It would make it handle like a camel...Yamaha went to a lot of trouble to get the triple tree offsets just right to give good rake & trail numbers, adding 7 degrees to that will not enhance it any! You have a long bike now (wheelbase), do you really want it to be any longer?LADMarines said:http://www.meancycles.com/Home.asp?...ccCategoryID=2254&CompanyID=0&PartID=0&Event=
What would this do to my bike. I am still learning about these bikes....
Do a little research (use the rake/trail links in an earlier post) and do the maths, it doesn't add up.desertraider said:Mortons has extended their bike out 7degrees and they told me that it actually handles better!
Don't shoot the messenger...I was answering a technical question with some technical facts...desertraider said:The raider and the warrior are different bikes altogether! I hated the way my warrior handled with 7 degree trees but this bike already has that much rake and handles great. Until you ride one with the rake you really can't say how it handles. Call mortons and ask them as i did. They will tell you it handles better. If I lived near them I would go ride it myself.
Well it would not be the first time a company has enhanced the story on a product that they sell. If they did as much research on this as they did the original pipes they made for the raider than I would take that with a huge box of salt. Don't forget the old saying, if it sounds too good to believe it probably is BS.desertraider said:The raider on mortons page is using the mortons 7 degree kit. Call them and ask about it. What they will tell you is almost to good to believe on how that thing handles.
You know what they say: 'If it sounds too good too be true...'. Their pipes don't scrape or blue either, apparently.desertraider said:The raider on mortons page is using the mortons 7 degree kit.
