Holy. Crap.

On a recommendation from ghostrider, I finally decided to buy the Eagle Mike fork brace for my KLR650 - and it's like a different motorcycle.

Anybody who's ridden a KLR on the freeway knows that the handlebars shake like a chihuahua in winter. It's kind of terrifying, really.

I put on a more aerodynamic fender last year and it helped a little, but the EM fork brace FIXED it. Riding at 65-75 is now actually comfortable and enjoyable.

Yay!!!

If you think a klr is bad try a gs500 some time 80 mph felt it was shaking off parts

On the KLR you could literally watch the spindly legs flex when cornering hard without the brace.

A fork brace is gonna be a BIG benefit on most any Dual Sport with those long travel fork legs/tubes. The brace attached to the legs just above the front tire enough for stone/debris clearance is best. Now... Upside down forks....different story on those & usually not as needed a mod cuz the upside down legs provide most all the stiffness needed.
