Default Finally

I finally got the switch done! 200/55-17 to 130/90-16. It took a bit of fabricating of spacers and brake caliper mounting, but she is done.

You would not believe how much better it handles!!! I never rode a Wide Glide front end until this bike and thought that the tendency to turn wide was just the nature of a Wide Glide front end. That is not the case, it was that fat back tire. I pulled out of my driveway and instead of fighting to keep on my side of the road, I nearly went into the nearside shoulder! Lots of fun on the road too!

The Apes are off and as soon as I finish splicing a few more wires we will see how she and me like the Bucks!


Well she is all wired up but the weather flat sucks! Soon, soon will take a nice ride and enjoy/evaluate the changes.
