KLR Alaska

Not sure how I missed gettin in this part earlier. Anyway, about my baby:

I had started thinkin about a KLR and upon doin some research I came upon a picture of the new blk/slvr color scheme for '07. When I called our dealer and they said they had a couple I rushed down and "fell in lust!"

Now lucky for me someone had ordered in a bunch of parts and then didn't want them so the dealer gave me a deal on them and installed them for FREE! That included a Big Gun Evo X full exhaust with ceramic coated header pipe, K&N filter, Dynojet Jet Kit, and Skid Plate. I also had them put on a set of alloy Moose bars and heated grips.

And since then I've put on some Lockhart Phillips turn signals up front and flushmounts in the rear.
Added an old BMW rubber fender flap extension to the front fender to keep the engine a little cleaner and a rubber flap to the rear to add some protection for the shock.
Cut out the inner lower rear fender and mounted the license plate directly to the rear fender below the tail light.
Replaced the stock mirrors with some Dual Star bar mounts.
And I put on a 16 tooth countershaft sprocket which I really really enjoy!

I also took off the kick stand cut-out switch, wire, and cable along with the clutch safety too. And yes, I'll be doing the "doo" soon. I'm also sure there's more to come....

Take care. Have fun. Mark H.

Any problems with the lack of a heat shield on the Big Gun header pipe?

Thanks Tumbleweed. You got a good eye to spot the uncovered pipe. Well it's not normally a problem in that I usually wear pants that are tucked into my boots. BUT, I used some rain pants the other day that didn't have any velcro at the bottom and sure enough they flopped over onto the pipe and buned some. And left a mark on the pipe. Oops. MH

A heat shield could be easily fabbed and attached with some stainless hose clamps.

Great looking bike.

I have the same Big Gun exhaust system>>

The complete exhaust (minus the muffler) is ceramic coated. That pipe actualy runs cooler than the stock pipe. There is no need for any heat shield IMO.

Well, it's winter up here now and I put on some Kenda Track Masters a friend studded up. I took these photos today. I have a couple hundred miles on them now. Seem to be working out pretty well.



I'm managing to keep pretty warm except for my toes. I think I may have to start using those disposable toe warmers. Oh well, just another beautiful day in the far north frozen paradise. See ya, Mark H.

And you already have the plate raised. Nice looking bike. :co019

The shortest distance between two points is a damn shame.......

I rode Broke Back mountain, and my a$$ is killing me.....
