I was sceptical at first so I purchased a used one, and I'm now a believer.. Before the brace I had a small wobble at hyway speed when lightly holding the bars that would go away if I held the bars normally bit even one handed it would wiggle a bit, no more of that after the brace! And way more solid in the corners. My bike is a 2001, and it made a world of difference I wouldn't hesitate to buy this product new if I hadn't found a used one it makes that much of a difference. Hope this helps someone. It works well.
