front end length fxst vs. flst

anyone the the difference in length between stock flst and stock fxst. I believe when people say 4" over tubes they are refering to flst as stock, and maybe I already have it right, but fxst maybe 1" longer??? does anyone know for sure?

With reference to RWB's post, a stock lenght FSXT fork woule be the equivalent to a 4"over FLST/FLH (both 31.5" from axel to top of the tube)?? Is this right??

be careful when buying tubes...there are currently 2 fl's:

softail and rubbermount
they arent the same length....the fxst standard would apply to the flt,flh rubbermount.....

even tho a fat boy and heritage are also fl's....it can get confusing...get tape measure....and look it up cause actually the 4 inches is only a myth(in most instances)

this is all only regarding fork tubes, it's a standard people that have been around for years(franks paughco)have held to regarding their own products usually

not starting shit hopefully, just saying there are more exceptions than rule on that particular topic...i carry a tape

I guess what I am getting at is I am using a wide glide with FLH sliders (dual disk) and I want to have the equivalent overall lengh of a 2 over FXST.

Just wondering what tubes to order.

Gypsy Chopper, thanks for the advice though...

I think FXST is baseline for all.....forks, frame etc.
kind of industry standard

I know - but in my case, because I am using FLH sliders, I have to reference back to FXST. I know that I need 2"over FXST setup, but to achieve that with my FLH sliders, I have to order 26 1/4 tubes.

Thanks guys for the tips
