I will suggest that in the Long Run, the EM Doo-Hickey & Torsion Spring is 10 times more important to the longevity of the KLR650 engine than proper operating temperature with the Thermo-Bob 2.
A broken engine balancer chain adjustment spring can instantly destroy an otherwise perfectly fine KLR650 engine, by being bounced UP into high speed rotating parts.
I didn't purchase a KLR650 to ride the flat, smooth pavement. Did You?
Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!
Still riding my 1987 KL650-A1. 84,000+ miles & counting
