Understood; you're needs are unique and you don't seem to be overly bothered with budget constraints. My comment was for others reading; they don't need to spend $2k+ on suspension mods to get the bulk of the improvement.I just wanted to point out that you don't need to spend that much money; you can get a DDC kit and an Adventure shock for $838.90 and get 95% of the functional difference as going all out./QUOTE]
You can, but you can’t get adjustable compression damping without it and that was something I decided I needed in regard to my kidney transplant. Truthfully, I really wanted high and low speed compression damping adjustments, but Touratech doesn’t offer that for the KLR. They do for the BMWs though. If they would have made one for me I’d have been willing to put 2K into it, but alas they didn’t have a suitable shock body for it.
I’ll be honest, I have some health issues aside from my kidney transplant. If I want to ride long term, I need to do all I can to build a suitable platform. It’s just money. I have enough to do what I need to the KLR so I can ride for another 10 years or so. Maybe more if I’m lucky. I’m not willing to not ride if the only obstacle is money. What I’m doing to the KLR is not something everyone needs or wants, but it is what I need and want if I’m going to keep riding.
