Title: Fork Brace and Cover
Post by: chuck81 on February 29, 2012, 03:31:52 AM
Fork Brace with sst fasteners, $40 shipped, Cover $45 shipped. Use oem fasteners for cover. USPS priority delivery confirmation to lower 48 for listed price. I have 4 covers and 5 fork braces. Brace is not engraved, will engrave "S" for no extra charge.

I want the black background with the silver "S" for the round cover.

does the cover still accept the metal "suzuki" stickers that go on the stock part?

Post by: cole on March 01, 2012, 02:59:09 PM
Does the brace replace or supplement the oem and does  it offer a noticeable improvement? Yes, if I didn't need a chain I'll be all over that brace regardless of those answers - it's shiny :thumb:.

The cover is close to the stock shape except thicker billet aluminum. I have never had anyone try to put the stock stick-on pc. to it. I do not think it will fit. I would consider machining the "S" for extra charge. Check my pictures for what I have done.

The fork brace is a replacement part. Billet alum. 1/2 inch thick with new stainless steel fasteners.

update  :woohoo:
3 covers and 7 fork braces in stock

I forget who in the board I bought this one from.
I like things with a little style rather than just plain.

Any of these still available? I'm thinking primarily the fork brace with engraved "S", but might be persuaded into the side cover with "S" as well if they are available.

What is the benefit of a thicker brace? I need a new one so if I can make a good mod at the same time, I'd be happy to try out yours!
Title: Re: Fork Brace and Cover
Post by: crzydood17 on December 28, 2012, 04:30:17 PM
These are freaking amazing, get one bro.

It makes your bike feel so much tighter when you turn in. Much easier to hold a good line.
Title: Re: Fork Brace and Cover
Post by: mustangGT90210 on December 28, 2012, 04:46:19 PM
That's good to know. I'm looking at around 20ish with shipping for a used stock one, so this looks like a good deal!

Does it come with the bolts to attach the fender as well as to attach to the forks?

I'll post up an order next week most likely. On new years day I'm making a small drive to get a 3.55 limited slip rear end + 4x4 IFS to throw under my truck. Gotta make sure I don't run the project fund dry lol

the stock front end on a gs is pretty wimpy and has a lot of flex in it when leaned over.  Adding a stiffer brace help reduce that flex.  This provides better feed back and feel from the front end.

I am definitely interested in buying a fork brace. My front end feels like im skating around on spaghetti noodles at times. That thin original plate has to go. Im looking for a plain brace with no engraving.

Will these fit under the motech engine guards?
Title: Re: Fork Brace and Cover
Post by: chuck81 on February 10, 2017, 06:29:08 AM
I don't have the answer to that. I would say if you have 1/4 inch or more between the stock cover and your guards that my cover should fit. If it will not fit I would let you return the cover for a refund minus shipping (lower 48, $7.10).

Will these fit under the motech engine guards?
