klr4evr, Yes so? Kawasaki in house model ID KL650-B1/B2/B3----,KLR650 "Tengai", is a nickname! Still a 'KLR', just a variant. The USA received the -B2 an-B3.
Sort of like Ford Mustang and Ford Mustang "Cobra".
Notice the machined-in F. fender bracket in the F. fork legs, like most street bikes. Notice the Aluminum passenger foot-rest brackets. Notice the Lower Edges of the side-panels 'mimic' the lower Edge of the fuel tank. All these differences are correct for the KL650-B "Tengai".
Yes, I do think someone installed a Gen2 heatshield. They should have installed the complete Gen2 Header pipe.
Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!
Still riding my 1987 KL650-A1. 84,000+ miles & counting
