I agree with Joe, I carry an extra lever but with my hand guards I probably don't need to. If I didn't have hand guards I'd use the Moose shorty levers, they don't stick out as far so there is a lesser chance of breaking them.
I broke my clutch lever one time. While sitting out "there", I was thinking "now what".
Though I don't recommend this for normal riding, I was able to shift without the clutch and made it back to the truck. When I got to a spot where I needed to be in neutral, I just turned the engine off, stopped, turned the key back on without starting, found neutral, started the engine back up, took aim of the direction I needed to head, dropped in 1st and off I went. I think you may get the idea. Main point is you can probably limp back without the lever if need be.
Brake lever is even easier, though I've not broken this one yet. Rear brake is nice to have eh!

I bought a KLR650 as my first bike, loaded it up, and moved down Baja and across mainland Mexico for six months. I am traveling indefinitely, ideally all the way to Argentina if the pandemic allows for it eventually, while working remotely from my laptop. The KLR was a great first...
Hi everyone, I'm looking at tank bags and need some advice. If you are using a tank bag and it's working great, what is it? I get into some gnarly stuff so it needs to be really secure. A phone pocket on top with a clear window would be great also. TIA
