Which rake kit?

Alright, im danerously close to pulling the trigger on a rake kit. Because billski no longer makes them ive narrowed it down to 2, Mortons or Bikercom. Im still not 100% sure i wanna dump another grand in this thing but i probably will since im addicted. The price difference is about $150 but for the extra cash Mortons give you the fork extensions and fork covers, at least I believe they do. Bikercom does not meaning id spend another $150 on extensions and fatty tubes from billski which ay not even work with the Bikercom trees.

If anyone wants to chime in on which they think is a better deal id appreciate it. Im leaning towards Mortons.

Once I figure out the rake mod, I plan to go with HK american straights or strippers maybe a tank stretch then i plan to be done.

I know, I lied. I keep thinking it looks good enough and then I think it could look better and back and forth. It never ends.

I been pondering the 21 front also. I think im going to hold off on that for awhile. I been seeing a lot of Harleys lately with 23" or bigger front wheels and I may do that once there out for awhile and the price comes down.

mortons seem to be the better deal...also, i've only seen one bike with bikercom trees, and it was a 650 vstar...I think the mortons kit is a)more used (therefore more resources if you need help and b) maybe a tad more reliable since there's folks on here who can testify that you get a quality product.

I'm not sayin the bikercom trees aren't a quality product, but there's a whole lot more mortons kits out there on the road, i think

Ok, I found a place that makes 23" billet wheels for all Harleys. A bit pricey but if I got the only Honda Shadow with a 23"er up front that makes it seem worth it to me. Ill find out soon what the total cost will be. They say they make them for wide glides so that should work for the Shadow. Now if I raked it having a wheel that is 4" larger than stock I shouldnt need fork extensions. At least thats my thought. The rim will be 2" larger all around. With fork ext. I think the front would be way to high up. Any thoughts???

I was going to chime in on Mortons. I got it, great product and good guys to talk to on the phone. The extensions and covers do come with the kit. +1.

But good point about the 23. That would give you and extra 2 inches in height for sure. I am too messed up with allergies to think about the differences that would cause versus extensions....
