2021xt 650 fork brace?
« on: September 12, 2021, 09:36:09 »
Morning all, does anyone have fork brace fitted to the latest 650 model? Are there any significant improvements in handling? I know they were sort off necessary for earlier models, but struggling to find any info on the latest one. Currently looking at the cosmo one. Thanks!

Not convinced they were necessary on earlier models.
And I thought the new bikes had the same forks.
Some swear by them, some fit them then remove and sell them on after no time.

I've had one fitted to my 2012 (Gen 2) for a few years now and I'm the same as Rusty...not convinced it has made any difference. In my head I think it does, but maybe that's just to lessen the pain of forking out (sorry about that) £50 for it!!  :thumb:
