Default Fork Extensions

Hi Guy's,

I was hoping someone could put me on the right track.

I have decided to cut the neck on my bike and give it a 7 degree rake instead of buying tripple trees.

Before we do this i need set of Fork Extensions and i have looked every were but can not find anything on the net except in a kit like Morton's and Kewl's.

Does anyone know how i can get a set of fork extensions that will suit a 7 degree rake ?

Cheers
AL

Your bike and your choice, but I might point out that the set up from Kewlmetal has geometry correction built in. This means that you do not have to suffer from the normal raked neck maladies

I'm not an asshole...I just type that way

I did the Kewl Metal 45 degree rake and like it. It was eaasy to install as well. Although their handlebars were another story...

Thanks Zoop,

I sent a email to JP but was advised that they don't stand by Fork Extension applications and don't sell them.

Thanx kevinx,

But as you pointed out, purchasing the Kewl set up there are hidden costs associated with the complete install and i don't really like to have any fatter forks than whats on the bike allready ( 43mm ).

Cheers

Just by chance has anybody who has installed the Kewl or Morton 7 degree set up noticed what the extra length of the fork / fork extension was ?

Just for fun when i was installing the 45 rake, i exteded the forks lik 9". It looked great! But then had to bring it back to reality. The 45 kit didnt include ny extensions, as it pushed the front ent triplebtrees forward, and angled them to 45. So jthere were no actual fork extensions. But maybe the 5 or 7 degree kits actually have extensions?

Look up forking by frank they make fork tubes.
Your bike has a cast metal neck and most welders don't want to touch that and if they don;t have a gig you might not get a straigh line when welding back together. So if you cut the frame tube you will be back to far to get the right rack.
