    Anyone use a fork brace on their bike for extra support? For example super brace.

    Maybe I should explained in more detail. I have an 06 Pitbull 8k miles forks already need rebuilt and was wondering if something like https://superbrace.com would help to reduce torsional fork flex, speed wobbles, etc. I would like to know if anyone else has considered or used something like this to provide better support.

    I have an 06 pitbull and don't experience flex or wheel wobble, when you say high speed what do you mean these aren't sportbikes

    Most likely your fall away is not right.

    The neck bearings should be OK on those miles... I replaced mine around 18.000 trying to get rid of slow wobble on curves around and over 100 mph on my K9. Consensus on the site was that the problem is me being an idiot...
