Re: texas pete
here is something i did to my springer forks, one i haven't seen around necessarily. It made the springer much stiffer. Didn't take out the lateral flex but it did help a lot. I took 5/16" all thread and sandwiched washers, lock washers, and nuts against the fork. Loc-tite and its good to go. And i am aware of the spring screw being all the way in. I was seeing what the front end would look like laid out a little bit and wanted to see how it handled with a stiff front end.
