Do you find that water shoots up from back of front wheel?
I have a lowered front fender on fork brace...but went with fender from Acerbis with longer back.

Totally. If you look closely (in the photo above) you will see that I have the back half of a full size acerbis fender mounted in the original (upper) fender spot, exactly for that reason. You'll see the black and white round sticker on it and the Acerbis logo below that.

Here's a photo from yesterday showing just how much the low acerbis fender actually lets fling up (but, I trimmed the fender off above the vents in the back too).





here's a better photo of the side profile of the low fender, just showing how much I trimmed off the front and back from the original.

That mod really looks great!

I went out for a nice ride before it warmed up this morning. Nice and cool (66F) when I left the house just after 8:00AM. My goal was to ride the Sunrise Highway and be home before 10:30AM for breakfast, but I got distracted by a dirt road. I managed to make it home before 11:00AM (and more importantly, before the heat!) with ~85 miles of riding, including some difficulties:


Coming down the hill before this spot you can't even see that there is a ditch in the middle of the trail. Fortunately my front wheel missed it, but the rear slid right into it while trying to put down power to head up the next hill. Oops.


A nice, controlled dirt nap. There was no way I was going to actually lift the KLR out of the ditch, so I shut off the fuel and laid it on its side then pivoted it around on the crash bars. I didn't even scratch the plastics!


On the way back I stopped at a mom & pop coffee shop and saw this and figured it was appropriate for the day's activities. Not a bad way to start my day!

A place called Chain Lakes in Alberta. Lots of soft gravel/sand road to get here. The stock tires are not too reassuring. Had to stand pretty much the whole way and steer with the pegs and throttle.

Not the most professional exit but after a 400 k day and 40 klms of soft sand, not so bad.

Thanks Dougo, top effort. I'd have drowned it at the rocky creek crossing.

Is that the stock rear rim or did you get it from Woody's also? I like the 19" front.

I am back to thinking I want another (this would be my 3rd) KLR. Both my old one were 05's IIRC. I went the higher end route the past few years with KTM 640's and Husky 610's in dirt and supermoto form and grew tired of the tickets and lack of dealer locations near me.

Anyway I noticed the 2012-current looks MUCH better with blacked out components, Still the same bike for the past 30 years other than the facelifts in recent history. I can get a new '12 for $5500, seems silly not to just buy new with these bikes. No real intentions to farkle this one to death right off the bat, just a skid and doohicky if that's still an issue (need to get current on the KiLleR's again)

I need to ride one of these pigs again before I commit. Damn they are heavy and gutless.
