    A fork brace helped on my 1000G, with the caveat that if not done correctly it can certainly make it worse. Also, not sure if one exists for that model.

    I did this bracing on mine over a decade ago, so specific memory a LITTLE fuzzy. I think B, C, and E are 1/4 plate steel. It's essentially a gusset. I also had to delete tubing A and replace with a...

    Jetting for Velocity stacks vs K&N Pods

    Tried a search, and got some info, but not the specific answer I am wondering about.

    Just a quick "for future reference".

    The trick to getting a stuck rear master apart (frozen piston) is a 1/8 grease nipple. It threads right on and then use the grease to push the piston out.

    Progressive suspension used to make rear shocks for those bikes. Not sure if they are still available or not. I bought a pair about a decade ago. Its a decent upgrade that keeps the original look.
