One of the best upgrades you can do to the KLR is trading it in for a DR...

Not related to the build, but I was able to plasti dip my tank matte gray to try and match my plastics.. It's not too close, but better then black. I might do all the plastics in this color.



Plastic dip claims its chemical resistant, Ill see how it holds up to fumes.

Great thread and discussion. Thanks for taking the time to document and post your build.

Since there are apparently engine builders out there that may prefer different end gaps, I would like to see this package of piston, rings and cylinder come with the rings set to the MINIMUM gap that would not cause damage to the engine. That way, it would be a drop in package for us less than professional mechanics. Yes, this might cost a little more but it would make the package more attractive to the novice mechanic.

If not that, there should be a notice prominently displayed that the ring gap MUST be set before final assembly.

Deleted my post, it adds no value.

the guy at procycle has obviously been a stand-up guy in this instance.... why don't all you dorks leave him alone, and figure out that downside of wrenching is on you?.... why don't you find some insurance company to cover your arse's when ever you start a project?... just look online...

and that tank looks pretty good, by the way.... might have to try that one....

Christalmighty...!

If you are that much of a novice, then I highly, highly recommend you stay away from the inside of any motor. The ring end-gap is one of the most basic procedures of any engine build.

What's next, disclaimers about cylinder head torque, piston ring spacing, proper cam timing, RPM during new cam break-in, etcetera...?

Wow

Any updates on fuel consumption? Or are the two up wheelies still maintaining priority?
