Also, the turn signal beeper is so loud it made me jump when I was checking that the signals functioned (I'm sure I can disconnect this).

Reference the stage 1 jet kit, the seller said he thought it was a Dyno jet kit, but the label on it was Studebaker, so he wasn't sure what manufacturer the kit was.

My main concern about the odometer was resale value. Not that I plan on selling it anytime soon, but I guess I worry other potential buyers would be as trusting as I am. I guess I'm being silly because if you guys don't think it is a big deal, than most potential buyers wouldn't either.

I'll let you know how it all turns out. My mechanic isn't open until Tuesday, so if it works out I'll know Tuesday night.

Studebaker kit is a repackaged DJ kit. You don't buy bikes for resale value. You buy them to ride and enjoy. Entry price for a KLR is very low. If you managed to rack up 75K miles next couple yrs you'd still get $1500 for it. $ per mile usage is very very very low. Buy it, do the basic hit items for GenII's, maintain it with records and just ride!
