As for the suspension on our KLRs, I have a fully modded, revalved, remote reservoir STOCH rear shock on mine(don't ask, I can't get another one done, it was a special favor from a buddy who has in's with factory race teams etc) and the front has stock forks with progressive springs and intimidators, I also added an extra inch in spacer length to make them stiffer for my liking. The bike performs extremely well for my style of riding, 95% street with some two track adventures. It will ride over washboard roads with ease....I'm a 205lb 6" man.....who loves adventure riding over off road riding.....Damn this sounds like a personal add Just so you know what it's set up for.
Yes the KLR was made with a light 165lb rider in mind, why I can't figure out.....maybe they never thought they would export them?
So, if you want to get the most from your bike, maybe you should upgrade the suspension to suit your needs.
