Well for 3years Howard at Motorcycle Metals has been designing triple trees for dressers with 41mm forks so he could install his triple trees , 49mm forks and 30mm fully adjustable cartridges like he has done for years on Dyna's . 17 weeks ago I dropped my bike off to him for what we thought was a 2 week install and set up of his first set . He ran into unforeseen issues and yesterday 3/1 I finally went down to Miami from Tampa to pick my bike up . I will give a complete review and write up shortly but I can tell you these things are sweet .

I now have a few thousand miles on the new set up . I can say without hesitation the front end made a bigger difference than anything I've done to my bike. With Howard's kit I installed his triple trees that hold 49mm forks , 49mm forks for the 2014 bikes and 30mm fully adjustable cartridges. The bike corners and handles so much better but I knew it would , what surprised me the most is the difference when just riding down the highway. The front end is so smooth it is sick , I will hit something in the road and do not feel it at all in the front end but will feel the bump in the ass end when it goes over it.

Sounds like a great set up. Is Howard going to make the kit available? I don't see it on the website.
