Installing a SuperBrace on DL650 (Video)

I don't sell SuperBrace's, but I recently installed one on a 2012 DL650 that belongs to a Stromtropper member.

I didn't need to move the front fender. If doing so, just loosening the bolts as shown in the video may cause a problem. https://www.stromtrooper.com/dl650-20...r-warning.html

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.

The captive nuts on the back side of the front fender are a pain, especially when re-installing the bolts. The bolts were very tight with red threadlock, but they did come loose without any issues. If I were not shooting the video, I may have tried to install without moving the fender. In fact, I may go back and edit the video to mention that fact.

Same here - I took the one off of mine which was installed by the previous owner due to a fork oil leak. I didn't' need to remove the fender to get it off, '05 Wee.

The opinions expressed in this forum are those of the poster and may not necessarily be the same as the reader - that's why it's called an opinion.

If loud pipes save lives, imagine what safety gear can do.

How come if a man kills another man in the heat of passion he's a murderer? But if a man kills another man in the heat of battle he's a hero?

There is more room on the Wee than the Glee. Still, I think it can be done, My Glee installation was with a Richland Rick brace rather than a Superbrace. Just be aware of the possible problem with thread locker on the fender bolts.

The Superbrace can be installed on the Wee II with no need to loosen or take off the front fender.

Mine was an easy install
