First:
have fun on your KLR, you've definately simplified by going that way. And I have an 1150 GS and an F650 Dakar. I'm in your neck of the woods. Feel free to PM me if you ever want to go check out Windigo or ride the Trans-Taiga or James Bay.


Second:
This is complete and shameful hogshyte.

An OEM KLR clutch lever for, say, a 2004 KLR 650 from Bike Bandit
(you have to look under Kawasaki, then ROAD bikes, because it's not listed in the DIRT section)

An aftermarket lever for the F650 can be found for under 8 USD. But thanks for the hyperbole.
