fork extension

Hey whats up, i would liketo rake my bike the correct way. I notice they dont make fork extensions for this bike. What options do i have, can i swap to something like a sportster front? Or can i use any 41 mm forks?

I would think 41mm is the same no matter what its from. You may need to use the braes and wheel from the donor bike, or use custom bearings, bushing, but should work. Am sure it will affect the handling in some way, but you should already be aware of that.

I think i found a place that extends them. I gotta call and find out. Although different diffent forks might not be a bad option. Im sure the brakes and suspension would be an upgrade lol. The handling would mostly come down to trail which i would adjust for. Thanks

I have seen these, I dont know how safe they are because you I think you would lose some support on the fork not be solid. Thats a valid point too about no threads
