I read on some other sites that other guy have the same problem so I bought a complete used front brake system off ebay from a DR650. I was going to put the master cyl. and the line on but thought I would try the master cyl. first. after bleeding the system I now have 100% better feel in the handle and alot more stoping power. I can lock the front wheel up on dry black top. The 650 banjo bolt also has alot bigger hole in it. Hope this helps. Alan
My KLR never went fast enough to need a front brake.
