i will never EVER ride without a superbrace again, dis ting woiks !
I am still trying to figure out why Honda put a plastic brace on the front of the wing. I decided to order this brace for my 2008 wing, had it installed and now enjoy a much better ride. Those hard bumps in the mid-west don't jam the front end as bad. I also feel the stability has improved. Do you see a pattern here! I order these parts, and reorder them for my second wing. Some of course was a lesson learned so be sure and read your reviews good before purchasing a product. The reviews really help understand how the product performs or don't perform.
I have never had the high speed wobble, so I cannot speak to that.
What I can say is that the constant hunting is gone. I have had to ride over a couple of miles of rotomilled asphalt for for the last two weeks and what a difference this brace makes. The front end is now rock solid, wished I had purchased a few years ago.
You won't be sorry if you install one on your bike.
I finally decided to install a Super Brace on my 2012 Wing. I live about a 1/2 mile down a bumpy dirt road and my bike always seemed to want to "hunt" around on the dirt. It never felt stable; like the bike could slip out from under me at any moment. I grew up on a dirt road, so I'm pretty used to it and I've never felt like I didn't know how to handle the bike on that surface. I've read about the flex that many have talked about as well, but was skeptical about how much difference the brace would make. I've felt that "wallowing" feeling when running through the twisties as well.
Well, can I just say WOW!!! I took the Wing out for a little spin after I installed the Super Brace and was absolutely amazed at the difference. Bike tracks absolutely straight, no more "hunting" on the dirt road, handling through bumpy, high speed curves is improved, the whole bike just feels "tighter" and more stable. I should have done this a LONG LONG time ago!
NO hard feelings, but I rated it a "1" because the Superbrace I received did not include the four bolts needed to attach the lower mud guards. The build quality is excellent and the brace is quite sturdy. I'm sure it will do a good job when I get the bolts needed to install it.
I contacted W.S. and hope they can send the bolts to me soon.....or at least advise me of the bolt specifications so I can try to locate some locally. Then I'll submit an updated review of how well the brace installs/works.
I thought having this on a trike would be more beneficial than even have on a 2 wheeler, since trike its push/pull on steering which has to be putting twisting torqueing on fork tubes. Install was easy, did have minor issue keeping hex socket on one bolt due to brake line fitting.Test drive felt immediate difference. Twisties less effort on steering input, tracking quicker/smoother.Also seemed to be less harshness on front end when hitting those road imperfections.If riding a track, would highly recommend!
And we can't wait to show you how it's done!
