Accutronix triple trees, Buell XB9r forks/wheel/rotor/caliper/fender, '08 Dyna headlamp, Avon grips, a combination of ARP 12-pt stainless & cap head stainless hardware, Bridgestone 120/70/17 tire. The forks were sent out to Race Tech for their springs, valves, and emulators.MFSB said:I love that front end you have. I really would like more info on that if you don't mind.
Yeah... I was using the oem stock FLSTC mount for trial fit at the time, and it's edge didn't clear the lamp for proper aiming. I fixed that last night.Scrubs said:Headlight may need to be adjusted though; aim looks a little low.
The buell forks look good and I really like the rim parimeter mounted front brake disk. Thats what sets it apart to me.If doing it again I would look into other inverted fork possibilities that are longer... As it sits now getting the bike off the table lift & out of the driveway is difficult. Speed bumps are a no-go...
Definitely!! I have an event at our local S.B.B. on the 29th, then I'm getting into the rear wheel/fender swap and 2" raise for the front.Very nice, be sure to post a pic with the additional 2" up front.
Its been awhile since I measured everything, but... IIRC, the wheel hub measures approx. 9" wide, the swing-arm measures approx. 10.5" inside width, & the caliper bracket measures approx. 1" or so... Doing the math... #[email protected] Then there needs to be a custom sprocket, custom rotor, custom axle sleeves to fit with the bearings, etc. And I'm still not too sure on the exact fitment yet! It's an expensive experiment, that's for sure!Looking good K!
How hard is that wheel gonna be to get fitting correctly?
