Nice mod!

What were the benefits for you? Sounds like it may be good placement for me.

I am 6'3" with a 34" inseam. A little more leg room for longer rides seemed like a good idea.

Just rode the Red KLR to/from work.

No tickets.

No crashes.

That's a good day!

Hello Fanbelt,

Finally heard back form the insurer. My bike is a write off. I have new for old replacement of the same make and model. So I will be getting a brand new 2018 model KLR soon. It will be the yellow and black version....

Good news finally! I like that yellow/orange color very much. Its a great color for cycles and
Porsches. Enjoy your new ride! My old blue/green 96 and my current 07 silver/black.
