Nice looking bike Brian. I thought I had put every thing I needed on my 07 wing and now you put your 09 on and I see I have some more improvements to make. Tell me about the fork brace, not sure what it does.

Brian,

How did you mount the Aux Power outlets in the Trunk? Can you possibly post a "closeup" of how you mounted it?

The brace was installed as part of the full Traxxion upgrade I had Hatfield Motorsports install prior to delivery.
I included the picture as a lot of people have not seen the Black anodized version of the brace...........looks nice against the Candy Black Cherry color IMHO.
Here's what Traxxion says about it.............

Traxxion Dynamics wrote:
Traxxion Dynamics has now engineered and manufactured a Gold Wing specific fork brace. The Traxxion Fork Brace is designed to increase the rigidity of the forks with out creating any additional stiction. The Fork Brace is designed with special slotted centering holes so it is all but impossible to put the forks into a bind. With a typical two piece design you can not allow for machining tolerances which can lead to very high levels of stiction, worn bushings, and premature fork seal leaks. You will have less flex at parking lot speeds and additional stability on the highway.

Larry, I sent the OEM rims off to Classic Components and had them chromed. I removed and reinstalled everything myself except for the tires.

I purchased the power outlets at the local fleet store...........it included a small bracket. I used 3M industrial double -sided tape to secure them to the front wall of the inner trunk. They aren't moving! :wink:

THAT is beautiful, Brian! Makes mine look pretty boring! :razz:

Did those fork guards come with the fork brace? I want that. When I had my Traxxion setup done the fork brace would not allow the guard to be mounted and Traxxion didn't have an answer to it at the time.

I really like the Gerbing outlet setup. I was going to do the same thing when I finally get around to purchasing the gear. You gave me a nice example of how to do it. :thumbup:

The fork guards were extra but work as an integral part of the fork brace........very high quality and looks nice in the Black anodized color. They mount between the side clamps and the middle brace portion...........nice design IMHO.


btw -

Here's a couple of pictures I forgot..........

Coolant protector

Traxxion supplied the guards?

I want that. There's no fork protection without it. I sent them an email.

Thanks. :D

Well done, Brian! Are you using illuminated fuses in your fuse block? They're very handy for troubleshooting, especially in the dark confines of the trunk or at night.

You used to be able to get them from West Marine - I know you can also get them from Waytek Wire.
