Exclamation fork tie downs?

Please help me I'm looking for some tie downs that attach to the front forks and tie down the shocks, So there is no play in the suspension.
I am a drag racer in Denver Colorado and have been using a regular Nylon tie down strap that I would run over the triple clamp and down to the brakes, Worked fine untill last week when I was in the second round and the strap broke! So I would rather not us this method anymore!
A friend told me you could buy clamps that fit to the front forks on both sides that would do the same thing only safer!
I know I could lower the front end, but I also ride my bike on the street.

Yes.........Lower the fork tubes. BUT, this will change the machine input through the bars on the street. Other geometry changes MUST be checked and/or CHANGED.

As for the strap issue, I have not seen anything other than the nylon straps. Sorry


Hope This Helps!
