Fat tire Frontend install

Here is the link to the video that was live streamed from the dealership where I work. I can't post the video here because it's 48 mins long. Lol. It does show everything except for the Burly Slammer shocks that I installed on the rear of the bike.

Good video and great job on the work. Even though you didn't use your paint protection. I would have to take 10 points for that one.

Also, the other reason you will scrape the floor boards is that you have decreased your lean angle by lowering the bike but yes the fat tire will feel really stable.

Can you post a link to the parts list for this kit?

Thanks for posting the vid!

No problem. Glad you liked the vid! You are correct about lowering the bike and scraping but I lowered the bike just so you wouldn’t see the fork tube through the notches in the cans. I will get a parts list on Monday when I go back to work.

That price includes everything, ride in ride out, and a single color painted front fender. If you have a CVO or factory graphics, the cost to paint the new front fender is higher.

Here is the parts list that I keep in my toolbox to show customers when they are talking to me about the fat tire frontend. The Talon rim that you see on here is gloss black and pretty close to what a Special wheel looks like, has a Pirelli tire and reuses the black brake rotors.

Really great video. You made it look easy, lol.

I just did this upgrade this weekend. I wanted stock ride height, so I reused the stock internals. Iím not too proud to say that putting those fork tube caps back on with the stock springs and spacer was a pure bitch. My hands are sore as hell.

Pics? After your hands heal up, of course.
