it was a gift. you can get one here: http://www.superbrace.com/
I am a lucky dad.
Thanks! I'll put it on my list.
It's a worthwhile upgrade. And, really, no more pricey than many of the other farkles we put on our motorsickles. Especially since it's made by a small company, and there's not much of a market. Well, maybe the W800 crowd will start buyin' 'em pretty soon!
You need to pull your fork gaitors down around the top of the brace to finish the look. I don't have a good picture of my old W with the brace but you can get an idea at the superbrace website.
Here's a link from the site which may help:
The gators fit nicely over the Superbrace. Plus that keeps road crap from getting on the upper sliders and eventually degrading the fork seals.
The gaiters are seated properly down around the top of the brace. If you look close enough you will see that.
One is not like the other.....
Sounds like you may need to adjust your gators dad. Nice ride yesterday though!

Is the black one in the back a T140 ?
Appears to be a modern Hinckley Bonneville T100, pre 2009.
Definitely different mod level !!
(Sorry pics won't post, you'll have to use the link)
Neither are my gaiters. The bottom ripple is a bit distorted; always have been. The seating on my brace is correct.
my gaiters are fine =) here's some more pics.
Now I see why you wanted to move back to the Northwet.
Beautiful scenery and nice ride report.
I recently replaced the original high bars with Kawasaki low bars and Napoleon bar end mirrors. As mentioned before, it was a huge improvement in riding geometry and handling with one exception. More vibration, bordering on uncomfortable. I attribute some of this to the bar end mirrors.
To reduce handlebar vibrations, I went to a local outdoors store and picked up a bottle of "Slinky Maker, 0.300". I'm no fisherman, so I have no idea what this stuff is used for, but it is basically a container full of approximately 1/4" lead balls. Took off a mirror at a time and poured in as many lead balls would fit. The nice thing about these is they are big enough so as not to fall out of the small hole in the center of the handlebars.
Went for a ride yesterday and can say that vibration is greatly reduced, with both mirrors clearer at highway speeds!
Anyone have the following items they would like to unload?
Let me know.
Well, it's a 650 parallel twin, not a smooth 4 cylinder road bike... so you'll always get vibes, it comes with the territory.. Try a 'true" Brit iron such as a Domi or even a modern HD V-twin, you will go back to the W without even noticing any vibrations !! .
