This kit fits all years of the KLR600 and KLR650, but is directed at the 2022 KLR as the bike does not have a coolant temperature gauge from the factory. This kit utilizes a modified Thermo-Bob 2 called the "2A", which is machined differently to add a port for a temperature gauge. The kit includes a Trail Tech digital temperature gauge plus a drilling template to mount it properly on your 2022’s dashboard, just below the factory instrument panel. It also includes black, stainless attachment hardware for a professional look that mimics the factory layout.

The Thermo-Bob is a machined, hard-anodized aluminum external thermostat with a coolant bypass. It allows coolant to bypass the radiator during warm-up, speeding warm-up and eliminating the surges of cold coolant year-round. It also raises the operating temperature at the top of the cylinder to 195°F from 158°F… more importantly, it raises the operating temperature at the bottom of the cylinder to 185°F from downright cold. It should eliminate the out-of-round cylinders that are common to the KLR as it ages which usually results in increased oil consumption.
  • The Thermo-Bob 2 eliminates the inconsistent engine temperature prevalent on the KLR650.
  • Allows the engine to maintain a consistent 195 degree operating temperature for better performance and longer engine life.
  • Easy installation.
