KLR 650 Rear Sprocket Sorted.

It has taken a while now, but finally I have found someone who is making the 38 tooth rear sprocket for the KLR 650, I have had the 38 tooth rear sprocket before and with a 16 front it is great gearing for when traveling on the tar, makes the cruising speed smoother by keeping the taco around 3700rpm at 100kph.
 Like I said I have had the 38tooth sprocket before, so I thought I will buy another, well I must have brought the last 38t rear sprocket in OZ because everywhere I tried no one had one or could even get me one. After asking many companies and people in the bike industry only one mob followed up and searched around the world for me and that was Jeff from MetalGear, it has taken a couple of months, but Jeff has now put in a order with the company he found of 38 tooth rear sprockets that will be landing here in Australia by mid April, thanks for your efforts in getting this sorted Jeff.

Your a long time dead, so get out there and enjoy yourself while you still can :-) would loved to have been able to race vintage enduro bikes in Victoria, but sadly that as yet has not happened, so many blokes would have loved to be able to race, owell shit loads of us still have the memory's of racing enduro bikes back in the late 70's and 80's, time to move on to other things I guess :-) but if racing classes for vinduro bikes start then I will dust off my bike and be out there racing my old bike as that is what it was made for ( Racing )

The first time I came to your place on my KLR I was running a 38t rear, 16 / 38 is perfect for road travel and normal dirt roads, I will carry a 14 / 44 set as well as chain to suit for those harder going areas :-)

By the way it is your turn to head south  Grin   Afro
