    You're headed in the right direction, what size frame do you have? My bike actually looks lower now than it did with the stock forks on it. Plus my frame is a 17in frame, so I guess that helps make it look lower

    If you are just riding the only thing I can think of would be the fork isn't sitting in the headset correctly...

    Re: Bike wants to pull to the right when riding.

    Just when Im riding. I have a disc brake, and its mounted on the left, so braking isnt an issue.

    Ok well first off if u can ur goin to want to elevate ur bike.... On a bike wrk stand would be best but ive used a couple of latters and a 2x4 if one isn't available lol...
    Then I would just turn the handler bars back and forth to c if there are any stiff spots.... Also check for play as if it weren't tightened enough.. If it is one of thoes things I would take it apart regrease the bearings and make sure that when reassembling make sure its straight in the head set while and during tightning it back down... Also it might be easier if the frame was flipped upside down... Hope this helped a lil

    Ok, Thanks for the info. i did regrease the bearings when I installed the springer. The forks rotate super easy. As far as play in the headset, there is none. could it be that the wheel needs to be trued? it does have a little wobble to it.

    I guess it could be un tru..but also now that I think of it I may have read some where that the springer fork does have a wobbly feel to it. I'm not sure...but there are tons of threads out there that can help, try doin a custom google search at the top off this fourm
