OK Goldwingers, anybody have any thoughts on the Kuryakan Fork Brace?

Have not noticed my forks shaking in 57K miles of good riding.

I do feel a click now when I back ot of a parking space which is making my neck bearing suspect...

The reason I asked is that when I am leaned over in a curve and it gets bumpy, it feels super squirrelly. More than the VTX did. I know Pops put a fork brace on his wing. The Kury costs about half what the Traxxion brace does.

It gets squirrelly, because this bike has the power to make the front end...Dance... ckl

Wes, just make sure whatever brace you choose is a three piece brace so you can tighten the center after you put the front rim on to keep from getting stiction. I have the Traxxion cause at the time they had the best fork protectors.

Fred, put you bike on the center stand and grab 1 grip and shake it back and forth. Watch what your front end does. Scary. As aggressive as you are I am surprised you have not put one on yet.

Wingleader, over and out.

I got the Kury Generation II Fork Brace installed and was able to get out to some twisties out by the river.
I think it does make a difference, the front seems tighter on the rough pavement in the curves.
I'll test it some more next weekend. grn
