Manny,
can you please pm me the galfer front brake line part number? Heck if you did them both, please share. My front brakes need some extra help. Thanks
I'll get all the info together from Ryan at Galfer and start a new thread this week (You're gonna LOVE the rear! The KooKoo Line-Loop IS GONE!). A Larger Front Tsunami rotor is coming, too. Contemplating a "cooler" rear rotor, too. On steep off-road gnarly stuff, you can COOK the rear...as in Cook it BAD. Been there, done that, scared the living Sh!^ out of myself!
🤣
Also, I'm trying to line-up a source for Yoshimura slip-ons for members via one of our well known KLR Gurus; however, I don't think it's gonna work in California...:cautious:

The KLR is my 5th bike.
My first bike is a '80 Honda XL250s
The second is a '80 Kawa KM100
The third is a Vento thunderstar that isn't currently running
The fourth is a '79 Yamaha XS650 special

They're all running and road legal except the Vento and KLR. I'll probably get rid of the Vento as it doesn't seem to be worth the effort, but hopefully the KLR will be ready by the end of summer.

Pic, L-R: XS, KLR, XL, Vento, and KM

I honestly don't know if my '22 KLR is my second or first bike. I also have this:

It's wonderful on the highway. Super smooth. Plenty of power. Great canyon carver. Decent off road. But every time I go for a ride I've been wanting to take the KLR. KLR is WAY BETTER off road. More comfortable too. Feels much lighter because it is. So the VStrom sits. I still like her though. But not sure what to do with it now.

Sell it. You only need one bike and that’s the klr!

At one time in my life I could have found reason for 7 or 8 different kinds of bikes + 1 more in just in-case one was out of commission. I could Never afford that many or had space to keep them, but I did have 5 at one point.

Don't you still have a classic KZ?
I still own my 1974 Z-1 900. Hasn't turned a tire since autumn of 1995. 72,000+ miles on its meter.
I still ride my 1989 KX500-E1, rode it twice last week!!

My wife owns a '73 G4TR & a '80 KZ550 LTD.
