It's a new year so we start a new thread. Who is doing something to their KLR today?
The two knobs are indeed a roll-stop mechanism. See below.@schlim, they have either changed the design a bit or changed vendors. I see that there is some sort of roll-stop thing going on, perhaps, with those two knobs. The locking bar stops are a bit different, too.
It still looks like they have the cast-iron wheels. If you plan on using it primarily in the garage, you might want to consider new wheels. It takes some drilling out of the rivets on the casters, but it isn't too hard, nor is it really expensive. The results are quite pleasing.
I can take pictures and provide more detail if you like.
Pullled out my old squeaker OEM horn and put a Hi/Lo set of 2 horns from Hella. ($11 Amazon) Both fit back into the same location as the OEM horn with their own brackets. Just had to solder on jumpers for the extra horn connections. 108db View attachment 28423
How do they work? I want to install a louder horn on mine but am concerned if the existing circuit will reliably power them.
I was thinking a relay with direct power from the battery would be the way to go.
