This is my 3rd dl1k, won't go into the details of WHY I've been through 2 already but... I tried out a KLR and hated riding in the slow lane for my 80 mk r.t. commute.
The bike ('04) I have now is stripstock. The other 2 had exhaust, one had a PC on it too.
I want the ultimate suspension. Is there a AMAZING upgrade that will smooth out the ride on wash board / pothole dirt roads? The bikes are rattling beasts on dirt. Is Murphs Kit the way to go.??
Had Holeshot & Staintune. Do I need a P.C. for Holeshot? Am I really going to gain fuel economy and H.P. by ditching my stock? Staintune are my fav. but double the cost of H.S.
I want to avoid P.C., the one strom it was on got terrible MPG and never really ran super fine. My stock '04 is getting 37mpg ( the best of the 3 I've owned) with aggressive riding (fast) and has a super minor stumble very rarely (3 times) @ 3k rpm.
Thank-you for your time and opinions.
