Fork Brace (Stabilizer) for '75 CB360

746 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  jsherwoo
I've removed the front fender as part of my cafe racer conversion to my '75 CB360. As such, I'm thinking the bike could use a fork brace to compensate. The internet has failed me, turning up nothing pre-made for the 360, and barely any posts/discussion about it. I'm still running the stock front forks, which are 33mm. I've found a Tarozzi stabilizer that is specified for the '78 CX500 (which is also 33mm). According to their chart, the CX500 tube diameter is 33mm and the sheath is 56mm. I'm hoping someone with a lot more knowledge of the various models might be able to say whether they would work on the 360 forks? And/or provide guidance on what I should be considering to try to find one?

Fork tube size is pretty much irrelevant. The clamping diameter of the fork tube and the available area to clamp plus the correct distance between fork tubes are critical. The fork brace you showed will be much less forgiving that the OE brace in the correct distance between forks.
I have seen fork braces made for a specific bike that caused stiction so just throwing a part on has a low chance of success.
Couple of suggestions .... use the OE brace and shorten the fender to give the cafe look or take the fender off the brace, clean it up and put it on continue with your flat tracker look.
