Looking good, was there any change in steering at slow speed, what gain in height of controls, and push back. Did it change rider position. I know you only pick up 1/2 in, but ???
I havn't riden it much but I really didn't notice any change in the steering. It doesn't change height or pullback on the bars, so there isn't any change in riding position. It raises the front of the bike half an inch which raises you up half an inch. Not really noticeable. They are not risers.

Those of you that have bought these and not installed them yet...

You have to loosen the top pinch bolts before you can unscrew the fork caps. The L&M instruction do not mention this. The fork caps WILL NOT budge until you do this.

I'm confused, so they raise the front of the bike....is that soley for looks or performance or both? I wish there were pics of the whole bike from a side shot before and after. Whats the advantage to these things?

It is more for looks than anything. If they were longer (2" or 3") it would be much more noticeable. I bought them in lieu of getting fork nut covers. I like the cleaned up, minimalist, look on the trees.

They look good and really clean up the top tree. Nice job Mobe and thanks for the photos.
Thanks Dave!

Did you use the 43mm or 49mm turn signals?
I bought the 49mm

Penny Pincher method of LED Turns

The LED turns looked sweet. I did something similar to my Kingpin before they had the nice chrome units. If you can't afford the $250+ for the manufactured ones you might consider this option. You can order the LED strings, insert them into clear rubber tubing that is cut to fit and slip a zip tie in behind them. Run your wires(or have someone run them for you) and just cinch down the zip tie around the forks. Clip off the excess zip tie. The LED's will be protected and shine very brightly. Admittedly it won't be as spiffy as the LED's in the chrome housings but depending on the LED cost, probably 1/5th to 1/4th the cost and will still look way better than the clunky OEM turns. :)

I might try to attempt to wrap my LED's around my forks while I am waiting for my bike to get painted... The "LED for beginner's thread", to see if those will work wrapped, might save some people some cash here, since it only cost me <$100 for the install that I did...

great idea

Guess I should qualify myself. I just purchased my fury Saturday. I had to sell my Kingpin last summer when I was laid off. Back now and really looking forward to the Fury. I threw out the idea on the LED's cause I figure a lot of guys are like me who can't just go buy every piece they want to add. :)

Quick note: the clear tubing was result from trial and error with using an epoxy or glue to try and hold the LED string on directly to the forks. The heat of the summer would just cause the glue to lose it's adhesiveness and I broke one of the strings when bending it to far around the forks. So the tubing also helped from bending the LED string too much.

I would love to see other methods and suggestions so I think the new thread "LED for Beginners" is an excellent Idea.
