Sounds like you had good results with your SJ triple. I will try my SJ brace on one of my other bikes and play with it until I get it right, if possible. For my R90S with the TT triple, it was a simple bolt on an go installation (yes, I did use the plate glass and a dial indicator); now, my fork tubes are parallel in both planes. I do like the Glass method of assembling the lower sliders/axle/fender brace, it really makes it all fit together very well. I like the tube fender brace as well. If a fender brace is tweaked in any fashion, then it will mess up all your fork alignment efforts. The Glass lower slider assembly process will reveal any fault with the fender brace and one can attempt to correct it. I have the SJ tube fender brace and it was straight and dimensionally correct, allowing very good alignment of the lowers. In summary, when the fork tubes are PARALLEL in both planes, and the lower sliders are assembled correctly, it all should work together very well.
