I was wondering if anybody knows what size forks i have on my 01 super glide, and if i had the same size Tripple tree from a wide glide can i put my tubes on them? thanks Kim

Best thing is to get a dial caliper and measure them. If I had to guess, I'd say 39mm. Depending on the year of WG triple trees, they could be 41mm, 44mm and I think you can get 39mm WG triple trees from Seeger Cycle.

pretty sure your 01 has the same frontend as my 02 did and it had 39mm fork tubes , the wide glide had 41mm in 02 , I know it doesnt sound like much but everyone I talked to said not to try my tubes in Wide glide trees, also I believe the wide glide legs are longer than your super glide legs which would throw your trail off affecting handling.

that makes sense, i will probably have to go to a whole front end or go back to my orginal plan and just go with the 21" wheel on my forks. thanks Kim

triple trees

you can get triple tree conversion kits from vulcan engineering for a good price, put a nice mid glide on my 06 sporty, chrome is nice everything included in kits
