    Since my last posting re that brace I’d fitted, I didn’t like its looks much or its extra weight to the suspension and have now discarded it.
    Instead I’ve made both brake calipers “full floating” on their 10mm bolt mountings which has solved the “loss of pedal” problem on hard right hand corners, completely, and the whole system is now working perfectly under all conditions.

    Since my last posting on these leading legs, I’ve abandoned that lower brace because of the extra weight and its poor looks, with a perfect brake mounting system. That is, full floating mountings for the brake calipers. The brakes now work perfectly under all heavy right or left-hand cornering driving.
    The legs have since been approved and certified by our State Transport Department engineers.

    DMC sidecars have produced some leading legs for the BMW RnineT

    It looks like they have also used it to get a little more ground clearance.
