the crossbar is there for a reason.
if you ever raced motox youd know
the bar is there to distribute the weight throught the bars
to reduce the amount of wobble from the forks. since your
hands do not apply an equal amount of pressure to each side of the bars this
results in un-properly distributed downforce on the bars.
the bars obviously work without the brace but was not intended to be used without.
Just like the counter balance weights on your car wheels. You can remove those also
the wheels will still turn, but they are there for a reason.
im sure you dont care. just wanted to point that out.
That right there is the main reason I removed the cross bar. I like both looks but it is just easier to get to the key.I like mine and for the time will be keeping the cross bar and pad on although hard to get the the key I like the look.
I used to ride MX back in the day and used Pro taper then on my KX.
60MPH? Heck I wish. I've only had mine to 55 and that was just for an instant. Speed limits are all 45 around here. I have lots of fun in the canyons though.will you feel a difference on smooth roads at 60mph? doubtful.
just something to keep in mind if you notice a change after removing it.
