Fork extensions for VTX 1800

I had asked in an earlier post if anyone had used spacers inside the fork to get a little more clearence. Someone suggested using spacers sold by VTX-treme.

Has anyone reading this tried these spacers and if so: 1) how do you like their effect on handling and 2) dow difficult was the installation?

Thanks for your help

I've used them, they are a simple install, but no reason to use them unless you add raked triple trees.

Progressive fork springs........they help prevent scrapping the pegs by lifting the front of the bike.

You're running 2" extensions right? 6* trees?
