In fact I tried a little bit to bend mine closer to the stator cover to close up the gap. And from any pictures I've seen of the MSR XR650L lever installed on the KLX, the situation has been the sticks farther from the stator cover than stock.

Whatever the case, I found that it is much easier to shift now than with the OEM lever.
Ah, right. It's been a while since I tried that. You're right, the XR650L shift lever stuck out way too far and needed to be bent in. In any case it was unusable as stock, and I couldn't get it to work.

If the OEM XR650L shifter is as soft as the one on my XR250R, then it should be a piece of cake to bend.
