The factory front suspension includes a device called the compliance pivot assembly. The assembly consists of an upright member that secures the front control arms. This member pivots and is dampened by rubber bushings to absorb shock to the chassis to improve rider comfort. Besides the rotational movement, the rubber bushings allow inwards deflection of the front control arms which leads to dynamic toe change during load. These clamps fix the upright assembly into place decreasing toe change during braking and cornering which improves handling and stability with out noticeable decrease in ride comfort.
Installation is easy, and can be accomplished within a half hour. High grade mounting hardware is used. 10mm socket cap bolts use special zinc plating for a high durability and high strength finish (will not corrode like black oxide bolts).
