Did the tent work out okay?

KLR Front Fork Assembly

So, a few weeks back I had a slight encounter with a tree on the 09 KLR and after doing the usual loosen triple tree bolts and work back and forth, I got things relatively straight, but still had that annoying slight handlebar tweak to one side. After checking front assembly parts pricing ($250 for a fork tube, $450 for a lower triple tree) on a whim I hit the Ebay site and stumbled upon a complete 2012 KLR front fork assembly with only 848 miles on it for $300. Sounded like a no brainer solution, so bought it, installed it and Humpty Dumpty is back together again with everything 100 % right. I am not sure what might be out of wacke on the old fork, and not wanting to get into a parts changing mode, bottom line is I have some front end parts for an 08 and later KLR should an inmate need something on the cheap.

You could put this front end on your BMW and get one of those KLR - BMW stickers to make it official

Blasphemy...I'd rather make it better not rattle and break. Who knows the bike may start heading for trees

That's fantastic Kevin! Can't wait to see the rest of your pictures and the stories to accompany them once you get time to put it all together.
