Done, for now. I will get into to engine to fix e-start and piston after new year.

I didn't do a long ride on it, but everything seems to be 100%. My rear fender is solid as a rock, no more floppy floppy. Steering, wheel and swingarm bearings are 100%. Broken stuff replaced. I'm stoked. It hasn't looked this sharp in a long time.

Get yourself a set of these for the winter. Currently $15.99 at Rocky Mountain. Fitment is acceptable: I installed them right over my bark busters and wire-tied them on. I rode for about 2 hours in the rain with them today and they kept my hands dry and warm the entire time. Fairly durable, too. Held up after many falls over the last two days. My clutch lever did poke a hole through the left one in a fall but mainly because I ride with my levers low and they are cut shorter than stock (well, broken off and filed down). A little intrusive if you are a stand-up rider but you get used to it. They seem perfect for sit-down riders.

I don't see the tool bag, you gonna remount or stiffen the subframe or use a waist fanny pack to carry stuff?

The failure of the subframe was due to a couple things. One was the fact that I didn't reassemble everything correctly when I was installing blinkers - they have since been removed. The other was the fact that my oversize heavy tool bag was in the fender bag. So I may install another fender bag, but I won't be carrying any too heavy in it.

I think I'll getting a new Camelbak system that has some storage for a tool pouch. I have my eye on one of these.

I just bought the KLIM Nac Pack ....

It was very hard to splurge on this item,
but as a recovering KLR owner I was able to push through and click the purchase button.

My son has the very same and he spent last year traveling/hiking Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, and Thailand with it. You can't go wrong... Highly recommended!
