Default Re: Springer fork w/ longer steer tube?

Here is what I did to make one lomger: Cut the short one about midway find another and cut off what you need to the right length. Then cut a short piece for a sleve. you cut the sleve length ways take out about 1/8 inch so it fits inside the other two. You drill a couple of holes for roset wleds on the uper part of the sleve and leave about 1/8 gap between the two for weld. If you make sure the lower bearing race is on before welding you don't have to grind the welds all the way down. The preasure points are at the bearings not in the middle.Worked great for me...Curt
