General Information

Green, of course
Born in Thailand in 2015, and came to America to find fun and fortune. I gave it a good home, but I had to move on. I will always remember this bike fondly, and as the machine that got me back onto a motorcycle. Goodbye buddy, I will miss you!
2015 Kawasaki KLE650 (Green, of course)


Watt-Man Thermo-Bob: I was a little skeptical, but read the entire description of how the Kawasaki KLR/KLE cooling system works, and figured that this mod might be worth the money. Holeeee-cow! No, it doesn't make the bike faster/more stable/better handling/cooler. What it does do is make my bike noticeably smoother at off-idle (where the throttle spends most of it's time when just "cruising around") when the temperature is sub 75 degrees F. This system allows the bike to run just a bit hotter, but more importantly at a MUCH more consistent temp. More consistent running temp, means more consistent fueling (I guess?). Also I notice the bike shifting smoother, which I suppose is due to the slightly higher and more consistent oil temperature. All told, a VERY WELL SPENT $130.00 dollars!!!!
Shad SH36 pillions on 3-P mounting system. A little wide when mounted, but overall a very nice pillion system. Though I would not recommend this system for guys who ride tight trails.
Shad SH40C top box and mounting kit. Very nice, not a lot of money, and will hold one standard full-face helmet.
Cheap eBay DR 650 foot pegs: had to drill out the mounting holes and file down the outside mounting surfaces to make 'em fit, but they are aces otherwise!
Core Tech 2.0 magnetic tank bag: a well made, functional bag. Could be shaped a little better for the slope of the tank, but it's universal fit, so....
Bike Master heated grips: awesome mod! $8.00 BikeMaster 12v accessory plug. Using a relay I took from the fuse box of a Homda car, I was able to get this 8 dollar accessory to fit and work just as well as the $85.00 Kawasaki OEM accessory plug (and without spending the 15 bucks on the OEM relay). Looks just as good as factory!
