    I noticed after working on the T160 that there is no head steady or cylinder head brace to the frame. The frame has no lug for it and there is no part in the parts book for it? I know the T150’s have the two bracket style ones that bolt to the Intake rocker box as found on some earlier twins. Does anybody know why this was deleted? seems important but maybe not?

    Hi Mark,

    I’ve seen it suggested that the geometry might have made it more difficult to find a good solution. If you visit the Club Facebook page and put “steady” into the search box you’ll come across some recent dialogue about this, which includes a comment about Rob Norths having steadies fitted to both types of engines.
