Thanks for the links and the info guys. I'm going to try an oversized front rotor with new pads and a braided line. I like the looks of the happy trail panniers too and they're on sale to boot.

The EBC 310mm brake disc and new EBC sintered pads is one of the Best things I ever did to my KLR.
The Stainless Steel Braided F. brake Hose, is dependant on your personal taste and How much treachours, Steep Off-road riding you do. (I did not install, little more forgiving, IMO). On the Street, you'll Love it.
These parts are available from www.happy-trail.com, among others.
Check out, their brackets and bags, while you are there.
Sorry, no experience with Hard saddlebag mounts and bags on my KLR.

As to luggage: Cycleracks rack, pannier set (with auxiliary fuel container carrier) and top case. Shown on KLR250, but fitment and rack configuration are essentially identical on KLR650; would look better with bags filled:

Found my bike
I just picked up a 2003 KLR 650 with 18,000 miles. All stock except the doohickey has been done. Gotta do the normal maintenance items just to be sure there all done.
Besides that I want to add some luggage. Right now Iím thinking about a pannier rack from dirt tracks mfg with a couple pelican expedition cases. What do you guys think? Anyone running this setup?
I need to get the front brake working better too. Itís pretty weak right now. I donít think its air alone as I have good resistance in the lever. Iím hoping pads and a fluid change/bleed will improve it. Maybe change the rotor too? Any other ideas. My other bike is a 2010 Concours and that bike has a hell of a front brake. I donít think the KLR will come close to stopping like it does but I need better brakes to feel safe on it.
Thanks for any opinions/ideas in advance,
