    Who has one and how do you like it...??? I've been on the fence about one, but don't want to shell out $150 + shipping if it doesn't do much.

    Any input is greatly appreciated!!

    I've never used on my Harley but I have installed one on a FJR1300 and the difference it made when you were riding hard was pretty remarkable. I would think you would have the same results on your bike.

    Model 5192 or 5192F for your VRSC 2003. $150 is a good price...MSRP is closer to $200 plus. HD one is $189.00...

    They look and work great. Front forks being long tubes are subject to flex, and the sheet metal brace under the fender does allow the forks to not be parallel with road irregularities. The brace stiffens the fork midpoint between the triple tree and the axle. If you ride hard in the twisties...get it. But straight up at modest touring speeds not nearly as critical. Turn your bar all the way to the left and push gently with your knee against the tire and stop...that flex you feel will easily be half with the brace in place, just do not push too hard.

    I don’t have one on the Harley but it makes all the difference in the world on my Suzuki LS650.

    I have a brace on my 03 FXST and I think it helps the handling. I can fill it in the tight corners. As far as looks it helps with a little more chrome up front.
