Battistinis teamed up with leading suspension and fork manufacturer, American Suspension. the objective was to develop and build a new style set of lower legs. taking its flair from the 70’s Motocross Inspired era.
Fits: 2008-2013 Harley Touring Models with 23″ Wheel These legs feature an axle that is offset over 1 1/2” forward and around 1/2” lower to give a perfect trail when fitting a 23” front wheel into any touring bike.
A true bolt on part Leading Axle ™ fork legs simply replace the stock lower legs without the need to remove the fairing, trees or altering frame geometry. The Leading Axle ™ fork leg has the corrected trail built right into the leg.
The Leading Axle ™ fork legs utilize stock brakes, fender and all fork internals. they can be replaced in under two hours which reduces the downtime and labor cost. A simple change out that improves the ride and handling of your bike giving a tough new stance to your motorcycle.
Leading Axle ™ fork legs are Machined from 6061-T6 Aluminum and are of modular construction allowing for various color combos.
Four available finishes, all Chrome, all Black, Chrome & Black or Black & Chrome. Leading Axle ™ fork legs feature a wrap around fender mount that has the corrected alignment built in to allow the use of the stock fender.
No need for any extra raise up kits. The caliper mounting brackets are held in place with 2 x 1/2” bolts to ensure extreme rigidity and provide the option of single or dual disc. (a radial mounting bracket and caliper is also available and sold separately).
The radial mount caliper can be set up to use 11.5”, 11.8”, 13”, 16” or even 18” rotors. You can start with the stock rotor and upgrade any time you want. Axle can be fitted either way and is secured with an axle cap which protects the leg from possible damage if cross threaded.
Keeps full suspension travel with a 23” front wheel. no need to install travel limiters or uprated springs.
Kit is also compatible with American Suspensions Fully adjustable cartridge and suspension kits. With the Axle offset the “high point” of the wheel is now more forward making the wheel and tire appear larger. doing this gains frame and tree clearance.
Using the offset fork leg allows you more travel than using raked trees or any previous option. Patent pending design provides you with an easy way to get the best ride on your 23” wheel conversion. Nothing else needed, looks great with the stock front fender.
