If you are using the stock forks, the brace will help stiffen it up. Most serious SV racers will opt for the GSXR front end with all the adjustability it gives.

I don't recall seeing any of the fast SV racers using a fork brace, and like Bubba (he's one of the "fast" SV racers) said, you won't need one.

Brandon Spradling rode on a "stock" SV front end, and he is probably at least one of the fastest on an SV anywhere around here.

Very few folks use the GSXR front end, I personally like them a LOT and if (when) I get another SV, I will put my spare front end that is in my shop on it!

The fork brace will cause chatter more often that fixing it.
