Hey everyone. New Canadian rider on a 2016 KLR 650 with 9000kms, stock with some basic typical mods. Been riding since fall 2018 on trails and street. Looking to modify the bike to suit my 6’6” 230 lbs frame. Any taller-rider ideas would be appreciated. Ideas on my short list are; lowering pegs, longer shifter, bar risers, taller seat, front progressive fork springs, higher grade rear suspension to allow for heavier loads and proper 30% sag. Long list: larger front break disk, heated grips, front dash ideas and convenient set up for navigation/cell, com device, electrical bells and whistle ideas. Looking forward to your wisdom.
