I've farkled my KLR about average for what I've seen here, and by far my favorite device has been my Garmin Quest GPS.
I just used a switch with HI/LOW/OFF rated for twenty amps. My first kit came with a 10 amp switch that melted into goo. The low setting is all I seem to need but the high setting does heat up faster.(they really do make a big difference.)klrbigdog, on the hot grips, do you use a switch or rheostat temp control.
I rode in to work today, 34 degree f, I need heat. All I see listed in Parts Unltd is hi/lo/off switch type. where do I find a rheostat. (Ithink that spelling is wrong)
Thanks for your time
Most I've seen are mounted in front of the lower portion of the engine, so it's not blocking much airflow to the important item, the radiator..No concerns with covering the air flow to the engine with all of those ABS tubes?
Gotta make it run hotter.
You don't think airflow over the motor plays any factor in cooling?Most I've seen are mounted in front of the lower portion of the engine, so it's not blocking much airflow to the important item, the radiator..
Speaking of that, although it sounds weird, I actually get a cooler engine when I run my tank paniers. It must be gathering and forcing more air through the radiator, even though it blocks the rear vent on the side pannel.
