I have been a fan of raked baggers for a while now and this site has me thinking stronger of cutting and raking my 91. When doing this does the angle of the inner fairing change much on a FLH?

It will change some depending on how you rake it. The inner you just get used to, the outer is available in raked versions.

If you want to keep the stock fairing there are a couple angled head light trim rings out there.

I think it would be cooler if you would keep your older inner and outer. There is a way to do everything. Just do it, you will figure it out as you go!

How much does the headlight really move, when putting on a 23 or 26 inch wheel? Also will the newer neck kits work on the older frames?

Well, with the rake, if you don't do anything, the headlight will be facing the sky!

Some type of shim would have to be used to bring the headlight back down into the useable range.

It's doable....but will take some time.

NO REASON why you couldnt cut near the headlight and angle it down to what you need to and re fiberglass or whatever they use it back up. pretty much what yaffe does on his service

Ok, thanks slothy. I have already put the 2000-up lower legs on my stock tubes and have no problem, and I still have the air input.
