Do a search here or on Google and you'll find nothing but positive about the Thermo-Bob. I have one and would say it's the best thing you can do for a KLR. Don't waste time asking questions - order one.

when it was warm out my motor temperature varied depending on how i was rideing it. When it was cold out it ran cold. With the thermo bob no mater what the out side temperature is my motor reaches a good operating temperture. And stays there. no mater how i ride it. is it worth the money? YES

As everybody says it is an improvement over the stock cooling system. But KLRs that don't have them run fine for tens of thousands of miles so obviously it isn't necessary. Here's a review of it.
