    Hi all! Quick question. I've had a lot of bikes in the past and this is the first time I've noticed this in regards to my 2002 VTX1800r forks. When I sit down on the bike and as I'm kicking up the kick stand my forks seem to give out and drop 1/2" to 1 1/2". When I get my weight off the bike...

    Hi all. Like the title says, I'm curious as to why my new '02 VTX 1800R is shaking bad when applying decent throttle acceleration. Starts at around 60MPH. Once I lay off the throttle it simmers down. I've owned a lot of bikes including a 1900cc and I've never experienced this. I also notice...

    Starting last summer, I noticed a slight wobble in the steering/handlebars at 40-50 mph, especially on de-accel. It really hasn't been a problem because it was so subtle and went away after 50 mph. The wobble is getting steadily worse... Its bad enough now that I am afraid to take my hands off...

    Hi all, got a sweet deal on a used, but not installed, Woody's batwing with stereo for a VTX 1300. There are no instructions but what needs doing seems clear enough with one exception; getting the tins off the stock forks. It appears as though the top triple tree will neen to come off in...

    Just ran across this web page which I thought y'all might like to read. I'm researching the building of a chopper from an 1800 I picked up for a good price. This part of the research is to help me figure out what I want to do with the front-end. http://wotid.com/tls/content/view/24/53/

    First of I'm a new member, and apologize I can't post the links to the parts I’m describing here. I recently bought a 'Tool Pouch' for my '05 1300-R, and didn’t want to mount it directly to the forks because of rumors of paint and chrome wearing that it might cause. So I began to look for...

    Can anyone explain the difference between exposed and covered forks to me? I own a 2003 VTX 1800C and I've bought a Memphis Shades windshield and the trigger lock kit to go with it but I must've overlooked the part that specified between exposed and covered forks on the kits. And now I'm afraid...
