Accutronix, I ordered your grips, forward controls, passenger pegs, and side mounted license plate. Your stuff looks great and I highly recommend it to everyone. What is next? Do you do exhaust, braided lines, steel rear fendors? What is next on your to do list for the Fury?

I have considered trees but I am unsure of the true demand. I have a few questions that may make my decision easier.

What is the current tree rake?

What would you like the tree rake to be?

What do you want the trail to be?

If you need longer fork tubes to get the trail into the range you want, are these fork tubes currently being made?

What price range would you consider affordable for a set of trees?

Would you want the new raked trees the same width as stock or wider?

There is none in the trees from what I can see! The neck rake is 38 degrees and the trail is 3.5 inches. For proper trail I know you can't go lower than 2.5 inches. I think max without doing any harm would be a 3 deg. rake in the trees with a two over front end. If anymore you would have to drop the rear to accomplish proper trail. They don't make a 45 mm tube. Not for Honda anyway. I know I've been looking! I would like to stretch my Fury out make it more of a pro-street instead of a chopper cause the neck isn't as high as I would like it.

Stock width is good enough I think! Don't know about anyone else! A good quality tri-tree goes for what last I paid for mine on my old chopper was I think 525$.

This is incorrect, sorry. There is rake in the trees, I'm thinking the total fork angle is 38 deg.
I am not positive but it looks like about 5 deg. in the trees.
This would make sence w/ the 3.5 trail
3.5 trail is not any too much trail at all on a bike that heavy. too short of a trail is very spooky and should not be taken lightly. The standard vtx's have almost 6 inches if trail, yes they feel heavy compaired to the Fury, but that is what is making the fury so nutral in the turns.

I have thought about doing trees that are the same geomitry as stock, just cleaner looking. I have also thought about backing them up a little (3 deg.??)and giving the bike a little more trail, raising the neck a little.
My thought if someone want's trees is do the math and go to a 23 in front wheel, and maybe lengthen the trail just a bit also.
I will welcome some input here;)

I think some nice billet pieces would look great compared to the cast OEM garbage :D
