Default Another Cartridge Emulator Option

When it comes to the damper rod forks on the cruisers, I've been linking Race Tech's emulators as a way to improve fork action, but I've stumbled across another brand that makes a product that fits the Vics and requires no drilling of the damper rod. It still may require cutting a spacer in the fork though. Anyway, here's a link to a review and one to the mfg:

Check with Traxxion Dynamics in Georgia. They did my 05 Wing and turned into a Sport bike. I am told that they have done a bunch of Victories too.

Check with Max.

Cross bikes already have a cartridge suspension. But surely a place like Squatch mentioned makes a better one. Personally, I haven't found mine lacking in any way yet.

I have been planning on installing RT's emulators on the Judge that I will soon be buying but now this post has me rethinking! The Intimidators are simpler to install but after doing a quick bit of reading, many prefer the RT's because of the adjustablebility. Looks like some more research will be required. By the way, The Intimidators are on sale at the moment which brings them more inline with RT's prices...mmmm!

Cheers

Does anyone know if the kingpin front end will bolt onto the judge ? I know it will on the Vegas, so I'd bet it would on a Judge. Might be a less expensive alternative.

Its expensive swapping a complete front end, Top n bottom triple tree, fork legs, fender, wheel, spindle maybe a tyre/spacers. Brake caliper, disc and brake lines if going from single to dual disc.

A Hammer's front tire also matches the rear of the Vegas. It doesn't match the Judge's.

The odds of the Judge's fender/wheel fitting the Hammer's inverted forks are pretty small.

Anyway, seems to me that the emulators are the far easier and cheaper solution.
