I see this is a 2 pin blade style. Ahhh, that's the difference.

If the wall thickness is not sufficient you can also go down to a 9mm piston, bit more travel but easier clutch pull.
Thanks for the replies guys. I'll look into it when I get to Bishkek in a few days.

Lowers the temperature at which the fan kicks in.

It starts the cooling fan at 88C/190.4F instead of the stock 105C/221F.

Yes, please fill us in on how that tire works for you. I'll patiently wait a month or two for a report while you have a chance to abuse it and get some good feedback. Mainly rocks and sand I'm interested in.

I just finished installing my full akrapovic exhaust with carbon fiber shields!!! I used rtv copper gasket maker where the two parts of the header meet so I wont be able to test it until tomorrow when its fully cured. I was stumped for about 20 minutes trying to get the exhaust on the header and another 20 trying to get one of the header bolts off. I ended up removing the foily thingy that is in the slipon and with a little force managed to get it on and to get the nut off I disconnected the radiator so I could reach it. The exhaust is so tight on the header thst I dont think it even needs the clamp anymore. I am going to get the evo1 airbox lid to replace the stock snorkel. It already has the evo1 (akro) map and a k&n filter. The wife is gonna kill me if I don't stop farkling this thing.

Lol, I sold my KLR to get my 690 earlier this year. You've got to do what works for you!

Fan switch

On the move, no problem. Slower technical or in traffic my '12 get damn hot. It has never gone past 11 bars and the fan seems to bring it back down quickly but I noticed the other day a little coolant leaked past my rad cap (??) Gave the cap a little twist to tighten it up and will monitor. Likely when I shut the hot bike off the heat kept building without the benefit of the fan coming on. Seems to me having it run a bit cooler with the fan coming on lower would be a benefit. I know there was some debate about whether lower the operating temp was good or not but I think changing the switch doesn't result in the bike being taken out of it's operating temp range so I can't see the issue. Probably going to order the Kawi switch.
