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.

Another satisfied customer.

Just put one on my 1500. I didn't have any problems with wobble at speed before, but what I did have, and has now completely gone away was a real unstable insecure feeling when coming to a stop.

That has now completely gone. I guess the forks were bending slightly under the load of the brakes, and now the brace has stopped that.

I bought the brace to improve things when cornering and it's done that as well, but if it had just fixed the low speed stuff and nothing else, it would have been well worth it.

Just buy one.

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.

Both my brother and I replaced our stock units and swear the upgrade is exactly that - an upgrade. Definitely a good investment for bro's 05 and my 04.

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 .

Had one on my kawi concours, and it really helped the handling of the bike. Dont know if they even make one for my 2010 wing, or if I need it...but it did help the other bike 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..

You can check out my gallery. I have one on my 1800. I love it. Completely made a difference. And I love that its not chrome. Very low maintenence and won't ever have to get the piece re-chromed. Happy riding!! Hope that helped at all.

Again another old post. I would assume that you have already made your decision, but to anyone else still considering a brace.

1. Fork braces are fine. The superbrace two piece affair isn't adjustable and can put lateral force on your forks that can effect their operation. Increasing sliction by misalignment will also cause earlier fork bushing failure, seal leakage and a stiffer ride.

2. Adjustable fork braces are made by Kuryakyn and Traxxion.

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.
