I have done this a few times to my forks. See the brace across the top and bottom,, measure scribe and cut a couple out and tack it below the top plate. It works good on these sketchy disposables. And is out of sight!

Jeremey reinforced his stock maxi forks by welding extra material on the bottom triple tree plate

Yes, it's in the first pic. ^ But that is still relying on the top plate bolts to hold the twist.

When i did my maxi forks i completely boxed in the bottom tripple tree. I welded a plate up top like yours but mine is vertical. I like how you did your upper support, next fork i do im stealing that.

Re: Reenforcing stock forks.

yeah this works awesome for tomos forks, i've used a piece of round tube mitered on either side, but this probably works just as good with a lot less work.

maxi forks don't seem to need it as bad, i think the upper tripple stamping is tighter fitting and holds the tubes better.
