    Bracing the swing arm?

    Can anyone who has done this mod comment on it? What did the bike do to require bracing of the swing arm and how does it feel after doing the bracing. I would also appreciate some links to sites that do bracing Thanks Firefly ________ Honda Wave series specifications
