    Default Springer Fall-Away/ Fork Stop Travel

    Hey All!

    I have a 2004 Softail with a Moto-Iron stock length springer.

    There are no fork stops other than the metal of the frame to the metal of the springer. I have never owned a springer and what concerns me is the amount of swing I have from full-lock to full-lock. I did some basic geometry and i'm seeing 35 from center line to full lock left and 35 to the right. Does this sound about right??

    I'm adjusting the fall away according to the HD manual and it sucks. I've read posts where they do the 'tighten till it binds then back-off till it's smooth' and will be doing it that way...

    thanks and stay safe!!

    I know this is an old post but in case you still have questions most springers are set up to 35-degress both ways, some big road bikes are set at 40 and most street bikes and light cruisers are set at 45-degrees. Hard to imagine a manufacturer not including some type of stops with their forks.
