A whole lot of them. I didn't think my KLR was worthy of that much cash so I just put a heavier spring on the stock shock. :yelrotflmao

Im not married, so it would be either that shock or beer.




I can always swap it to a new KLR if I destroy this one. I was planning to test it out today, but four stupid little well nuts in the headlight cowling didnt want to be used a second time so now I have to order these fuckers at $5ea before I can ride it again. :wall

FWIW I put a used Hagon on my DR650. That was the best money I spent on the bike.

I did the front end first and hated it. Was very close to selling those parts off when I decided to pull the trigger on the used shock.

I've got one on mine along with springs and emulators in the front forks. It made a huge difference. I'm still debating about a fork brace. Mainly because I have the 10 gal tank and the extra weight when full is noticeable on the interstate.

I need to do something with the front. Messing with the forks scares me, but I has to be worked on. Just not sure what I want to do to it.

Dropping in new springs, DDC's, Intimators, etc and/or changing oil is pretty easy.

I bought the Fork Solution kit from Pro-Cycle and am very happy with it. Like I said earlier, it wasn't ideal until I also did the shock.

my left engine cover came in the mail today from Partzilla.... :Clap it looks great but now the problem is it's the only part on the bike with the factory decals. one of the POs had removed all the other decals. guess i gotta order a decal sheet now.
