I asked about a fork brace when I had the Traxion suspension upgrade on my '08 GL1800. I was told it would not fit.

Sorry the photo is not brighter, this is a Original Superbrace brand and it clears fine and can even be lifted higher if needed as I moved it high enough to just clear the fork seals so it would not touch them or rub... I installed it once my first tire cupped in 2003 add it helped a little but when I added the Traxxion AK-20's it changed everything for the better and stopped all cupping and made the ride 100% better... and it continues to work great now as a Trike when I had the kit installed in 2012 ... so no problem with mine...

Maybe try loosening your brace and moving it up to just clear your fender... it should just be a 1/16 of an inch.. or so....
