    Youi aint gettin no help are ya Eric ,, Las I saw they was slicing out the neck getting it where the new position was and then boiler plating with scrap steel till they got the gap filled, you dont probably wanna do that. Them necks is welded in damn pretty nowadays it would hurt me to torch one.

      Raking your Dyna.....

      Well Eric, it all depends on what ya want, a mild rake 3 to 5* can be done with changeing your neck cups or by changeing your triple trees!

      If you want to make a choppa outta her......well son, that requires cutting, welding etc.

      What exactly do you want to do?

      Here's 3 pictures of a major rake job, from 30* to 50*

          I just remembered this, Seegercycle makes a kit that bolts on to your bike that well gives you an instant Chopper! The kit is expensive, about $2000.00 or so, J&P Cycles has em fer sure.

            have been looking at a set-up for a year or so that I would like, 3* raked trees for my fatboy that are drilled and tapped to accept the big headlight naccell that I have. I figure that and +2 tubes would look killa on my scoot

              I think the Dyna neck is similar to the new sporty neck. They are buried up in the frame, and not real easy to cut loose. I think it would look good with a little rake though.

                Eric, to the best of my knowledge you'll want to use the raked trees to get it done...I suggest you do your homework first...Some reports on "post" raking are not favorable. I'm gonna go out on a limb and echo what Iron said. 3 degrees is a good number, and i dont think you would have to much negative handling with that setup..You can get 3 degrees with bolt on trees no problem, and will change the look of the bike dramatically....Perhaps 2 inch, or 3 inch longer tubes to level the bike back out...you dont want the bike to nose dive, as this will destroy the rake and trail handling characteristics of the bike...The builders of the the trees will often times give you the correct tube lengths to "restore" the rake and trail properties of the bike when completed. I would "highly" advise calling them on the phone, and getting those specs "live"....

                Please let us know your setup in order to add it to the tech section-with pics of course....g

                  Well I don't wanna do any cutting or anything for sure.

                  I wanna go 3-5 degrees. So i can do neck cups or trees, I'd like a wider bigger front end like a wide glide. Where can i find these parts? The more complete a package the better. That why i was thinking neck cups since you just pop em in. But I think I'd rather go 5* like a wide glide, in that case where do i get the parts?

                      What about this? I can get 3 5 or 6 degree rake and and amount over I want. What would you guys recommend? Maybe 5* and 4" over? What would keep the hanling similar? I'm no racer or anything, mainly short ride cruising. They say it comes all assembled and ready for installation. Will i need anything ales to do this job? I would love a chromed out slight rake on my front end, then i need a bad ass front rim and a big bullet headlight.

                        Ok, so my motorcycle guy that did my motor says to go with a 6* and 4" over, how does that sound? The brake line should be the only thing i have replace right? How long should i go on that?

                          After You get everything mounted up take a piece of 1/4" vacuum hose,tape it to the master cylinder where the brake pipe screws into the master then route the vacuum hose how You want it down to where the brake piping screws into the caliper,mark the vacuum hose then measure the length from the end to the mark and that should gives ya a real good ideer how long to order.
                          There might also be an extension hose available that You can just add onto Your existing piping/hose.

                            6* and 4 over sounds cool, brake line 4" longer...... Changing tubes or getting a new set of forks?
