On the Gen 2 KLRs what is the distance from the bottom of the fork tube (straight down,as if you hung a plum bob ) to the floor/ ground. Also I need the distance from the front tire up to under the fender @lower triple tree. Unladen, but bike level. I read some one used an 8” block between when using tie down straps ( as when hauling the KLR on a trailer or in pick up bed) I hauled bikes in the past without a block or brace, but prefer to not put undue strain on the seals. Especially if I have to haul it 150-200 miles. Besides I have one of those nifty heavy plastic ones I used with my KDX or DRZ, but think it may be too long. Thanks.
