Noone makes raked trees or "long" fork extensions for the Fury... yet.

L&M has their 1" extensions but noone has made "long" ones yet.
There is another maker with some more extensions on the way besides VTX-treme... Also, hopefully somebody volunteers there bike to VTX-treme tho, to try out their longer forks and extensions that they have planned for our bike. As I said, I might do this myself, I just have too many projects that I'm working on with this bike now to realistically try it.

Fury has 38* rake stock (32* in the neck and 6* in the trees).


Lowering the rear and extending the front is only good for 1-2* additional degrees.
Interesting, thanks for the info. Although I like it just the way it is it would be interesting to see someone do it and what it would look and I'm sure someone will try it in the future.

I am not willing to compromise the ride and handling for this type of look. I want a bike that I can ride on a Saturday afternoon for 100 miles and not something I pull out of the garage and go to Hooter’s to park, then ride back home. IMHO, the bike gets shaky above 80-85 mph. I would hate to have a bike that I couldn’t go over 65 without it getting loose.

Like with most things there is a wrong way to do things and a right way. My bike has 46-47* of total rake with 5" of trail. I can do 115+MPH with it verified with a GPS. It would be stable at greater speeds but that's only as fast as the bike will go.

I could not have said it better, Clueless, and I couldn't agree more!

Cheers
Depending on the application and how you are with riding a bike like that it isnt a really bad idea. I think the way the bike sits now it isnt bad, maby a couple degrees more and a couple inches of stretch to compensate to give it an edgier look, but it will affect handling which right now this bike isnt much worse than a regular cruiser which makes it one of the more attractive production "choppers" for using as a daily rider
