  • Stiff bar install ?? How to??

    hi guys

    ive a sv1000 with a stiff bar on the front suspension ..... i noticed it stutterd when pulling up on slow braking ... so i took the bar off and problem solved ???

    i want it on their .. cause they surley will make a differance in the twisties ..

    question is... when in stallling ... should the bike front end have weight on it ? "rear racestand set up" .. so both shocks have even weight

    or with the front end of the ground .. via handle bars rope and strong shed beam ??

    any way .. cheers for any help !!

      its a bar that goes between the shocks ... on non usd model bikes that aids front end stifness
      just look up "super brace"

      its an aftermarket mod on my bike 06 sv1000

        put it on just tight enough to hold its place then grab the front brake and rock the bike back and forth, compressing and extending the forks. After doing this a few times the brace will have found its own alignment. Tighten it up to the correct torque and ride.

            took it off to give it a polish initialy .. chrome finish and all... and as i did. 2 of the 4 bolts had worked them selves half out!!!!...

            so out of curiosity i took it for a spin. see if id notice a differance .... and the whole brake stuttering thing had gone...

            apart from that i didnt notice mutch differance ... but givin the bikes main use is a hoon tool .. cornering was never high on the things to sort .. but i will put it back on .. as instructed !!! thanx! and see how it goes !!

              In future i suggest the term Fork Brace instead of stiff bar so people will know what you are on about, stiff bar I was expecting some responses that were moving way to fast for prime time.

                    Well, first you need to ensure adequate lubrication. I usually find alcohol helps when I'm installing my stiff bar...
