I can not tell what difference I am supposed to detect after installing. My bike rides and handles identically - but it looks pretty.
More involved than video dictates; instructions that come with brace tells you to loosen axel pinch bolts after you take off dust cover then install brace;then tork pinch bolts to factory specs. Also had to file down lip on rear section of fender where the old push tab connected the old dust cover to rear section fender. Then I plugged the hole so water won't splash up into the faring.
I had the Super race installed at the same time I had my 2nd set of tires installed at 11,250 miles. I didn't think the 2015 Wing handled poorly but after installing the brace, this bike holds a line better, especially in the sweepers. Love it. Big difference. Noticeable improvement in handling. Do it.
I put this brace on my 2015 Wing after 11,500 miles. What I noticed was what I didn't notice. I no longer notice wallowing in the curves. I no longer notice 99% of the "GoldWing" wobble. I notice truer tracking with 2 up riding. This was a great addition. Buy it.
I added this product after only 180 miles on a new 2012 Goldwing so I cannot comment on the difference of driving without one. I find the handling of my bike very responsive and I imagine this is due to the Superbrace. I would recommend this product to all.
I added the Superbrace to my 1800 and am pleased at the increased stability and feel it has added. The forks on the 1800 are thicker than the 1500 and I thought the fork brace would not be necessary. I added progressive springs and a light weight fork oil, and it improved the handling. However, until I added the superbrace I was not entirely pleased the way my 1800 handled in the front. I highly recommend the superbrace.
I put this on my bike 2007 GL1800 2 years ago, hoping to fix 37mph shake, it did not. however it makes the front end feel a lot more solid and ridged. I'm not happy with the upper and lower dust shields, the chrome is cheap and lets the look down. I would do a brace again if I needed to just not a SUPERBRACE
This brace works well. Stiffens up the front end for better handling/cornering, improves tire wear and reduces cupping. added this with a set of centramatic wheel balancers, and the ride has improved dramatically.
This fork brace is a step in the right direction. A bit pricey, but how much are you willing to pay for piece of mind?
And we can't wait to show you how it's done!
