Default Highball triple tree question?

Does anyone know if 2009 vegas 8ball triple tree will fit my highball frame and my forks. If so is the 8ball more narrow for a 21 inch wheel and fender to fit ? Thanks

What do you want the triple tree for? 21" wheel fits just fine on your HB... You want a wider 21" rim than the Vegas has to offer. Vegas handles like a POS compared to the highball. You can 21" an HB and not even change the bobbed fender.

Thanks for the reply back. I bought a set of wheels off a 2004 vegas and I just decided a triple tree off a vegas would be easier to fit that wheel then spacers for the rotor and caliber . For me it was cheaper then buying a new wider front 21wheel

Hmm... Why didn't you just buy a Vegas? Lol. No seriously though... Do you love the way your HB handles?

say you better just put wheel on. If I read parts finch right they both use the same spacers.
Spacers would be 100% cheaper than triple trees

Yeah, I've gone the other way, fitted a fat 18" off an XC to my 2010 Vegas, handles netter than the 21", not that theres anything wrong with a 21", they're mainly just for looks though.
They'll swap straight over using same axle and spacers.
Fill out your signature so we know exactly what you got.
Later Vegas and HB etc. All had wider triple trees than my Vegas, I've measured them, tell us what year etc yours is.
