...too bad you're not in Colorado as we're doing these things along with the doohickey upgrade today. These forks imho are pretty ancient design and easy to replace seals on, I'll let you know in a few hours if I run into anything odd but don't expect it. Choke lever seems to be a continual problem. You can replace the whole cable with a KLX250 on carb assembly which is what I did, end of problem. Do a search on choke for part numbers, etc.

Cheers, I'm back to the garage,


Farkled probably WAY too much, but good 20' footer for sure. '96 KLR, '06 HD VROD, (girl friend hauler), '05 HD Electra-Glide, heh it's a HD and I'm old now ;-) and I'm proud of riding a 800+ pound bike at my age :-)

Mine's "adjustable" by tightening or loosening the housing on the handlebars. LOL
After having the bars off then doing the reinstall, I wondered why the lever kept
going right back up. Tightened it and now it's happy. Go figure.
No, it's not a real answer but it works on the new generation KLRs.

The seals are an easy job if you are mechanically inclined enough to change oil,
adjust your chain, etc. Just follow the instructions. The forks have to come
out of the trees and the new one's slide down into place.
