I don't have a clue about the KLR but I do have an assortment of shift levers over here. Maybe we can BEND one to fit. All depends on spline fit.

Any KLR guys out there to help.

R&R Racing

I picked up my FJR from Bob at R&R today. He had it ready on time and based on the estimate I got from my dealer (a dealer that I have a lot of faith in and as far as I know has never screwed me) saved me at least $100.

I'm glad to have a suspension guy in the local area and recommend him highly!!!!!

I'm dropping of my front forks for a rebuild with bob next week based on everyone's reviews. Seems like a great guy on the phone. I can't imagine the difference it's gonna make. I'm sure the 15 year old stock front end is tired.

After I get my forks back I'm gonna do a shakedown run in BW. If anyone of the new guys wants to join its gonna be a laid back ride. I'd be happy to show you around.

Saturday Morning Ride

I would be in for starting at the Hutton Unit (see post #2 for directions)...the earlier the better as far as beating the heat. Anybody else in?

Can I still be considered a n00b since I haven't ever started there before?
