Front end

I have an interesting question. A friend of mine who is rebuilding a R75 BMW into an awesome steet bike showed me a neat trick. He put a spare lower triple tree fork brace (with stem and excess metal shaved off) on about halfway between the working lower triple tree bracket and the fender bracket/brace. I thought this was a neat idea to really make the front end tight and reduce flex. He swears that it works and I believe him. Anyone ever try this on their CB350 or is it just not needed if you have a good fender bracket/fork brace?


Ask not what the wanker can do for you, but what you can do for your wanker!

old addage what works on a race machine doesnt always work on the street.Two different alot of things that work on the track dont work on the cams alot of newbies throw in cams in their cars and bikes with out understanding its a comprimise in sacrifice.A cam that works on high end will kill the bottom end ,and vise versa.The factory does do its home work on road machines and everything from suspension to cams are chosen for a WIDE RANGE of conditions .A race bike or race car has two things A narrow and well defined enviroment and engineering choices for its enviroment only (a very narrow range).
Once you start changing and up grading for performance you are making compromised sacrifices ,giving up one one end of the spectrum to gain another end of the spectrum to your own tastes.
