Good advice. Farkles are functional sparkle. We KLR idiots have a tendency to go crazy with the add ons. It's not a bad idea to ride it for a while and see what you want/need...

Farkles are just a way to turn the bike into YOUR bike, and what you want to do with it..

The longer you'll have it, the more you tweak it to your taste..

My 2002, bought in 2004, and all the add-ons.. And I'm planning on doing a couple other small changes this spring, still..



Enjoy it for what it is, learn the bike, and ask ALL THE QUESTIONS you want.. And WELCOME!!

Well, a very well known trait of KLR owners is that we're cheap.. (aka-frugal)

Most of the stuff I've purchased over the years have been used (aka-broken in)
