Fork brace

Post by DAFFEY »

Anyone know who sells a Fork Brace for a 1986 NS400 :?: I've tried the usual E Bay site here in Canada but nothing came up :?

Do you think the NS needs a fork brace? :?
If it ain't broke, fix it 'til it is.

My NS400 front end is a 1972 Kawasaki SE3 frame :)

A tip is to use "tapered bearings" that can improve handling.

Torque over the whole register.

It will need more than a simple brace then

I have an after market fork brace made by Daytona right above the fender. I see them occasionally on Yahoo Japan, or on Jamies NSR page.

The original poster was after one a few months back.

Anyways the Telefix No2 appears to be suitable for most of the mid range bikes

How good is it ?, I don't know. A lot say the NS never suffered handling issues straight out of the crate.
