    The 2013+ models offer superior performance in every way from previous generations. The water cooled engine does wonders for power on the pavement and coolness on the trail. The problem is that it required BMW to shave weight anywhere possible. One such place was in the girth of the upper stanchion tubes relative to previous model GSes.

    Under extreme conditions, the tube’s cap which goes into the upper tree has been known to separate causing harm to the bike and rider.

    If you are an extreme rider and you want some reinforcement and peace of mind I’ve created the “Stanch-Clamp” which adds additional clamping force around the stanchion and down on the capped stud. Working in conjunction with an engineer and machine shop that supplies parts for the aerospace industry a mold was formed which transitioned into a 3D print and then an aluminum prototype that has been reproduced and successfully used by dozens riders to date.

    Disclaimers. The product is not guaranteed. It has not been lab tested yet. This isn’t a chrome part for your neighbor’s Harley nor for riders who only go to starbucks. It is peace of mind in the pounding of off-road terrain.

    All I can say is : BRAVO! Your product will save lives. I have decided to get this rather than the 'upgrade' BMW has belatedly offered. Why? Because I can't be bothered riding for hours to the dealer nor do I want to wait for months until they have the special tool and parts available. $ 159 is cheap insurance and demonstrates to my peers that I'm a hardcore GS giant wannabe ;-) or at least committed to building my bike with state of the art components.

    As an aside, some years ago, I had a fork tube completely pull out of the upper triple clamp on my 2003 K 1200 GT. Highly unusual, and very surprised to say the least. Fortunately, this happened while the bike was stationary: I was leveraging it off the kickstand with a hefty tug on the left handle bar. The tube slipped right out, front wheel turned one way, the handlebars the opposite way. Scary!

    Inquisitive minds are going to want to know how on earth that happened?

    It's simple: I had the fork seals replaced. The guy working on the bike didn't tighten the pinch bolt on the triple clamp. This was NOT done by a BMW dealership, btw, but by an independent guy who claimed he was a factory trained BMW tech. Turns out, he was lying.

    When installed, do these clamps rotate on the fork? Or do they clamp tight?

    like fidget spinners. If you get ones with perfect bearings, they can spin up to 10k RPM.


    They are clamped on sleeves. No spinning on the tube but the tube design doesn't change and it can still freely rotate in the top plate. (I hesitate to call it a top clamp)
