Fitting: This motorcycle fork brace is designed to be fitted by a competent person, if you are at all uncertain please contact your local motorcycle garage. For those that are confidant here goes
To fit this brace to your motorcycle first of all raise the fork dust caps (where fitted) as the brace must not be fitted over these, place the leg clamps around the top of the fork leg by removing the M6 Allen head screws (5mm Allen key required) put around the stanchions and lower into place on the fork leg. Screw these up lightly so you can still move the clamp on the fork leg but try to keep the gap as even as possible each side, once both leg clamps are in place put the top plate on and align up with the screw holes. These take the M6 x 20mm button head screws (4mm Allen key required) and again put all four screws in and lightly tighten so you can now line up the leg clamps and top plate so all is even and square, all the screws can now be tightened and the order would be the leg clamps first then the top plate.
Torque setting for M6 stainless bolts are in N-m 8.7 Dry or 7.8 lubricated
