How do you like Karoo 3's off-road? I have K60s but they still seem very loose in the backend. I'm a 50/50 rider and have way too many hairy situations for what has been reviewed as a great off-road option. On-road performance has been outstanding though. Finding the sweet spot with tire pressure may also be the saving grace for these K60s.

I added the AltRider skid plate and radiator guard.
Also the Tourtech handlebar risers.
Running the Continental knobbies right now. Not sure what I will replace the rear with when it's done.
I put the Kenda knobbies on my F650 and they really feel funny at slow speed on pavement. Don't inspire confidence in traction.

Hagon fork springs

Transformed the handling at relatively low cost. Best bang for buck so far.
Also fitted ricochet bash plate. Have not used it in anger. But looks good.

Wilbers, KÖS;Shindegen;

hi i have changed to a complete Wilbers (front and rear) and positioned the reservoir above the ABS unit.
A chain oiler of Koes and Shindegen regulator.
The Wilbers is excellent.
Greetings Torsten

Well I haven't really had a chance to use it in conditions it was intended for yet... but it seems like a quality piece so far.
