How hard is this mod to do. I am mechanically inclined and am feeling froggy. I like the raked look of the bikes. YES PICTURES please.. Have fun making your conversion.

Just wondering how much wider is the turning radius when you extend the forks.

The rake on the Honda Sabre 1300CS is;
Rake: 33° (Caster Angle)Trail: 118.0mm (4.6 in.)

When I rode my neighbor's Sabre it takes about a 10 ft radius area to turn it around.

I didn't like that.

I will post pics of the job....as for the new turning radius...Stump could answer that Im sure.
I wont know till its all done. Im still waiting on some more parts before I start the job.
New progressive springs, fork extensions and the fatty upper covers.

They look like this and are setup to run R fork covers if yunt.




As for turning radius. Dont think Ive ever measured turning radius in my life on anything other than if I cant spin around in the area given I stop back up couple feet then roll. :choppersm
