Default more detail

Sorry gents, I didnt list the 26 because It just looks to out of proportion to me.

I ride pretty fast, and I want a nice ride going 110 - 120mph.

What is the best rake kit for a 23" wheel?

I am leaning toward the Pickard, I dont like the bagger chopper look, personally. Once again just preference.

Default RIcor

Has anybody tried the Intiminator? I have it on my V-rod, and its the best mod I've done, I am thinking of doing it in place of the monotube?

Thoughts.

Default Looking at the Native Baggers Fat n Low

Saw the yuotube video the glide with the 180 on the front and I was impressed.

Personally, I have the monotubes so I can't comment in regards to the intimidators ride quality and performance. I know FankieB has them in his Road King, so hopefully he'll chime in on this (or PM him). I believe he has compared them to Tracy's monotubes somewhere on the board, if I'm not mistaken

For the record....I love my monotubes....

I went monotube, and it rides perfect, better than stock. 2 pennies.

I run intiminators in two bikes with Progressive springs (don't care for the mono tube kit)and they will transform your front end handling and dive characteristics. On my other ride which has cartridge forks I'm doing Race Tech stuff (springs and valves) and I am waiting ont hat to see how it works out.

For a 23" YOU DO NOT HAVE TO RAKE! We have done out shop Street Glide and it rides great. No high speed wobbles, no issues. Add Progressive lowering springs and lower 1". Use heavy fork oil. Get an extra fork stop and cut it in half and add half to each fork in addition to the fork stop that is already on each fork. Change your fender and ride. No trees, no cutting, no muss, no fuss. A Ron Elkin creation!

Hog Pro, just curious, why don't you care for the progressive monotubes?
