It seems like they are trying to fix a problem that isn't there. Kinda like what drug companies do.

At least it adds some bling.

I orderd one last week and just got it yesterday, I'll post some photos once I install it..

For me, it is the bling factor

I had one that did wonders on a big bore dual sport (SRC on an XR650L). But that has alot longer fork & skinnier tubes than the 919.

+1 Fork flex and related problems mentioned by SuperBrace are not a issue with the 43 mm 919 forks.

If it makes you happy buy it.

If a fork does flex stopping it will likely give you chassis flex which is much harder to deal with at speed... skip the brace.

Bling Bling!!!!

Also.. The last photo is a digital clock I finally found after looking for one for 2years!...

I use velcro to keep it in place, and I pull it off when I wash the bike..And it is very easy too see, and does not take a way from the look of the bike as if I was to stick it on the handle bars, or around the gauges...

Enjoy..

These people make very nice clocks. I've got one with a handlebar mount on the 9er. Mounted in the middle of the handlebar. Clock matches the gauges. Looks good.

Okay, back to fork braces.

Nope.

It's a fool who looks for logic in the chambers of the human heart.
