2HE KLR650 clutch arm mod

Here's a picture of the 2HE clutch arm mod now available to the KLR650 owners of the ADV community. The stock factory arm is on the left and the 2HE clutch arm mod is on the right. The added length of the modded arm decreases the effort at the clutch lever, reducing fatique and makes the clutch much easier to operate. This mod works on both the new and old generation KLR650's. I have had this mod on my own KLR for 4 years now and consider it to be the best bang for the buck mod on the bike. If you've ever thought about a hydraulic clutch kit for your KLR this is a much less expensive solution. Cost is $35.00 plus exchange of your old clutch arm in good working condition.
You can reach me at: dakotabeemer@hotmail.com

Thanks for your support. 2HE

I am definitely interested. How hard is it to install? Do you have installation instructions?

KLR650 clutch arm

Hi Thraan,
The clutch arm is a very easy installation. Remove the cable at the clutch arm. Clean the area around the shaft seal so no dirt drops in. Rotate the clutch arm counterclockwise about a 1/4 turn and it will lift right out. Install the new arm and readjust the cable to spec. It's about as simple as it gets.
Thanks for asking. 2HE

Sweet! I will talk to a buddy here who also has a KLR and see if he wants one too.

Thanks!

2HE- First off, kudos for stepping up on producing this mod. I've wanted one for years.

Second, a proposition... Are you willing to discount the purchase price if I send you 2 "cores" and only expect one in return? I figure you could use a couple extra for inventory purposes.

Thanks in advance.

That's it??? and I have ignored my slowly leaking seal

Is there any adjustment to the cable mount?

clutch arm mod

Hey DirtyDog, Sounds like good plan. Sent you a PM

Hey RW, The arm itself is the same as the stock one only a touch longer to decrease the effort needed. The adjustment comes at both ends of the clutch cable. Just adjust it the same way as the stock arm. (with a touch of free play at the lever) This is also a good time to lube or replace the cable and lube the pivot at the clutch lever. 2HE

Core shipped

Hey Ernie,

Got the part in yesterday and is on the bike. Wow this makes a difference.

I also got the easy pull system from mc superstore and I could barely tell the difference, waste of money. I do have both on my brothers bike and works well.

I just shipped the core back to you.

Thanks
