Replace that cheesy undersized stock sub-frame hardware now! Take this seriously!
Did you know? Extreme pressure is generated by the weight of anything bolted in (battery, airbox) bolted on (luggage, rear rack, exhaust) or sitting on (rider, passenger) the sub-frame of your Kawasaki KLR 650. This pressure is exerted onto a total of four low-grade and undersized 8mm bolts and they just can't take it.
This is typically how it goes...
The first of two upper sub-frame bolts breaks beneath you and you don't know it - yet.
ALL the stress that was shared by these two bolts is now transferred the second bolt which quickly fails.
If you're lucky, the sub-frame now pivots backward on the two remaining lower bolts pulling apart the wiring harness, battery cables, exhaust system and carburetor airbox boot in the process. It is an incredibly arduous job to repair these sheared off bolts in the field. We've been there done that!
If you're not lucky, the sub-frame collapses entirely with catastrophic results. If that wasn't enough you now have four bolts to repair!
Put this on your must do list!
