TT 101 and 102 braces are interchangeable with most models having the same tube size, as are the TT 101M and 102M. If you alter your bike, you may find another style brace works with your setup better. Feel free to contact me if you have questions on fitment.
Example: You have a naked /6 or /7 and decide to use aftermarket gauges. You only need holes for handlebar risers so may find the /5 brace looks better with a smaller envelope and smooth face. If you want to attach brackets see the Tech and Tips page.
Standard Brace for /6-7 ~ R65 from 85-95
TT-101 :: 36mm forks
TT-101M :: 38.5mm forks
Direct replacement for the stock /6-7 top plate. Improves handling and gives the bike a planted feel in corners and on rough roads.
Standard Brushed Aluminum finish: $174
Black or Clear powder coat: $184
TT-102 :: 36mm
TT-102M :: 38.5mm
Designed to compliment the /5 curved headlight nacelle, which holds the Motometer. Requires only riser mounts so the envelope is smaller for a clean look.
Also made for 38.5mm forks when the other mounting holes aren’t needed. Including the R65 model years 1985-95
Standard Brushed Aluminum finish: $174
Black Powder coat: $184
TT-105 G/S Brace ~ 36mm forks: $186
New G/S brace is here! Completely redesigned.
Black powder coat only
Smaller, lighter and with replaceable carbon fiber signal stems.
Unlike the BMW bracket, the TT-105CS signal stems can be used on either side so you can carry a spare when out riding hard in the back country. It takes 15 minutes and a 4mm allen wrench to change one out. They are much stronger than the BMW bracket – at a fraction of the weight and cost.
EXTRA TT-105CS Carbon fiber signal stems: $6 each
R80GS and R100GS Lower Fork Bridge
The Lower Fork Bridge is being redesigned and currently not available.
The new version will be lighter, increased tire clearance and cooler looking.

I don’t make a top brace for the R80 – R100GS. They have a robust, cast, top yoke that works well.
I DO make Riser Spacers for them, which raises the handlebars 30mm. See: Fork Setup
TT-104 R80ST ~ 36mm forks NEW DESIGN!
Based on the TT-102 it has a smaller envelope and cleaner look than the previous design. It accommodates the ST nacelle brackets and gauge mounts.
Also fits G/S models with 36mm forks not using the BMW signal pods.
TT-104 :: $174
Has the auxiliary gauge bracket locator pin and clearance for a spanner wrench to adjust the head bearing without removing the brace.
Low Profile Stem Nut
I strongly recommend using a TT low profile stem nut with a TT Top Brace.
The BMW nut has a shallow, 2.4mm skirt to hold everything in place. TT Stem Nut has a 6mm skirt, which engages the center stem near full depth of the 7mm thick brace. It provides a solid interface which does not interfere with compression on the bearing adjuster. A huge improvement in keeping the forks aligned and centered. The 4mm lower profile gives it a smooth, cleaner look.
TT-301 :: $34
TT-301D – with damper hole
Machined from 17-4 PH Stainless Steel
Low Profile TT Stem Nut for a stock BMW top plate
TT-301B :: $34
TT-301BD – with damper hole
The BMW nut has a cast, tapered, skirt that makes contact with barely half of the 4mm plate thickness. The TT Stem Nut has a precision machined, 3mm skirt which provides full contact with the plate walls for the best interface possible.
The lower profile provides better clearance and a more aesthetic appearance.
Shown mounted with a TT Cafe brace, fork extensions and gauge mount.
Want to add a bit of bling to the yoke? High quality, 20mm roundels with a nickel/silver base and cloisonné enamel, which is baked to form a ceramic. They won’t fade in the sun and not harmed by oils or solvents.
TT-R20 :: $6 each
They look great on the carb top too!
See the Fork Setup page for roundels!
