Fork brace for GL1800 air bag?

I see there are a few fork braces for the GL1800.
I seem to find they all say not for air bag models.
What's that about?

Hi Kiwi, The air bag models have crash sensors on the front wheel and the common fork brace will not accommodate the extra wiring going to the sensors. There is a fork brace that I ordered from WingStuff that works very nicely on the air bag models. It is the "Sperbrace" Air Bag Model Superbrace w/Fork Protectors Mirror Polished Aluminum for GL1800 Air Bag Models. The link is below. Hope this helps.
Bob.
