front fork braces

Postby floydthiessen » Fri Aug 26, 2011 1:59 pm



Wondered if anyone has installed one of the superbrace front fork stablizers. My 82 Aspencade seems to wobble a bit at low speeds when going over speed bumps etc. Wondering if this would work or is there something else that I should be looking at?

I had a similar problem a few months back. It was the stem bearings, I would replace the stem bearings before adding aftermarket stuff. You maybe putting a bandage on a problem that will get bigger.

Ya thanks for that. I have already talked to a mechanic and he mentioned the same thing.
