I'm doing the CAM 1k in 2 weeks on the KLR. I geared it with 14/45. Rejetted it and put on a new rear tire. Tested it last weekend at 13k in a severe storm. the hail was bouncing off my helmet and the trail turned into a river. Everything worked well except my gloves. Found out they were not remotely waterproof. Could barely feel my hands when I got off the mountain. I will post pics and video from the trip when I get back.
