2016 Road Glide swing arm brace

I have a weave on my RGS when entering and rolling through turns at highway speeds.

Been looking at a true track. Anybody put one of these swing arm to frame stabilizers on their Glide?

If you havent done it yet, upgrade your front and rear suspension, it wont be the same bike..I did HD premiums from a 2017, the 13inch version, separate part numbers, not the kit from Jon at Horny Toad HD, and progressive monotubes...cost for parts under 750 shipped. The difference is crazy...mine doesnt float anymore, especially around corners at speed over dips...

Yep. Did it at the same time I upgraded front and rear suspension. Night and day difference from stock. No regrets on the true track, Progressive monotubes, or Super Shox.

I know the pain. I installed progressive front and rear,21" wheel and 47 14" bars. Chased a wobble neck bearings all that crap to find out brand new tire was junk. One new Avon and couldn't be happier to have it back in shape.
