Well, earlier today... I put out my feelers for those extended fork nut covers L&M is making and got some good idea's from no_fury. One of those idea's was to contact VTX-treme and see what they had to offer. Well, since my phone number is in every e-mail that I send out, I got a call from Daryl Hoksbergen, the Man in charge there at VTX-treme.
He said that he was and has been interested in making parts for the Fury, but hasn't seen the market surge from the Fury riders, at least in his area of the country or on his website, for those particular parts.
Well, we talked for about 20 minutes or so... here's what we came up with:
If somebody is willing to loan him the top fork nut caps
(probably have to stick a rag into the tubes), also the top and bottom Triple Tree units, along with the bearings, stem... the whole thing
, they are willing to discount you on the new parts which they are going to work out. (probably a good 10-20% or more discount on the brand new, first run parts) They are also wanting to do some headlight adapters as well, so... if you want to send them too, that would work out great...
This is what he was offering:
Additional 3 inch extensions (fork nut extensions) and a new triple tree rack, with an 8º rake on it (we currently have a 6º rake on our bikes).
I am thinking of doing this, but as most of you know, I love my bike and ride it just about daily (bout to get might paint job tho, so... we'll see). It will be about a month that he will need this stuff for, so it would be some down time. If you have your bike apart already, this might work out for you...
Or, if you live in his area, my benefit you more to do this...
Here is his contact number and location, all I ask is if you do take this on, to let the rest of us know, so we can look forward to the new product, also not bother him with a butt ton of calls after we figure out who is going to do this...
He sounds like a nice guy, with a couple of neat stories (specially bout the Fury Tree's)... So, here's his contact number:
