Fork Brace

First time on a forum, but felt that I had something to say,

DL1000, just fitted a fork brace, best money ever spent on a motorcycle, the biggest improvement in handling and feel, easy to fit too.

This makes more difference to your machine than any engine management system or exhaust system ever will.

Thanks to for getting one to the UK at a good price.

SuperBrace on my Wee, very nice addition. Although I would place the SonicSprings and Secdem Windshield higher on the "must have" list.

Once the break-in period was over, I ran my Vee pretty hard in the twisties and really liked the way she handled herself. I put a Super Brace on the front of my Vee about 350 miles ago. What a difference! As good as she was stock, she's even better now with the Super Brace -- I'm flat amazed that a little piece of aluminum has made such an improvement. Best $159.00 I've ever spent. Ride safe, ride often.

SuperBrace user here. It makes an ungodly difference in handling. Next up is the Elka rear shock (any day now...) and then some Sonic Springs.
