    Best Dual Sport

    i have a 93 KLX650 thats great for trail riding and can cruise down freeway at 75 mpr and had front forks revavled so if i hit some thing hard offroad it can handle it. my problem is i try riding it with my friends who ride 450 so yea its heavy but for trials and some good riding my KLX is great. and beind a 93 it doesnt have all the plastics the KLR has. so it is easy to maintian. but im selling it so i can keepup with my buddies. goingt to start doing stuff like MOAB utah and Mojave trail. so i need something lighter.

    Renthal bowed bar / Scotts Damper

    i just put a DBR dampner on a WR with renthal bars and its no prob, because u have the clamps that hold it on can move after u bend crossbar. PS i have a press so it made it easy u just have to go slow and not ruch it.
