No, it did not. Looks like just another used, abused rat bike with a cheap headlight now.

Even his bearing driver was driving on the wrong portion of the bearing, should have just used the BFH by itself.

You are a hard man to please.

Yes, I cringed watching him drive in that bearing, but as an EE I really cringed at his wiring skills. I hope he never gets that KLR wet.

I was trying to not be 'overly critical' of his work.

He has been deeper into the bowels of a KLR than I have had to go & I've never had any bike so totally disassembled, so I do have to tip my hat to him.

My post of the video wasn’t to endorse his assembly technique, but simply to recognize that he seemed to at least be trying to redeem himself from having destroyed a perfectly fine KLR just to make a video. Putting it back together (I assumed it was the one he trashed, but that may be a false assumption) seemed like the right thing to do.

He did prove that they are resurrect-able by even an average home mechanic. I'm glad that their home-made clutch holder didn't destroy the clutch hub!
Again I'll tip my hat, for their home-spun / backwoods ingenuity.

ps, I've been shifted into that ever so elusive 'overdriven' 6th gear! Maybe I ought to count them in the video?
