That is a "steering damper".
Totally different reason for putting one on.
BUT, This would cure highway shimmy better than a fork brace.
Fork brace stabilizes and equalizes EACH leg to react the same.
Steering Damper slows violent shaking caused by rapid deceleration while in a turn(like on your Ducati Kaz)
V-Rod does not really need a steering damper to go straight.
Just more of my rambling!

Kaz,
You are a special situation.
You have a massive load shift with the horsepower your scoot produces.
But , you know what I mean with how each are used and I actually think you would benifit from using both.

Kaz,
Be nice, I am a Carman , not a conductor.:whack:

I used to know/hang occasionally with a racer who was a Ducati privateer in the 90's. I was even a "citizen" sponsor of his . Which meant I got to feed him when he was at Road America. What an honor.:spit:
He crashed bad and his racing career was done. Watched/learned alot
