Default Re: Question on Installing a Springer Front End.

Yes cut it with a hacksaw and lots of oil or band saw . Before you cut anything ,be sure you have the springer fully assemballed on the steertube .
Tighten all the steering pieces that you will use as if you were installing it for the last time . Then mark the spot to cut with a partial cut through the threaded section sticking out the top . Disassemball the components and secure the tube in a vise ,use a cloth or padding to protect the chrome . Now this is most benificial , thread the nut back on the steertube past your cut mark and leave it there until your done cutting . Then turn the nut back off using it to restore the starting thread at the cut you just finished making .
