  • Can 2" make a difference?

    Ask your wife. :)

    The answer is YES.

    Split the front apart and whacked 2" off the WG springs. Result: 2" lower, decreased rake and trail, better cornering, and went from 7.5 to 10wt fork oil. No packing, ample travel, floaty front feel and no bottoming out.

    Do I recommend it for everyone? No...

    32* front rake on most HDs.

    28* on a Dyna, pre-frame change.

    1999 WG front fork and triple tree in use.

    My results are good, but yours may vary.

    After:
