    Evening Kevin,
    Got your check today, thanks. Out of curiosity are you hoping to correct a steering head wobble with the brace? If you are I would be interested how it turns out. Also, if I were you I would be careful not to distort your forks as that could cause stiction which worst case might cause premature fork bushing wear. This is the main reason I was hesitant to keep the brace installed. I had a decelerating wobble that started at about 45 mph and stopped around 30 mph. I think (hope) my issue was the OEM Metzler tires on my 2010 which i bought with only 900 miles on the clock last year. So, the Metzler tires were a bit old and stiff. Replaced with Michelin PR3 and all is well now but only 1K miles on Michelins so we shall see.

    Jim
