I would like some recommendations for an aftermarket fork brace. Thank you.
I have this on my 2008 and it works great! Wing Stuff is where I purchased mine and this is where the below info comes from.

I had a Super Brace for a couple of years. Don't know that it did anything. Now I have the Traxxion Dynamics brace that came with their package. I'm actually not sure I need the brace. I initially installed it because of the wobble. The Super Brace helped some, but it was still there. What stopped it completely was switching to the All Balls conical bearings.

I had a little wobble and the brace took that away. Not sure what caused the wobble but it's gone now since I installed the Super Brace 5 years ago.

Where did you obtain your set? I like the sound of that 😉

I've used both Kuryakyn and Traxxion braces. My opinion, for what it's worth, is that the Traxxion brace is a much better brace.

Hey All
I have never tried a brace for the wobble
But when I rebuilt my '03 after our wreck I replaced the Honda bearings with AllBalls tapered roller bearings
I now have no wobble at any speed and the handling is even better
Enjoy

every day is a good day......some are just gooder than others

The brace took away the 'flex' feeling on slow speed turns. I never had a wobble per say at any speed. It did help with taking out what I felt like flex and kept the forks straight. Maybe it's all in my aging mind or in my wallet.
