Thanks, I had this Allen key for a few years now and it served me well, don't know the make or origin of it

I bought a new one from the best tool making company in Slovenia (Unior). I will do my best to get the bolts out before I have to use an open flame on the bike with a full gas tank

Well it took me long enought to get this thing done. SO finaly I have mounted Renthal Dakar High bars to my KLE. The bike put up a fight, but in the end I managed to get it sorted (almost).

1. Old bars comming off:


2. Bars side by side (more one over the other )


3. Test fit to mark where the hole for throttle controls will be drilled


4. 5mm hole drilled, though Renthal does't suggest drilling


5. Almost done. I need to buy 2 bolts for handguards (don't know why the pic is so blury, will post a beeter one in the comming days)


Word of warning for all who want to use Renthal grips, they are a bit to short for throttle side:


Stock cables are long enough, but need a bit of rerouting to prevent binding. I did a few laps in front of the garage and it feels great, but will have to wait a while for proper test as ther is still snow outside. More pictures to follow as sonn as I get those 2 bolts I am missing.
