Here is a good clos up shot with the polished adapter on mine. And the trees are an integral part of the kit. You have to use them.

Dystinction - The trees are part of the kit. They have sealed bearings and a boss with neck stem already fitted. Sorry, you can`t use other trees with this kit.

The adapter comes standard anodised black or polished to special order as xlchop`s. Polishing is about $100 - that covers the cost of a manicure afterwards as my fingernails get all dirty : )

DaBatt - the workshop used the original Fatboy lower leg sliders with a little modification to the internals. Just waiting for the the tech. to confirm back to me what he did.

Dugman

I was wondering if you ever got the details on what those folks had to do to get the chopper kit to work on the fatboy?

I`ve been told the fork sliders are just a little shorter than FXST type. So an additional spacer was fitted to the damper. But it was not rocket science to do. Apart from that nothing different.

Dugman, are the spacers you mentioned for the springs or dampeners? Since you're dealing with the kit guys personally, and if they are receiptive to input, you might want to ask them to research using stock and aftermarket existing trees on customer's rides. They could sell 5 times more of them for only half the price.

The polished version looks a hellofa lot better for sure...

These are spacers for the dampers.

The spacers for the springs are already included in the kit.

Due to the unique design of offsetting the steering head, the trees come with the bearings already factory fitted so stock or aftermarket trees could not be adapted

Dugman,
How far is it from the bottom of the top tree to the top of the bottom tree? I have a set of Doss covers on my ride and I really like the look (mainly because I powdered them black). So, I would want to make covers or figure a way to "extend" my covers because it looks considerably farther to go. Also, how far is it from the bottom tree to the slider? I am trying to find a set of gaiters/covers that would work on the longer tubes. Anyone else got any ideas for covers? Thanks.

DaBatt - no, the price I quoted is for the black anodised finish adapter.
