Super-Brace

Postby steve allen » Sat Jan 31, 2015 12:00 am



Any idea how to install a aftermarket super-brace on 1500SE? Got it as part of package when I got the 2 side pieces for front fender that goes over forks. Thanks, Steve

Mine did not come with bolts, you cannot use the bolts you remove they must be replaced with bolts that are 5mm longer.
If at first you don't succeed, hide the evidence.

Interested in what you think after it's installed? I will not bias your opinion w/mine!

I too, would like to hear your thoughts before and after. Have been considering that or the "blackwing" for mine. Hoping to tighten up the front end a bit. Thanks

I put the Blackwing brace on and if you really know your bike's everyday "feel", then yes it did tighten up the front end. I went with the Blackwing because the chrome part sit's flush with the fender, like it's not even there ;)

Here is a Craigslist listing. Might save a few bucks!

$50.00 and free shipping in the U.S.!

http://inlandempire.craigslist.org/mpo/4788706226.html

I believe this is where I ordered mine.

I could not tell the difference between Super and Blackwing braces. But when I first fitted a brace I could tell as soon as I accelerated off the drive. I would choose the Blackwing out of the two also, for reasons already stated.

I just installed a Super Brace on my '96 SE today. Went for a short test ride, about a 1/2 hr., 20 or so miles and it seems to have tightened things up. I guess I didn't know I had a problem until it was gone!
