OK, since i couldn't really find the answer I was looking for by searching I'll ask it here:

I'm wanting to install a Fork Brace on my 04 Thruxton, but want to retain the Fork Gaters I've already installed. Is SuperBrace the only one that will work with the Gaters?

There are only two braces available that I am aware of - Superbrace and the BC brace. You could have gaiters with both however the Superbrace has one version designed so the gaiters attaches to the brace

Matt,

Thanks I think Norman Hyde has one as well, and it actually looks thinner which would allow my gaiters to be more expanded, but I can't seem to get any measurements from any of these guys...

im pretty sure a fork brace will work with gaiters. superbrace and norman hyde are very close in style and BC looks really good i would go with them

RumRunner, Yes, you are quiet correct I had forgotten about the Norman Hyde brace. I have the BC brace although I think the Superbrace is the best looking brace out there.

I imagine that you found this thread, but if not there are pics.

Thanks for the link, some how I missed that one and it's the one I really needed. I didn't like the look of how crushed the bellows were on the pictures I had seen of JC's, and really didn't like the look of the ones with only 7 pleats. After looking at those pictures I see that JC's are 15 pleats, which look too compressed for me, so I'm thinking mine should be good since they have 11 pleats.

Thanks again.
