So at least a heavier shock spring, and ideally an adjustment to the valving to keep pace. Other than t...

Re: Harley sportster hill climber

Steering head specs are remarkably standardized...there's a decent chance that a front end from any given MX bike might just go on - but it would really throw off the geometry of the bike because they'd be so much longer, and you'd certainly have a totally different rake/trail on the Sportster frame...

Re: Information pack posted for the 2017 AMA Hillclimb Grand Championship!

...for those of you keeping score, there's only about 2 weeks left to get signed up!

July 7th. That's it. If you're not signed up, get over there and get it done ASAP - because after the 7th, registration's closed, and that will be that.
