    I am looking to somehow get 3 degree rake on my Deuce. I have looked at the triple trees but have heard bad things about them changing the handling. I am now considering the rake caps. Need some opinions here. Also, what does this mean:
    ADDING RAKE INCREASE TRAIL

    ADDING RAKE TO TREES DECREASES TRAIL


    Thanks

    Thanks glider, What do you think of the rake cups. Misspelled in original. OOPs!

    I'm a firm believer of leaving the front end the way it comes from the factory for handling/safety reasons. Once you change rake or trail, the handling changes somewhat in most cases sometimes not for the better.
