This is a question for all the hands on guys. Watching videos and looking at pics of cutting the neck seems to be very easy. I'm would like to know what's next.

Do I have to do anything to the forks? I heard something about plus 2 minus 1 what ever that mean please explain. I like the slam look and I want air ride on the rear with a lowing block. Will this change anything that need to be done on the front. I know I will need to change my fairing bracket.

I also notice some people use blocks(yaffe) while others use the the HHI set up, can some one explain this?

Basically I would like for someone to give a breakdown in stages, the main thing for me is not vibrating or tank slapping as I get my ride on.

I do appreciate you guys and your opinions. Thanks

They do offer now a raked tree setup that will allow you to run a 26" front wheel without cutting the frame....I read about it on here.

I use the yaffe neck bblock, they are both good pieces but I like the yaffe for the reason the neck looks stock when your done and you dont add so much stretch to the bike, hhi stretches 2 inches and up 2 inches for the 26, Yaffe out 1 and up 1. the plus 2 inch longer fork tubes than stock with a 1inch lowering kit. yaffe came out with extensions now so I dont think you have to get the +2 fork tubes. As far as air ride goes in the rear you shouldnt have to change anything in the front.

As said above.

Yaffe or HHI are both good choices for your neck. Both companies suggest the that you need a +1 tube which can be achieved one of two ways. Yaffe 1" Extension, or +2 tubes with a 1" lowering spring.
With a road glide you will need to modify both your fairing bracket, and the lower fairing bracket.
For the rear, air ride is a nice choice. You should probably stay away from the lowering block, ive heard alot of complaints about bottoming out with them and harsher ride.
