Despite being a former KLR owner, I never could go 'that cheap' .

I'm a function first type of guy and I can't see a notable difference between these materials for it's intended purpose. that said, it's hard to justify a more expensive material without a reason why.

I'm sure the green vigilantes will be along shortly to virtual-lynch me

I think its a tossup but I want to actually see the dipped stainless. I like the somewhat harder metal and slightly thinner... I'm kinda on a crusade to cleanup handlebar/control litter...

Wicked Done!

Finally!
The "Dash-Lite" is done.

These are in medium gauge .09" Stainless Steel with a 'wash' finish that is dulled, perfect for painting or just use as-is. The fit is superb [finally]..

This part is reversible: can be mounted in upper or lower positions

Take a look.

Nice! Thank for making the mounting holes oblong as this touch goes along way in specific mount situations where you need 'just a bit' more room for this reason or another.

Now...

Cost and availability?

Or did I miss it?

Question Dash-Lite

Looks great!
I sent a PM for price but no response yet, so...
What's the price and how do we order one?
Will you make a (KTM) version out of Titanium also?
Maybe brass for those with pre '96 vintage DR's?
Aluminum for the weight watchers?

Thumb

FINALLy.
I built a EBAY listing, but I can deal with the bro's here either way. Just trying to be convenient:
EDIT: I removed the ebay link


If you want to skip ebay its .99 less... their fees are out of sight now between Ebay & Paypal. I'll take gold bullion, cash, paypal, M.O. or check.

Sorry to be so late responding to the PM's - we had to take care of a medical issue here that could not wait. getting a bit more normal now. These are ready to go. Guy on TT got the first one [i didn't think to memorialize it with a Serial #.. rats]

harness

Yes, to those who need to know, the stock wiring harness will reach these positions easily. Its got a nice connector with a spring clip.. just wrestle that clip and detach, set the thing wherever you want. I don't have a helper, so I do it one bolt at a time, tighten it a bit, move to the other bolt.

Somebody help us with screw ideas! the screws holding the original in the rubber thingy are like drywall screws... very strange. took me awhile to find something short that works. The easy way is to cutoff the stockers with a dremel blade/wheel. Otherwise, check bodywork screws at autoparts joints...
