Default Wide Glide Rake - Frame or Triple Tree?

Just wondering if the Wide Glide rake is from the frame or the triple tree? I'm about 90% sure its in the triple tree, but wondering if anyone can confirm. Thanks!

Its the tree's. You can verify it just by parking the bike with the wheel straight and stepping back. The rake is pretty visible and you will see the forks are are at a different angle than the frame neck.

Depends on year too...
I know 06 & 07 have an extra 2 or 3 degrees in the neck.

I'm pretty sure it's a combination of both.

As far as I have been able to discover, all the late model Dyna's have exactly the same frame rake per given model year. The Low Riders and Wide Glides have additional rake in the tree's and thats it. Low Rider's have 1.5 degree's and Wide Glides have 2.5 or 3 degree's depending on years. This gets argued about over and over and I would LOVE to see something in writing that states years and total rake, that includes separate numbers for the frame and trees. This I have never found. In fact I have never found one piece of literature that says a 2009 Superglide as an example, has a different frame rake than a 2009 Wide Glide. I wish there was more info.

This is taken as a quote from RBracings calculator. I consider them the expert on this subject. Its helpfull, but not exhaustive>

"Steering Neck Rake: Softail 31 to33 deg. FXRS models 29 deg. FXLR 31 deg. Evo Dyna FXD/DX/DXT 28 deg. Evo Dyna FXDL/DWG 32 deg. Evo FLH 26 deg. Sportster 29.6 deg. Choppers 36 deg to 45 deg. FLH series 26 deg. V-Rod 34 deg. Early Hayabusa 24.1 deg."

"For standard triple trees enter 0 degrees: The FXDWG uses 3 degree trees; V-Rod uses 4 degree trees; FLH series use 5 degree trees. For chassis that have been raked to 40 degrees or more, and too much trail is present, Raked Triple Trees are necessary. Enter the degrees of rake, typically 3, 5, or 7 degrees. "

Ok, what's the part number on each type dyna frame for say...2011? If they are the same from one frame to the next the it's the trees. If the ar different then it could be the frame too. Just my thoughts on it.

On the 06+ WG, most of the rake is in the neck (34* to be exact) and another 2* in the trees. 36* total.
