why though? 41mm forks are pretty beefy for a bike of this class. Worse, the screws are located in the worst possible location and orientation if the intent was to resist twisting/bending/spreading. The Superbrace guys know what they're doing. This outfit is just making random shiny bits.

SuperBrace doesn't currently make braces for ANY SuperSports........

So therefore a worthless piece of bling is a legitimate stand-in? Fork braces aren't needed on road bikes with properly-sized fork tubes. Even the adventure applications it's gratuitous aside from those who really do ride across the world on moonscape "roads". 20+ years ago suspension was poor and a brace sometimes helped, or at least it gave the consumer the warm comfort of "have brace, I'm good" when in reality it made no improvement. Remember those thin aluminum sheets on many a Yamaha?

If you want a brace, get a real one. One of their existing product line may in fact work with little to no modification.

Did I say that? NO!

I just find em. Some people DO want them. If it's 100% for looks, who gives a Sh*t. That's what's nice about living in the Free World; you can do Whatever Blows Your Skirt Up!

Lighten up and you'll live longer. Jeez!

I had my skirt blown up once. ...
Hey, don't judge me... It was Halloween, and I went as a hooker. Men's feet are NOT designed for 3" heels, although the fishnet stockings DID make me feel sexy. Did I just say that out loud?... crap
Keep up the good work, Fang. (still trying to forget about the whole Tiger exhaust fiasco, lol).

AND, THERE IT IS! Just when I had put that behind me and moved on with my life, such as it is! How long must I hang my head in shame?

No one's feet are designed for 3" heels, but as long as there are foot fetishists out there, 3" heels it will be!
