Trim radiator tabs on side (cut
square to match radiator)

Fuel transfer – fuel splashes over with braking & acceleration (same as Honda CRF450 x
21L). Customers prefer not to have the
complications of a lift pump – extensive testing has been done.
KLX vs KLR
It is much easier to list what is the same, because the list is
Two version street and dirt. The C model is the street version. Differences: Frame, perimeter vs
backbone type. Stronger and lighter. Suspension, longer and bigger. 43mm usd forks. Motor: They
share some internal parts but the KLX has a different head for more flow, different case and a gear
The negatives: 3.2 gal fuel tank, little element protection. No aftermarket. Aceribis used to make
a 5gal tank but are rare. They just made a special production of 15 red tanks that were presold.
The R tank is available in green but won't easily fit the C. Any aftermarket bar fitted windshield
will give protection.
I own a 95 C model and love it. Got the 5 gal tank. Maier windscreen, modded the seat for comfort
and would take it anywhere. Best I can tell by comparing dyno reports, the C makes about 6 more rw
hp than the KLR and responds very well to carb and airbox mods. 11 and 10 inches of suspension
travel. As far as height I don't think they are any taller than a KLR but KLR lowering links and
raising the fork tubes will lower it. The listed weights for both is a lie. Ready to run the KLX
weighs about 375 and a KLR 400+lbs.
