Anti-Dive Fork Valve Shim for Honda GL1800 Gold Wing eliminates the harsh ride in front end of your bike when you are on rough road, railroad tracks or making a turn. Works off the rear brake and restricts the flow in the left fork and prevents it from moving.
Made of heavy duty aluminum. There is no need to modify, just insert it between the two valves. It comes with two longer bolts to replace the original. It is very easy to install just four bolts to remove the front fender and only takes about 10 minutes and can be removed at anytime. Comes with 2 bolts 20 x 5 mm (about 1/8" longer than the stock screws).
with this part,if u lightly press the brake peddle
the rear brake only engage.at slowing for stoplights and in slow heavy traffic
this is a big plus..
also on gravel and dirt roads,the fear of the front wheel
sliding go way down..
my "no not stock parts on my bike"
riding buddy has them also.
When I received the Anti Dive Fork Valve Shim I must admit,I was skeptical.
The install was easy.
I took my F6B out for a 20 mile ride.
I rode on the road that I experienced bone jarring vibrations through the handlebars when I hit bumps prior to the install.
I was amazed when those vibrations were almost totally eliminated.
I have now put on another 750 plus miles in the last week and am glad I installed the shim.
This is another great product from a great company.
I ride a 02 GL with a Hannigan sidecar this puts a lot of additional weight on the bike.I have the easy steer triple tree with a complete fork rebuild. My ride was so stiff, I hated to even come close to a manhole cover. The jar was very shocking. (I'm 70, the older you get the more intense is the shock).
I decided to try the Anti-Dive Fork Shim. It took about 10-15 mins. to install. Then I went looking for the Manhole covers and anything else that would go "Thud". After crossing the 1st cover, I thought I had missed it. There was no "Thud". The forks absorbed the shock. I thought maybe I had grown use to the thud, so I was ever so vigilant for the next cover. I aimed straight for it, and waited for the dreaded "Thud", again the front end did as it should and absorbed the shock. Wow, I thought, this is the way a big bike should ride, smooth and absorbing the highway and making a very pleasant ride.
I have several friends with GL trikes and they all complain of the dreaded manhole covers and anything else that causes that "stiff bone jarring jolt". After I told them about my experience, they ordered theirs. I highly recommend to the altered bike riders, Trikes.
And we can't wait to show you how it's done!
