SuperBrace for Gen III
 
Any thoughts on the SuperBrace for Gen III ES? I had one on my Kaw Voyager XII and it made a huge difference.

I've always felt that a brace like this just masks rather than fixes a problem. If you have a wobble then address it or it will manifest itself somewhere or somehow else.

There isn't a wobble. I am asking the forum if anyone has used it and if there was or wasn't an improvement.

You can't put a Superbrace on upside down fork legs.

Do they make one for the GenIII A? I love the fork brace on my other bike.

I’ve used Superbraces on all of my old Honda’s with no negative results but you need to take some time so you Don’t add anything negative in like side loading the fork legs or binding, you shouldn’t just bolt it In willy-nilly.

Now truthfully the fjr has such a beefy fork it really isn’t needed and the es forks are even more so, so my advice is to save your money and use it for gas. My .02

I'm with Steve. On an FJR, save yer money for gas or new fork springs of a proper spring rate. Best suspension bang for the buck ever.
