Forks counter weight

Post by dwpowell1 » Wed Apr 11, 2018 11:10 pm



Question.?? I have an 81 interstate 1100 that I am removing all of the dress (fairing, bags etc.) There is a front fork counter weight that states to make sure it is in use WITH the fairing. Does this need to be kept in use if I am using without the fairing?

No, it is meant to replace the weight of the headlight to dampen shakes.
