Thanks! Mine looks just like that. I was worried about that long "tail". I thought somehow I was supposed to tuck it into the fatter area with the spring.

I finally got my filter out of the box today and it is long and folded over unlike all the pictures I have seen. Am I supposed to tuck the length in the inner part or have I gotten the wrong thing?

I think MSR and Moose both make one for the KLR so I will check with them. I'm glad I'm not the only one that feels that way about the KTM plate.

Esteban, great pictures. BTW what skidplate is that on the orange bike? I have a 625 and the KTM skidplate is too narrow and too thin. That looks more like what I need.
