. It bolts right on with no mis-alignment at all. Well made and now that I'm used to the shape, I'm all for it.
A KLR is not a motorcycle, it is a blank canvas with which to paint the rest of your life.
