I went to my local dealer today to get trees for my 12 RG and the parts guy was doing a lot of typing on the calculator, so when he got done he said your total will be 734.00. Anyway I thought tri glide trees would be cheaper. Do anyone have the correct part numbers?

You only need the upper and lower tree. He was probably charging you for me bearings and all the othe assembly parts. Unless you want them you can use all your old stuff.

83404-09 Bracket upper roughly $250+, 83374-09 Bracket Assembly fork stem roughly $150+, And if you need a front skirt for the Batwing it's 83453-09 Skirt outer fairing roughly $50+. Everything else transfer from your OEM except the pinch bolts for your shocks.

Additionally, you will have to procure two each 1⁄2-20 X 2-3/4 Grade 8 Hex Bolts and lockwashers. I got those from my local Ace hardware store.

Some have done it with the 7* Trike trees but most will tell you either go with the Kewl Metal 12* trees or do a 7*/7* rake/tree combo.

Webmaster, can you tell me more about the 7*/7* rake/tree combo? This is the first I've heard of that.

Depends how thick is your wallet. I did mines with the trike trees back then when stretching and cutting was out or reach to an average joe. Your options are even broader now! You have to ask yourself what's your budget and which look do you want. If $ aint the issue then more power to you....

You chop the neck, and add 7* of rake and a little stretch. And run 7* trees on top of that. AFKustoms "Vendor on here," Yaffe, and HHI offer kits to do the neck and HHI makes the trees or you can use the 7* trike trees.

My bike is about to have me looking for a 2nd job... I figured I would start off like 808 did and go with tri glide trees and a 2" drop on the forks. My bike is brand new so I feel like I have time for changes later, once you cut the frame it's no going back.
