Interesting, but you might remember that lock at the hubs on a 4WD is not a differential lock, it's a free-wheel device to avoid the drag from the differential. BTW is the Kawasaki KLT fitted with a differential or does it resort to a free-wheel simply to disengage one wheel while keeping the other driven normally (in a way similar to those Ural motorcycles with a drive-wheeled sidecar)?
