Trying to think up how to run steering stops on my girder so the front end doesn't flop around but i cant find much on the internet. Anyone have any know how on this? Or a different way to get the same results? Thanks.

Super simple one I did a few years ago. This is on a springer but it might help.

I used an internal one you can buy a kit

Did you have to drill your lower tree for the stop? Not sure i get how it mounts to the lower tree.

This is what I was going to recommend as well. I just swapped a Springer on my Sporty and that's one of the options I'm considering.

Just check eBay or Google for "neck bearings with internal stops" - never hurts to change out the neck bearings when you got the front end off anyways.

Cheers,

I really don't like the look of chains, but thanks for the reply. For those of you with internal fork stops, whats the hole and pin for the lower race cup for?

The pin is what is keeping the cup from spinning in the frame neck.
Those tiny roll pins just don't last. Even the ones with like, six pins still snap.
You could always tack weld the lower cup into the frame...

That's what i figured. Where does the pin hit though, to keep it from spinning? I haven't looked at the frame yet, but if they weren't setup like that from the factory, i'm not sure what it would hit to stop it.
