At the time when custom builders realized that a 21″ or 23″ front wheel installed on a Bagger was considerably improving the look of a tourer, they had no other choice than to cut, stretch and re-weld the frame neck to be able to properly fit these over-stock sizes. Always a risky business if you are not a pro trained at modifying frames and a time consuming operation.
Hence the need for a Bagger raked triple tree … Arlen Ness launches the KO or “Kick Out” triple tree kit allowing the use of 21″ & 23″ front wheels by adding 11-degree rake to the bike while still maintaining the proper rake and trail for exceptional handling. No cutting and welding necessary.
KO raked triple tree kit features: • Billet aluminum trees offer 11 degrees of rake to attain proper rake and trail when using 21″ and 23″ front wheels (Stretches the front of bike approximately 5″) • Will not work with factory diameter wheels. • Fits 1997-2012 Harley-Davidson® FLT Touring models (except Road King™) • Complete kit includes aluminum triple trees, steering stem, fork tube extension, fork stops, travel limiters, and everything else necessary for installation • Fairing maintains stock position and do not require angled headlight wedges or special brackets to properly adjust your headlight. • Black anodized finish. • NOTE: FLHX & FLHT require purchase of separate Trim Kit (20-376 [$169.95).
