    For lack of a better place I'm gonna put this here.
    I ordered an received the stabilizer kit from Sputhe after checking out the various makers of such things it came down to this or True Track and Sputhe just looked better.
    This is the front stabilizer installed. Took about 1 hour to get it on.

    The rear one was the bear. As well as what the instructions said to do, I also had to remove the front muffler and the rear brake master cyl. which of course meant bleeding the caliper once it was put back on. It bolts to the right side of the rear trany mount so you have to remove the stock bolts and put the new ones in from the left side then the other piece goes where the mout bolts to the frame. Took about 4 hours total to install the rear one.

    Can't wait to get it out on the road and see if that squirmy rear end is gone.

    Two hundred miles today most of it solo with about 30 miles heavy load (two up).
    The stabilizers became apparent as I started down the mountain from my house, even at low speeds (45 MPH) there is a marked difference in the way the bike feels in the turns.
    Once I hit the freeway and got up to cruising speed (70-75 MPH) the bike showed what its potential actually is. It was an entirely different ride on a freeway I ride all the time. The bike was rock steady and all the rain groves seemed to have vanished. I had to give the handlebars a little shake to make sure they still turned. At higher speeds 85-90+ the bike was as steady as while cruising. I's like I got a new and better motorcycle for the price of a set of stabilizers.

    I got mine from Dr. V-Twin for $335. but I also ordered my T-max from them at the same time so they gave me a break off the list price of $365.

    Thanks a lot! Now I have something else on the wish list! The list is growing faster than funds to satisfy the list.
