According to the Watt-man KLR Timeline, bikes with VIN of 20749 or lower have the deep hole, bikes with VIN 20803 or higher have the fix. I believe this refers to the last 5 digits. Might not be an issue.I've got my doohickey parts ordered so I can do the doo. Also checking the deep hole issue. The kit I'm getting from Eagle Mike should have the spacer since mine is an 09.
