I am about to put a raked triple tree on my 2005 vtx 1300c. I am debating between 6* or 8* triple tree from Vtxreme, also putting progressive 10.5's on the rear does anyone have any advice, or pros or cons on either. Any info would be appreciated.
Also any info on changes these make to how the bike rides, handles and turns.

Thanks.

No first hand experience, but from what I've read here at the cafe, *8 trees are designed for trikes and are dangerous on a two wheel bike....Lot's of variables, as the front wheel diameter comes into play also...Need to keep rake/trail numbers within the acceptable limits, or the bike will be a death trap...6* trees are designed for two wheels...Best bet is to contact cafe member Stump...He'll be able to answer all your questions...

+1 on getting hold of Stump. He's the man when it comes to that kind of stuff.

Those trees are high quality and I run them on mine. Do your homework from credible sources first and learn about what it does to the geometry of your ride before you change it and unexpected things happen.

Feel free to write me for my all positive experience. Same bike, similar idea back two years ago.
