*Not compatible with the 2020 CRF1100L*
Customers demand lighter weight bikes, especially in the ADV bike segment; manufacturers do their best to deliver. To keep the weight down, thinner gauge metals are often used and gussets can be few and far between. This can lead to parts that aren't up to the task. The Africa Twin's windscreen mounting bracket is one of these parts.
At the top of the Africa Twin's windscreen mounting bracket is a 13mm metal tube. It's well placed and perfectly sized to mount a GPS. Unfortunately, if you attach your navigation unit to this tube, you're likely to snap the welds on the frame. The replacement part is expensive and it requires complete disassembly of the bike's front end.
After 8 versions and several months of testing, our frame brace is ready for prime time. It provides support to the bike's stock bracket to ensure it doesn't crack from metal fatigue when used on rough roads.
It's constructed of 13mm solid 6061 aluminium round stock and TIG welded brackets and clamps. The assembly is powder coated for a great look now and well into the future. Designed for a GPS but strong enough for a full load of rally navigation gear too.
-No permanent modifications to your bike
-Strong and lightweight
*The standard Batzen windscreen adjuster is compatible with our brace but the Batzen adjuster with the built-in GPS mount is not*
