Heavy oil ( screamin eagle heavy weight ) and they are using spacers in the bottom of forks to limit travel ( most use 2 or 2 1/2 nicks of PVC PIPE) or builders will sell billet spacers ( PVC works just as good) ... I'm going with Trickey Trees 9 degree trees plus heavy oil and spacers....
I've tried heavy oil....different weight oils...springs......different heights.....You need someone to measure you rake and trail.....and go from there.....I've spent a lot of money trying different methods....Believe me...Trust and beleive if you have the correct R & T the bike is like riding a Old deuce and quarter...it rides like a dream.....I rode a 26" with stock springs in the rear (street glide) with the correct R & T, and I couldn't beleive how straight and smooth it was....all the way up to the 120MPH on the speedo.......That's how I know.....BELIEVE ME

Did you have to buy a extended fairing bracket so the forks dont hit the fairing

It saves my new fender from getting hit! I now have around 3600 miles on the 23" with the HHI trees. As long as I'm cruising everthing is find. Once I get over 85MPH a wobble comes in.......(The bike is moving like a S motion). Lower tire pressure...make the bike ride better....Higher tire pressure......makes the bike ride like shit!!!! I found all this out the HARD WAY....... It's all a Science.......If rake and trial are not correct....FA GETTT A BOUT IT!!!!!! Hopefully pickard trees do the job......If not....I will reinstall the stock tress and cut the neck over the winter.....Will keep everyone informed of my findings.........Sorry for all the Delays......My 5 year old is in school and need Daddys help.....and Hurricane Sandy didn't help out either!!!!!! BUT my Bike and I made it through the storm!!!!!!!!!
Keep us posted on the Pickard no wobble trees, I am on the 23" 26" fence, toosons bike is one of the sweetest 23 set-ups I have seen. Good luck
