AWesome! Thanks for posting.

.................because it look 'racy'  ;)
 We know 360 doesn't need it, I think they handle pretty good for what they are. Never had any headshake even on my 391 with MX bars at 110~120 (but, you can feel the front end gets 'light'' with higher bars, even laying on the tank) With clip-on bars front end doesn't get light but you do know your riding a light bike (plus, mine is way lighter than stock)

Bike is much lighter than stock, and where I ride at home it gets "upset" a lot I've never had a speed wobble on this bike but I've been in a headslapper before and it's not fun, not something I want to experience again.

I found absolutely zero reasons to not have one.
It's a very cheap and easy way to reduce that possibility. And as pj said, it does look cool.


And oh yes the bike does handle great, it's so incredibly predictable  that even when it was upset it just was like being on skis or something just easy to point it where it should go and smooth things out. My hope is with the better suspension and stiffer rear frame, longer swingarm and more power it will be even better

It's a 'tankslapper', headslapper is something completely different  ;)
