I just won a 2013 low mile KLR on eBay. It has an aftermarket seat, skid plate, crash bars and panniers already. I am planning some week long trips (so heavily loaded) with many dirt roads. From what I can gather I should plan on doing the Thermo-Bob and Doo-hickey. I would like to upgrade the front and rear suspension. What are thoughts on a progressive rate vs. straight rate suspensions? Does the oversize front rotor make a big difference to braking on a loaded KLR? If so, it seems the Galfer system is cheaper then the EBC. Any difference between the two? Thank you everyone for your input.
