I seen fork braces for sale on eBay, I have a 80' gl 1100 w/ Vetter fairing.

What does it do for handlingof the bike? Why didn't it come with it from the factory

:waving:The '83 GoldWing was the first GL1100 to come from the factory with a fork brace. The brace adds stability to the forks which equates to better handling overall.

the 1000's had poor front suspension and the braces on them helped make the front end more stable.... not sure what year honda added it to stock
:waving:As I mentioned in my previous post the 1983 GL1100 was the first GoldWling to come stock from the factory with a fork brace.
