Well I love my pipes but they are scraping and I'm not sure what to do about it. I can post pictures this evening if anyone wants to see but I can't turn right. That is, I can't lean very far to the right. So far its only been an issue going slow on tight turns but I'm sure it'll be an issue going down back roads. What can I do?

What pipes do you have? Probably need to change pipes. I have Cobra Swepts and with the mountain twisties here in Colorado, I have scraped mine as well and my bike isn't even lowered! I have too much invested so I just am very careful taking corners and slow down.

They are after market pipes, Hard Krome. I've also lowered the bike with the L&M spring. Really think the fork extenders will help, I'm not sure how.

where are the pipes scraping? front or back? also remove the ride side cover and tighten the preload shock all the way to the right.

also consider the 8 degree trees because they come already with the 3" extenders.
if in the future you want to go this route you don't spend money twice

I haven't really decided but I dount it, given the cost. I'm not really sure what the advantage is to the 8 trees. I'll probably give the extenders a shot a the next few weeks.

Hey pigsnatcher! Just to let you know, I just installed my 3" fork extenders and did not replace the brake line. I just rerouted the line behind the trees and turned the bracket around that mounts the line to the bottom of the trees. If you have any other add-ons such as handle bar risers or the 8* trees then you most definitely need to replace the line.

Just so you know - I am really happy I installed the 3" extenders! Love what it did to my bike.

Also, if you are considering the 8* trees keep in mind that the added angle of the dangle will negate some of the lift you get from the 3" fork extenders. I've attatched the chart so you can compare. Just throwing it out there for you to keep in mind! Good luck!

So the L&M spring was in the low position, I raised it about half way and took a ride. I didn't scrape. Not sure if that had anything to do with it or not but it was the first time I didn't scrape. So the higher I go will the bike become more firm/less bouncy????
