I now have another thing to add to my list of must carry with me!!
I took the KLR out today to meet my Dad (ssbarbich) at ThrottleWorx and then to ride to Highlands High to watch my neice swim. On the way to the School my shifter felt funny, kinda smushy when I was trying to make sure it was in first. Then I tried to shift into 2nd and I barely got my foot under the shifter. We got to the school and looked to see what the problem could be, and to my dismay, the shifter was breaking at the weld. Needless to say I had to call hubby to come get me because I didn't want to chance trying to ride it home! We got it home and I went to put it in 1st to ride it into the parking spot and plink, there went the shifter!!! Hubby had to weld it back together and now I am good to go.
Oh, and my Dad and I both thought about taking one of the shifters off of the his HD, but they are too straight and wouldn't work on the KLR!! It was a good idea though!!
I will be ordering another shifter to carry as a spare!!!
