Default Touring steering stabilizer

Does anyone make a steering stabilizer for the touring bikes? Have an 07 SG that I would like to install a stabilizer for highway riding.
Had one on my previous metric bike and it makes a large difference on wind wobble.
Any help would be appreciated

There's True Track and another one--Str8Rider or something like that. Do a search here and you'll come up with it.

I've got the RideStr8 on a 2000 FLHTPI, which did improve the rear wheel steering by adding a third stabilizing link to the transmission housing aft of the swingarm pivot. However, I am not aware of any steering stabilizers for touring HDs. No easy way to mount a rotary style like the Scotts or GPR, and because of the fork beer cans, no easy way to mount a shaft style damper. However, with some ingenuity and machining skills, a mouting bracket system could be engineered to affix to a fork tube above the lower tripple clamp. Wouldn't mind one myself.

I've added a True-Track.

I also replaced the oil in my front shocks with SE HD and that has made a big time difference.

Cool

V-Twin Mfg has a couple that may work ( I am going to call them), they have 41mm clamps for the fork tube, and 1 inch clamps for the highway bar. If you have an air baffle under your trees, I believe that has to come off & you cant have lower fairings I understand. I also have an email to a a trike company, they use them on their FLH trikes.. I will keep you posted. I figure this & a rear stabilizer on my 06 SG..she should be tight.

He said STEERING stabilizer not rear stabilizer.
and to answer your question there is only one stabilizer out that I am aware of that actually will help with steering and Alloy Art makes a front stabilizer
http://www.alloyart.com/products/trilink.html
this is said to help improve front end high speed handling.

Doesn't he mean a "steering DAMPER" like those on sportbikes?
That would be NONE of the above suggestions.

How 'bout seeing if Ohlins makes one. I know they're out there for Harleys.

My info is about a steering damper(s). I just didn't use the words.

Great Pic by the way Comfortably Numb.
