We found that electric tape to hold the shim in place

just under the upper triple tree, then slide down onto and over the shim, shim gap should be inline with triple gap

then remove tape before sliding all the way

Honda XR650L Fork shims (Lower your bike)

  • The fork diameter on the xr650l gets smaller between the triples these shims fill in the difference allowing you to clamp it correctly. therefore you can lower the front clamps of your bike up to 3" more, On our bike we purchased brackets to raise the handlebars to get them out of the way of the forks to slide by the mounts
