need a little help with some urgency...
I'm thinking of getting a set of springer for my build, now I know DNA aint great as i've read some reviews, but its what I can afford now and a set came up real cheap and brand new.... and over here in the UK its hard to find springers at a decent price..
Problem is.. im not too sure if the set I found will suit my build?
this is a pic of my bike..
the way its sitting the front is higher than the rear... should it be like this or should it sit straight?
as it is, the rear (where the jack is) is 5,5" from the floor (bike lift) and the front, roughly before where the bend starts sits at 7" from the floor.
If I measure from the bottom tree to the spindle it measures 21,5"
I asked the guy who has the springer forks to measure it and its 22" from bottom tree to spindle.
Looking on a website this means he has a 2 under set. as the website says that for 2 under it measures 22"
But i dont know much about geometry and all that and need to make a decision asap...
if its ok for the bike to sit as it is, then I guess the set he has is alright? as what I have measures 21.5" and the springer he has is 22"?
but if the bike should sit lower at the front then I guess I should really get a 4 under, as the website site says 4 under measure 20"?
thanks for any help!
sorry... 2 very newbie questions from me on the same day!
