Q: Front tire size, headlight level adjustment, hand pump?
I've looked over the forum Q and As and can't find answers to the following.
When off roading with KLR, the big problem with control seems to be the small width of the front tire, considering the weight of the KLR and the soft sand that we have here in CA OHV areas. Does anyone use a wider tire on the front?
My headlight beam is too high, and cars flash me to tell me so. The small owner's manual says have the dealer adjust it. Yeah, right. Any directions on how to do this? I could figure it out but could save time if someone else has done it.
When I go off road serious, I deflate the tires to 18 pounds or abouts. Then at home, 20 miles later, I just pump the tires up with a large bicycle hand pump. Does anyone know of a hand pump that works good that is small enough to carry with them on their KLR? Someday I'll get a 12v lighter thing but no time right now.
