Traxxion fork brace

Post by Jonbarking3 »

My first post, does anyone have a Traxxion fork brace on their 1800 ?
Is the black one better than the silver or is the silver better than the black ?
I mean is one easier to keep clean compared to the other ?
Does the finish on the black or silver stay on longer ? Bugs, dirt and such will take their toll on items

Hope all this is ok to ask on here
Take Care

Welcome aboard. Absolutely no difference between the black or silver braces aside from color. If you're more shiny inclined, then silver is your choice. If you're like some of us and prefer a little less bling, then black makes sense. Ride safe and keep the shiny side up.

as already said, it is just a brace. the color is just for you to appreciate, or not.
