Steering Stabilizer / Front Fork Stabilizer

Postby Jmill2013 » Mon Jun 17, 2013 11:02 pm



A little help. I'm sure that I read something about a product (remember it being a metal brace of sorts positioned between the forks) that would protect against the 'deaths wobble' I have experienced a couple of times in the last month on my 89 GL1500.

1. It's called a fork brace
2. You need to be checking your steering head bearings, etc. if you have developed a bad wobble lately!

I have also heard that the REAR tyre can cause steering problems as well. Check it out.

The world is not going to finish today, as it is already tomorrow in Australia and New Zealand, and other islands of foreign nations such as Guam and Samoa.
