    Default 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.
