Hi guys,

I played Metal Butcher today and did the Low Buck Exhaust Mod. A ton of snow today so no chance to ride it, but it sure sounds good!

I think it is just where I stood with the camera. It is not much louder though. Just a deeper note.

We need a model-specific thread index.
Wow. That was so much easier than simply answering the guys question.

I recently put on some Continental Escapes. I switched from the more dirt oriented TKC80's which served me well. The Escapes have felt really good on the pavement and done really well on gravel. Sand is a little shakier than the TKC's, but that's to be expected. The pavement handling of the Escapes is really nice.

Yes it is. Questions like that are essentially rhetorical.

How much snow did you get? That's a bummer for this time of year uh. Here in New Brunswick, there is no snow left but temperature are not good enough to really put on some serious mileage on my KLR. By the way, I did this mod a few years ago and I really like the sound compared to the tweeter.

The tank will fit, but your klr tank shrouds will not attach to it. The tabs are missing on the tengai tank. The tengai tank has tabs in a different location for the tengai plastics.

The seat might not fit. Tengai pics I've seen make it look a little different. I'm not sure about the seat, but I'm certain about the tank because I've tried it.

As per the exhaust mod:
I am happy to be rid of the tweet, but after a coworker started his KLX250 with aftermarket pipe next to me last week, I have been jonesing for something tuned. Stupid 250 sounded tuffer than my 650.

Question Fork Brace? - HT or Eagle Mikes?

I'm a heavy rider, about 275 pounds. I am wondering if a fork brace would be a useful addition for street riding.

If a fork brace would improve the street riding handling on mountain roads, which one is best?

Happy Trails or Eagle Mikes both sell fork braces. Anyone have experience with either product?

Thanks

Seat is the same for all A series bikes.

Tank is different because the fairing attaches in different location.

We got 6 inches or so, but it is gone now and will be 20 celcius today. Typical Alberta Spring Weather.

I have the Eagle Mike fork brace. Can't say I noticed a big difference... and I'm not a light guy either, and I've got an "adventure" sidecar (DMC Enduro) on my KLR. It's a nice piece of kit - very nicely machined/engineered. I ordered mine directly from Eagle Mike's website.
