Welcome to the forum!
The Progressive Suspension springs are Quite a bit better than the OEM springs.I ended up buying a set of Progressive fork springs. The more I read though, I'm beginning to wonder if I should bother installing them?
But you could drill your caps and build your own air adjustable caps.
Moving to the KLr from a literbike/sport bike you do indeed lose the ability to bend time and space. But, in the trade you get abilities you didnt have before. I avoid the interstate like the plague. As far as passing, you get to use use your skills and racecraft to plan it all out rather than just twisting the throttle. You have to ride the bike :8: I was forced off sportbikes due to health. I have my sorted first gen Klr and a Versys 300 and travel as much and have as much fun as before, just differently. Its all good.I kinda like having enough umph to be able to drop it a gear AT freeway speeds to pass or evade.
