Rode it like it was stolen 🤣🤣🤣. 40 miles through the hills of twisty two lanes in middle Tennessee. And planned out a service schedule/farkle install prior to riding to Daytona in March.
Did you have to cut off the damaged section?Pulling the Lexx for a repack and found what the last barbarian did to the collar. Hammers should be a restricted item. LOL

You should identify as a snow bird and go south to avoid all that nonsense🤣I had a Buell S1 Lightning! The Hands weren't the ONLY thing that went numb after a longer ride! It took quite awhile before the old "manhood" got feeling back!
It sure was fun to ride though!!!
Welcome to the KLR world! Be sure to read “Common mistakes for new KLR owners “ on the forum. Keep the sunny side up!Well, I just bought my first, bone stock, 2009 KLR in November. So far it's Tusk bars/pannier racks, Vstream smoked shield, and yesterday a NiceCNC luggage rack to attach my bargain Givi 32L top box I found in Amazon for $100 bucks! The factory luggage rack had several nasty holes drilled in the plastic and didn't appear Givi friendly. Loving her so far!
The shape of the Klx needle is different, and makes low speed response much more predictable, and overall the torque comes on in a very linear curve. Just pure, smooth torque with no hiccups. Also, since I have an aftermarket pipe, I needed a larger Main jet. The “more open” pipe allows more air to flow through the engine, which can make the bike run lean which is no good. The larger jet gives you more fuel to get a proper fuel to air ratio, and a little better response on low end.Nice. What was the motivation for this change if i may ask.
We have had a very mild February in this neck of the woods, which has made for some great riding! You’re not far from me, I’m south of Nashville. You ever ride the TN Dirt Devil?We've had some good days to ride in north Alabama lately.
It's nice to be on the back roads sometimes, where a Goldwing shouldn't tread. View attachment 40110
If you’re ever up for coming up this way, give me a shout. The Dirt Devil is a nice easy ride.No, I've never been there. I haven't had the KLR very far from home.
I’m still not sure I’m gonna leave them mounted in that position. I’d like to have them fold if they hit dirt, but I highly doubt I’ll have them extended when riding off highway.What brand Highway Pegs are those?
They do the job intended. They don’t slip/bend and give my knees a break on longer rides. For $18 I’d recommend them for sure.How do you like them?
Kinda like Captain Jack Sparrow meets Road Warrior! Throttle in one hand and a Machete in the other!
Now.... where to put that Parrot?
Sweet looking ride! You like that Yoshi?View attachment 40512
Got rid of the Mickey Mouse ears!
My high school science class comes to mind…potential energy. Compressing one of those sure creates the potential for hurt if not careful😉In preparation for some moto camping trips we have planned, I decided to swap out the rear spring on my Gen3. Personally, I'm comfortable with the OEM spring on setting 5 and I'm about 275lbs, but I know I'm at the limit. We don't travel as light as we probably should, so better take care of it now.....
You truly don't know fear until you've compressed the 525 Top Gun spring!

Love mine also, and it came with the bike👊🏼.Yes sir I do! Disclaimer: I did it for the look and sound and had no expectations of increased power. I've had Yosh pipes on previous bikes and quality has always been second to none. It was a little spendy but you get what you pay for (buy once, cry once).
