Thank you. It seems a little weird that they all stick up by various amounts -- not sure why, maybe slight differences in design each year(?). I have put several hundred miles on since I noticed this and it seems to be just fine, so I will not worry and will just continue to ride. I really appreciate the feedback as this is my first KLR and I have no idea what the normal condition is for many of the components.
