For those of you who have used the extended fuel screw, how well does it work for you? At what elevation level do you start playing with it. Inquiring minds want to know.

The trick is to buy your bike from a certified KLRista.

Ricor suspension.

Mostly other people tell me how it does.

I just ride, when they catch up it goes like this:

You were movin' out back there...Was I?

I did a video, the person watching said "wow that was really washboarded", me: "was it?"

Honest.

Runnin' like a champ, thanks! I've got about 4K on the 685 kit, and it's smooth, pulls better, and makes me grin. Can't ask for much more than that.

There's no replacement for displacement... and lighter pistons.

Ah, $215.00. Yeah, that's what I thought. I just wanted to know exactly how much I saved by coming up with my own DIY solution for keeping my soft bags off the pipe.
My savings was $212.

Yhea but that doesn't look like much of a crash bar now does it, or should I say "wow what a great $3 crashbar"

Not really. The '08 version will not break.

It is still worth doing, but there is absolutely no urgency to it. The way the stock quadrant is indexed on the shaft, you will get maybe one adjustment out of the stock spring. A shorter spring may or may not give you any more. The replacement from Eagle Eng. is indexed to give a greater range of adjustment. It also fits the shaft better, for what that is worth.
