Front fender brace for Gen 2.

I have read about the front fender being a bit of an issue at hi-way speeds, is this actually something that should be taken care of or is it one of those "Do it if you want, but don't really need it mods"

I rate it as one of the "do it if you want" mods... I ride lots of highway in all kinds of wind and I don't feel that it's necessary to have a fender brace. I ride a gen 2 as well.

Your choice

I think its one of those "if you want deals". That being said I tip the scales at 330 and ride 70 miles round trip when I ride to work and have no idea why you would need that brace myself. I think the KLR is subject to the "You have got to make this mod" deal also. Some of them are great ideas and some not so much. HOWEVER...I am all about the farkles also. Its just fun. If your brain thinks its worth it it just might be.
