Just for future reference, what size and spacing gives the most horsepower?

This is a common misconception. Pinstripes have no impact on horsepower and have such a marginal impact on drag coefficient that it really isn't worth mentioning. They do have much to do with the illusion of sophistication, much like racing stripes only make a car look fast when it is standing still.

Whatever size BMW does not use, probably makes the most horsepower

Of course, the KLR has no pinstripes but does have 34 horsepower per cylinder.

Signals

Good evening Thomas:
I like the looks of those signals on your bike. Are they original KLR? Previous owners of my DRZ abused the signals and I may replace them.

I appreciate that, and I might still need them. I think only the top are done on mine. That is if they fit the bottom mounting points.

Speaking of KLR's, there is a 'decent looking 97 in Canton for $1,500 obo if anyone is looking. I thought about making an offer but I already did the KLR thing once and would rather try a DR650 if I go big bore Japanese thumper again.

You're welcome to try mine if you want. She's fairly long legged and stiff in the suspension now though.

Science, the bolts are the same for gen1 and 2. Next time you go to the lake house let me know, we can change them.
