Has anyone had experience with a Superbrace? (Rivco part # SB2318)

Apparently they claim to do the following:

Reduce low and high speed wobbles.

Improve stability in tight cornering.

Improve tire life and reduces cupping.

Decrease sensitivity to rough road surfaces and rain grooves.

Thanks!

Had one put on my 98 1500 and it did help with frontend wobble. Worked as advertised.

Will a superbrace make a big difference for a trike front end?
Assuming the trike still has the stock tree, I would think it would do for a trike what it does for 2 wheels. If the tree has been replaced it may already have something built into it to strengthen the front end.

I have used the super brace on all my 1500's (three) and one 1500 trike they all benifited from the brace and now am on my second 1800 and they both have had the brace--- it works very well on them since the 1800 forks are very weak and do flex a lot .

Shop around for your brace. There are a lot of overpriced stuff out there. The fancy machined ones are all covered up by the fender trim cover!

Could someone post a picture of the super Brace? I was going to order a traxxion brace as I have the traxxion fork springs and want to order a traxxion rear shock, but am interested in seeing the super brace before I make a decision..

Joey, if you are referring to the Superbrace it is a direct bolt on replacement for the OEM brace (you have a 1200 right?). I put one on mine when the stock one developed some bad wear and what a huge difference it was. A few turns with an allen wrench and done like dinner.

Fitted Brace ,

Its the a no brainer. There inexpensive and fairly easy to install. You will be glad to put one on. It will improve handling.
i have fitted a new brace and it was easy enough to fit , but i have a question to ask , the fork cover needs to be cut , but i have no idea what and where to cut away the access , so could someone give me a idea what to remove , i havnt got a ride out yet . :):D
