Absolutely, tomatocity!

If I had a KLR, I might not have time to type on my keyboard questions like,

How does the Thermo-Bob increase the cooling capacity of the stock water pump and radiator?

And,

What is the mechanism causing stock '08 and later doohickeys to stick to the cases, immobile and incapable of adjusting counterbalancer drive chain tension? How do aftermarket doohickeys avoid this dread phenomenon?

Without a KLR, I have time to read the answers on my monitor, also!

I don't even OWN a KLR, tomatocity!

How many Gen2 levers have you observed, "stuck to the case and not functioning," in your personal experience?

What is the adhesie mechanixm of this "sticking?" Glue? Doohickey permanently welded to case?

The Generation II OEM doohickeys are prone to STICK to the cases?

A spring replacement wouldn't help any in those cases, would it?

How sad.

Remarkable; ain't there supposed to be lots of oil around there?

------------------

Don't want to talk about how a Thermo-Bob increases KLR water pump and radiator cooling capacity?

Not a problem; I'll not bring up the subject again.
