DPelletier I don't like fork braces, but my riding is "offroad centric". I find my Cogent DDC's and springs do a great job of stiffening up the suspension without the need for an external brace. YMMV

JasonK94Z I too have the K9 from happy trail motorcycle. I run D606 tires without any problems.

gruet782 Look for a youtube video that may help.

gruet782 I find it very hard to believe a fork brace would go over the boots, would never clamp tight enough over a boot to do the job of bracing the forks....

Mcnooby I picked up a Kytech, but after 2 hours I still can't get it installed on my 06. Instructions say that it definitely needs to seal over the boots, but there's just no way...not enough clearance. What am I missing?

KYTECH won't fit over boots!

I just picked up a Kytech from ebay as well. BUT there's no way to install it over the boots...just not enough clearance. How did you install yours? I want to make sure my boots stay sealed really well...

KLRinstinct Several years ago, I remember reading about someone who had crashed because a rock got jammed between the tire and the brace. Has anyone in here heard reports of the SuperBrace or similar products being unsafe due to mud/rocks jamming up the wheel? I know the KLR is a little wobbly but I can deal with this if the tight feel comes at the cost of a bad accident.

Buildit K-9 brace fits well and I can run a full knobie with it.

klrdan69 I have one, it makes a big difference at high speeds. It really tightens up the front end. I lived in California when I first got my bike, sure would have been nice to have the brace on for those damn rain grooves on the freeways.
