I know this is an old thread...... but after a little thought and talking to the folks at Pickard, I think I'm going to buy their 23" triple trees, and install the regular length monotubes. What I hope to accomplish and what I'm told it should do is:
1. Only raise me 1/2" so I'll still have the lowered look.
2. Increase my suspension travel, I'm happy with what I have, but more can't hurt.
3. Improve handling, I already think it handles good, but if it gets even better, no problem.
4. Put my front wheel out a couple of inches..... right now when I hit a big bump my fender sometimes contacts my oil cooler
this will be a big benefit IMO.
I don't know when I'm going to do this Mod, but I just bought regular monotubes this week. I'll be looking for a deal on a 23" tree now, and another bonus, if I do decide to go 23, I'll have the hardest part of the job done.
2010 FLTRX, Custom paint, 107 CI, TS Bags, CM Fury 21" Wheel, too many other extra's to list.
