This fork brace has been designed & manufactured inhouse from high grade aluminium and is available in a variety of finishes.  This period style brace is ideally suited for those doing restoration projects, cafe racer builds or custom creations, taking over where the micron brace finished and adding our own unique style.  These braces are designed to be easy to fit and give the desired amount of stiffness back into the front end, helping with cornering and high speed wobbles. Our braces come highly polished or black anodised with a variety of logos engraved and stainless steel screws are provided.

This Z1000/KZ1000 A1 brace has 56mm leg clamps with 185mm (Arched Top Plate) stanchion centres and external style dust caps. 

There are three types of brace for the Kawasaki Z900/Z1000/Z1 - The best way to verify which brace is correct for your bike is to lift the dust caps as this is where the clamp sits and this will be either 56mm or 60mm (if measuring the circumference with a soft tape it would be 176mm or 188.5mm).
Next is the mudguard height -  if you put a flat edge across the mudguard the measurement to the leg where the cap fits will either be 15mm or 42mm.
Please note that the last one has large round reflectors on the sides of the fork legs believed to be 1973 – this uses the higher arch as the mudguard is deeper.

56mm leg clamps and 185mm stanchion centres arched top plate (15.5mm arch)
60mm leg clamps and 185mm stanchion centres arched top plate (15.5mm arch)

60mm leg clamps and 185mm stanchion centres arched top plate (42mm arch)

Three piece motorcycle fork brace (Stabilizer) consisting of two leg clamps and a top plate that is designed to help alleviate twist and wobble on the front end of your motorcycle, this should also help with front end feel when cornering.

Fitting Instructions

This motorcycle fork brace is designed to be fitted by a competent person, if you are at all uncertain please contact your local motorcycle garage. For those that are confidant here goes

To fit this brace to your motorcycle first of all raise the fork dust caps (where fitted) as the brace must not be fitted over these, place the leg clamps around the top of the fork leg by removing the M6 Allen head screws (5mm Allen key required) put around the stanchions and lower into place on the fork leg. Screw these up lightly so you can still move the clamp on the fork leg but try to keep the gap as even as possible each side, once both leg clamps are in place put the top plate on and align up with the screw holes. These take the M6 x 20mm button head screws (4mm Allen key required) and again put all four screws in and lightly tighten so you can now line up the leg clamps and top plate so all is even and square, all the screws can now be tightened and the order would be the leg clamps first then the top plate.

 Torque setting for M6 stainless bolts are in N-m 8.7 Dry or 7.8 lubricated
