Yeah they might sheer off on a tumble. My attitude is that if they break they break. I will eventually be getting proper motocross style bars, but for now they work.

Thanks Jun. I'm glad the wheel got there safely. Let me know how it goes. What model is it starting as?
EDIT: I'm guessing it was an "R" as well based on the tri spokes.

KLR 650 spring on KLR 600?

My klr 600 rear end bottoms out far too easily so I would like to beef it up.
My first choice would be to get a heavier spring. Does anyone know if the 650 spring fits the 600?
