Anyone heard of or had experience with "Ride On tire balancer and sealant" or similar products? Is it worth the $20 or just a gimmick?
Thanks

I did the same thing and wrecked the new seal getting it back out again. I didn't have two so I stuck the old one (which had been leaking) back in and it hasn't leaked for the last two years!

Sounds about right to me. The KLR runs fairly cool especially with cool air temps. That's why a lot of people believe that the thermo-bob is an important mod.

+10
All that oil everywhere, missing important bolts etc. I wouldn't even think about it unless it was very cheap - and $3400 is not very cheap for a KLR even up here in the great wet north.

Or, if you find a shop that sells whitewater kayaking or rafting gear, they'll definitely sell cam straps. NRS is one company that makes them - check nrs.com.
