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!

I'm not an expert but I would think that would make the front to stiff. The font end is designed to flex and if it's to stiff it it will probably brake something.
