My son was bleeding badly from a cut to his foot one time and i had to get home from Rosslyn to Doornpoort in a hurry. 16 T front and 43 back sprocket. Fugly once again did not let me down as @ some stage i passed a some traffic at what looked like 167. Did not bother to check revs. That was the fastest i had ever gone exept for skydiving, bungy jumping, and airline flying

to get back to "the wobble" issue . . .
I jumped on "Prosack" yesterday and headed off to meet a few friends to ride to the The Vaal. In a rush to get to the rendevouz point en-route I chose to cut time and went via N1/N12 (I very seldom go highway on any bike) and abused the 'ol KLR a bit for a good 20kms or so. Not sure about the top-end 'cause I was more concerned with a similar wobble I experienced for the first time. Maybe because it was the first time I rode it that hard? At Xavier I headed for the first filling station. After a quick examination I found both front and rear to be 1 bar only. With that fixed I headed back onto the N12, gave full throttle and voila!! Wobble gone!
So maybe there are more causes than just the two so far?? Who knows.
Now, to the speed issue...
This is a KLR, not a GTi. For speed, get a Busa. :laugh:
Safe riding.

groenie, net vir curiosity, hoe verander jou brandstof verbruik met die 685 kit, is dit BAIE swaarder op sous?
ek glo daar sal 'n verskil wees, weet net nie hoe drasties nie....

Hy is bietjie swaarder, maar op ons Desember trip was hy die ligste van die 3 KLR's. Ek het 19.5 km/l gekry, die ander Fugly so 13 - 14 en die new shape so 17.
