Standing

Hi I have 2015 klr and finding standing up riding up hill is hard to do without a lot of struggle.
I lean further forward and my bars are positioned correctly but I find it hard to hold on. What am I doing wrong
Ps changing gears is impossible
Cheers

You're doing it wrong - KLR's aren't made for going up hills.

We can have a yak about it all on 7th if you like. Some basic skills are all you need.
Plenty of helpful folks to dish out the pearls of wisdom!

You got to have the gear lever set at a height where it works when you sit, or when you stand.
Either, either, one or the other will be a compromise.
I like pivot pegs for when I stand.

Strummer will set you straight.

after having a KLR in the early days, if you are average height and not some 5 ft Japanese midget you will need bar risers. however wait until after the 7th.

Assume the attack position, but with one small difference, point your bum backwards so it rests on the milk crate.

Laugh there's always a milkcrate...

The milkcrate... the KLR racers secret weapon... setgz pegz, pivot pegs... pfffft...

A good ol' milkcrate strapped on the back and the "a la crumpet attack position" is the answer for sure...
