If your have bought an EBC rotor, I stongly suggest that you use neither the EBC HH nor the Kawa stock HH pads. While stopping the bike well, they score the rotor badly. Get the Galpher Green pads.

PO bent my handlebars, so now on the look for some new ones. I already have the Rox 2" pivoting adjustable risers, but would like just a little more height for standing up (6'1" with 34" inseam). Thinking the Protaper SE in ATV High mentioned above. Choke already not an issue as picked up one of those cable eliminator units. How about clutch and throttle cables -- will I need longer ones or are they long enough or able to be relocated sufficiently? Other recommended options for tall bars with the Rox risers or issues I should be considering?

edit: is this the correct stock bar measurement (found on bigcee)
width: 31.9"
rise: 3"
pull back: 3.9"

The ProTaper ATV Mid has 5.9" rise, ATV High 6.3" rise.

Are you using 7/8 or 1 1/8 bars?
You may already know,but an ATV hi bar in 7/8' is different than an ATV hi bar in 1 1/8',and all the different bends are like that.
I ran a ATV HI Fat Pro Taper 1 1/8 bar with 2" Rox risers on a 2003 KLR I used to have,and I liked that set up alot,and I think the 7/8' version is even taller.

I didn't know the 7/8" vs 1 1/8" difference. Thanks.

Good question. My Rox risers are designed to fit fat bars and have the 7/8" insert for the stock bars, which are on there now. I've never really looked at the fat bars closely. It looks like the bars are fat at the clamps and narrow to 7/8 so all the stock perches, etc fit. Is this correct? Do have Tusk DFlex handguards, so would need the big bar adapter ($17).

Correct, all the bars narrow to 7/8 at the controls.
Also, fat bars don't use or need a crossbar, but all 7/8 bars do.

IIRC the Raptor bars in 1 1/8 are nearly identical to the ATV high in 7/8.

I will for sure. For the little I have messed around with it (stupid snow), I love it. I can only imagine what it will be like really riding with it. Dialing it in was....um.....interesting. My shin is healing nicely though. I love my bike, but damn it is tall, and a lot to handle when things go pear shaped.

Just reroute the cables, wires, and stuff. It should work with stock cables, bars, and hose, mine did.

Gateway BMW is in St. Louis, Mo. my home town. My sister and her boyfriend, both KLR owners, sent me that. I bet you could call them and buy one over the phone.

GAS GUY: "Yeah, I just want one of those Friends don't let friends ride KLR's stickers mailed to me please."

Gateway parts counter guy: "WTF?"

Why the apostrophe and the capital S?

Correct pluralisation is "KLRs".
