Clutch arm

Glad to hear you like the new modded clutch arm. One customer quoted me. " It lightens up the the clutch pull by about 30% and makes he friction zone a mile wide." I modded the hell out of my own KLR and this is still the best bang for the buck mod I have. 2HE

I'll try to keep two or three of the modded arm on hand. They have been a very good seller. Thanks for the complements. 2HE

One happy customer

Not being a skilled welder, I thought I would have to forego this mod. Twinheadlighternie has a great product. It has really helped my slow speed maneuvering -- especially while commuting. I highly recommend this mod to anyone who wants more control of their bike.

KLRCary (RIP) did this for me when I did my 705 upgrade years ago. I got one of the early kits, and Cary allowed for the increased power possibly overcoming the stock clutch springs. He suggested the heavy duty clutch springs and did this mod to compensate for the stiffer pull.

I highly recommend this mod, whether you have stock or heavy duty clutch springs. It just make it work better. Price is very reasonable, too.

Good luck!

Laugh Happy customer!

Installed (easy) this 2HE KLR650 clutch arm mod in my 2011 KLR650 and is U-N-B-E-L-I-E-V-A-B-L-E, TOTALLY EFORTLESS NOW!!!!
Many thanks Ernie, Super Great!, Full Recomended!, Happy customer!

Also, I filled the handle bar full of copper plated BB shot ($14 Wartmart or Bass-Pros; 6k count, used around half), then I put the bar end back so it compressed the shot. Results? 2/3 less vibes @ the handlebar!!!

Clutch arm mod.

Hi Guys,
Thanks for the complements on the clutch arm mod. (yes it is really that good if I do say so myself) I started out with 3 modded arms and have been swaping them back for the stock core arms as I go. The turnaround has left a touch of a lag in my ability to keep up with the demand. If any of the inmates out there have a stock clutch arm they would like to sell me outright feel free to give me a shout. It's best to reach me by e-mail at: dakotabeemer@hotmail.com
Thanks. Ernie

This is a good Bang for your buck. Installed today, makes a big difference in the pull. I was amazed at how it softens the release and makes taking off a lot easier. It helps out a lot in rough ground. Thanks a lot Ernie. I am very pleased with my purchase. I will ship out the stock arm tomorrow, Thanks Joe
