Strapping front end

Hey guys,
I was curious to where I would buy a strap for the front end. Im going to be running my bike and I figured if Im buying leather pants I might as well order a strap too.
Thanks
Raini

I used regular rathet tie downs(walmart) and used the wheel fairing holes to put in the hooks (ACE).

You can get straps made for that purpose through Schnitz racing.

Yeah I was thinking about taking a normal tie down adn throwing a few grommets in it to bolt to the brake caliper like they do on the others that are made. I am getting really ancy I want to see what this bike runs but dont want to get kit out of great lakes. I heard they are quite anal when it comes to the front tire coming off the ground

Thanks for all the replys so far

Any local motorcycle shop will have them. Our local honda has them in stock. There should be a few shops up your way that has them.
