Install on my WR450 went very easy and all parts fit great. I have only ridden with it once so I cannot speak for longevity or durability, but you can definitely feel it work. I am starting to get it dialed in and it works wonderfully. You get into a turn and dont have to worry about rocks or cross ruts, that front just holds itself in line perfectly. Very happy with my purchase

Found the product to be good overall, but the allen head fasteners that come with the kit are very cheap and strip easily. I am a licensed mechanic so I know that the tools are good and the torque on the bolts was not excessive. The heads on the bolts stripped well before the bolt was too tight.
Very well thought out and well made. Getting the frame clamp centered was a little fiddly, but overall very easy to put on. With the low speed set low, is basically transparent, but high speed is there when you need it. Raised the bars the perfect amount too.

Question:Q: If I want to raise my handlebars an additional amount than the under bar raises it, can I still add a handlebar raiser to it?Question asked Over 10 months ago
Question answered by Trevor GearheadUser's contributor status: Top 10Question answered Over 10 months agoAnswer: A: This kit actually raises handlebars 1" to 1-1/2", depending on application. If you wanted additional height beyond that, I don't see why that would interfere with and underbar stabilizer.

Question:Q: How much does the under the bar system raise your bar positionQuestion asked Over 5 years agoI'm a tall rider and am utilizing a 1.5" bar riser that allows me a much better position on the bike while standing. If I remove my riser and add this system where will it leave me?
Question answered by JoshMundyUser's contributor status:Question answered Over 5 years agoAnswer: A: I was running my stock bar mounts with a 3/4" riser and these are definately taller than where those were. If I had to guess I would say its about 1.25" - 1.5" taller than my stock wr450 bars. I see no reason why you could not add small risers onto the clamps on here though if you needed taller

Question:Q: Will this stabilizer fit a 2005 KTM 640 AdventureQuestion asked Over 5 years agoi want to fit this Stabilizer to the KTM 640 Adventure LC 4
Question answered by MotoSportRyanTUser's contributor status: MotoSport Staff ExpertQuestion answered Over 5 years agoAnswer: A: Unfortunately, Fastway does not list an any stabilizer kits that would fit your KTM 640 Adventure. The only KTM Adventure models they show this kit for would be the 950/990 Models but I can't say for sure it would work on your 640.

Question:Q: What the difference of over the bars or under witch is better? bouth say that they raise bar hight ?Question asked Over 6 years ago
Question answered by MotoSportExpertUser's contributor status: MotoSport StaffQuestion answered Over 6 years agoAnswer: A: The under bar kit will raise the handlebars, but the over bar kit does not actually raise the handlebar position due it being mounted with the stock handlebar mounts about the handlebar. The under bar kit will keep the stabilizer protected and will allow you to still utilize a stock cross bar and pad. With an over the bar kit the stabilizer is exposed above the handlebar and if your bars use a crossbar and pad it will need to be bent and modified to clear the stabilizer. The overall function of the stabilizer will be the same in either position.
Question answered by ZigsUser's contributor status:Question answered Over 6 years agoAnswer: A: I think that under th ebar is much better because it raises the bars more, and you can still run a bar pad and your expensive damper is more protected in a crash. The one big disadvantage of it is that it is a little tougher to adjust the damper with the bars/bar pad over it. You can still do it you just have to get your fingers in there.
