If you follow our motorcycle exploits on Expedition Portal and within the pages of Overland Journal, you’re probably aware of our fondness for the Kawasaki KLR. As a team, we’ve ridden this unassuming motorcycle everywhere from the wilds of Alaska, to the depths of Death Valley, and even the high summits of Ecuador. We even have our own KLR in our quiver of bikes. As ardent advocates of the plucky KLR, we recognize it benefits from a few carefully selected accessories. Touratech has recently expanded their catalog of accessories made specifically for the KLR, and we think this will only bolster the bike’s already impressive popularity.
Now it’s possible to fine tune your KLR with progressive fork springs, a newly developed rear shock unit, skid plate, bar risers, light guards, and a host of other accessories including luggage racks ready to accept their Zega hard cases.
You can find all of the accessories now available for the KLR on the Touratech USA website [HERE].
Watch the Touratech video to get their take on the KLR:
The new Zega Mundo panniers are a more affordable alternative to the Zega Pro panniers without sacrificing durability or ease of use.
As capable as it is in the dirt, it benefits greatly from added protection. The new skid plate in particular is a must-have for those venturing into the dirt.
Although the 2015 model has a much improved rear suspension system, it still is not as refined as Touratech’s new shock unit with external adjustments within easy reach. The new bar risers correct the bar height which is often too low for most riders.
