I have heard that ProTaper P-3 clamps are pretty good. Offers up to 5 handlebar mounting positions for improved rider positioning. All clamps are CNC machined to precise specifications from the highest quality 2024 T6 billet aluminum. Increases fork clamping area by 30% for improved rider control. Price is around $150-170.

I was looking into getting a set for my Racebikes. They have the top clamp and then the have the top and bottem clamp. I get alot of fork flex from my bike and want to get rid of this.
Years ago, I installed a Telefix fork brace on my 79 GS 1000. It has 35mm forks, and the Telefix fork brace is high quality and really improved handling. http://www.telefix-products.com/stabi/gabelstabi.htm

My Suzuki came with a thin sheet-metal brace under the chromed fender. When I replaced the fender with a fiberglass one, I had less support between forks. The only support between the sliders was at the axle. And like I said, the forks are only 35mm. The Telefix supports the top of the sliders so they move parallel with little or no flex.

Type Telefix in Yahoo or Google and you will see that they were installed on many 70's and 80's superbikes. I don't know if Telefix makes braces for many newer bikes, and I don't know if they need them with their thicker fork tubes. Bought mine from Racer's Supply, but they went out of business years ago. If I had a digital camera, I'd take a picture. The Telefix is black, which matches my frame, tank, and fender.

First question I would ask is what symptoms are you experiencing which makes you believe you've got fork torsion? You have USD forks, no? It's rare that you'd have much, if any flex...

A fork brace is definitely going to stop the vast majority of your torsion, if not all of it, if in fact torsion is occurring...

It is possible that your triples are in fact flexing. Older Gixxers, especially the ones with conventional forks, were known for having a pretty weak upper triple. Hense why there's a Yosh upper triple on my '99 600.

What year is your Gix again?
