I just found preload fork caps to fine tune the preload and eliminating the spacer all together.👍

Checked Eastern and Kirk and didn't see any that fit road glides. Not familiar with how the newer forks are designed, but mine don't have an open upper clamp to accommodate an adjustable cap. But maybe I'm missing something here.

If the current springs are fine for your loaded weight, why not try thicker oil first?

I've only changed springs on bikes because they were shot or they were not appropriate for my weight or I was going for more adjustability by going with gold valve emulators or cartidges.

I emailed speed merchant this morning and Iíll see what they say. I can see my cap but it looks like it might be a chore to adjust if I had to.

So I called speed merchant and asked a few questions.He said that all Harley 49mm fork have the same thread.The only disadvantage would be we wouldnít have access to the adjusting nut on top of the cap.It was recommended that you make all your adjustments before you put on the cover that has the switch blanks back on. I know on another forum I was offered the race tech kit with gold emulators for $250 shipped but didnít want to mess with the emulators.
