|DXKLR||While you are putting the bike back together, blue loc-tite every bolt and nut you can get your hands on.|

|mattysuehurricne||yeah i was worried about the height it would add, i took it out for a little rip today and realized two things, i have to lower it to do any kind of off road riding, and duro trails blow in snow.... I'll check out that sweet cheeks, i also took the bike all apart today to get familiar with it, I'm definitely going to make my own rad guards and engine guard/foot pegs, and the money I save on that I'll probably do the thermo-bob, doing are taxes this weekend so we'll see what I get back and what I'll tell the wife we got back|

EDIT: Ain't that special. It says not in stock on line and not sold in stores. I had my paws on one two days ago in a Wally World. Will post up pic's and receipt before this day ends to uphold my integrity.
MHO: I had one last summer. They are not water proof. Works well as a sponge. Sprayed every waterproofer I could lay my hands on all over it, to not much avail. Got so I could locate the KLR it was on by the smell. When caught in a downpour, the seat cover allows you to remember the rain for a couple of days, as you will get a re-wetted ass everytime you through a leg over it. Also to consider: If you are, uh "inseam challenged", this will add about an inch and a half to the seat height when mounted up. Air hawk may be an option. I had one till it got shredded on an unscheduled git-off. I liked it OK, it could be slid back out of the way when I had to actually work the bike through off road stuff. I tethered it with shoe lace, and left slack. My all time favorite is "Sweet Cheeks". Cheap [under $30.00], adjustable and works every bit as well as a Russell Day Long Saddle @ around $500.00 to start. Sport Tour LTD has 'em (866) 761-0936. The Sweet Cheeks works better into the grand scheme of things for me. Filling the two 2 Liter bottles puts water to the camp site. Fill 'em with cold water in the summer and my butt thanks me. I run the bottles with just air when it's cold. YMMV.

If you can't find one, let me know. I have 2 left.. $25 each, will cover the cost of the cover and shipping by USPS. And no, I'm not making any money on that deal..

Good advice. I wish I had had that when I started. Tech-days, YES! learn from the elders. Priorty, Yes. Mechanical, before visible always. If you guys from the last tech-day in Sacramento didn't see... Larryboy makes the walk around at every tech-day just touching your steering nut. He found, I think three that go round that was loose. Its the little things. In my opinion this was a very good reply to this thread. After market exhaust.... More money than horsepower, looks nice though, and sounds cool. Tomatocity, chime in when you want... Vatrader... Welcome
