What covers are you people using. I work hard on keeping my KLR looking nice and want to protect it since it will be living outside year round. So What bike covers and size do you use?

I'm under a carport but have been using the wally world large cover that was on my harley. I do a scotchguard camp type waterproof spray on everything which will also help with UV rays which is the biggest factor in breaking down the water proofness of things.

Sorry, no help here. Mine's in the garage most of the time; otherwise it just gets wet.
I tried a 'cover" from JCWhitney, but it was a waste of time and money. Bike got just as wet as if left out.

After 9 years, just about all my damage has been get off-related, and not weather related.

"Best" BILT cover from Cycle Gear; unless you intend to pack it, I'd recommend a LARGE size.

Absolutely guaranteed by Cycle Gear; exchanges/refunds without trauma.

Cover shredded in tornado or hurricane? Probably not warrantied under these, "Acts of God." Otherwise, satisfaction guaranteed.

Ask your "associate" about exchange/replacement/refund policy.

If you want to go, "first class," consider SPEEDWAY shelters. A medium will cover a KLR650, but a large would be more convenient and useful. Basically, a steel tubular frame provides a skeletal base for a fabric cover; a mini-garage, more-or-less (I use one).

Will post a picture, or . . . check out the manufacturer's website:

https://www.speedwayshelters.com/

CAVEAT: I did NOT receive one of the lovely ladies shown on the website with my shelter.

Here's a trade show demo:


My experience: SPEEDWAY shelters work as advertised. (I now have a later model than shown in the video clip; has convex steel tubing on "roof" as a countermeasure to snow loading; also, fabric durability and waterproofing improved.)

Thanks Damocles!
Wish I could afford that Speedway shelter...Putting that on my Christmas wish list :) Good to know the Bilt cover is guaranteed by CycleGear since I have a store pretty close to me.
