    Hey guys,
     I just finished the first pair of 2" extensions for the Raider on the lathe last night. I have started three sets each in +2" and +3", the first set of each have been spoken for. They are priced at $100 and $120 respectively. Shipping is $20 to any US territory, $30 to Canada or Mexico, and $39 for over seas. I will post pictures when they are ready to ship later today.

      Fork Tube extensions are ready to ship. I have two pair available each in +2" and +3" lengths. They are made out of Stainless Steel and are slightly domed on top to look a bit nicer than the stock hex cap.

      Got mine Saturday.
      A few minutes polishing on the bench and they shined up nice.

      They installed easy, (I did use thread tape).
      Haven't had it for a ride yet, but am pleased with the look.

      The dome tops are subtle. Being stainless steel there is a color disparity to chrome. I set my switchblade quick release clamp right at the 'joint' and with the wind shield installed, no one would know there are extensions on the forks (except raider owners).

      Had to make a 2" drop for the brake line 'T' (must have missed that part in other peoples posts)...oh well...a M6x100 x 70mm bolt and a 2" cut-off of a 1/2" pipe...no problem.

      To: Erik, Add a second hole or make it through. There are positions where the hole gets in an inconvenient position and you can't get a screw driver in there (I made due with an allen wrench but that doesn't allow for a lot of leverage).

      Id advise yall get them chromed to match forks before install. I didn't and ended up taking them off later to be chromed.

      I had to add the extension for the lower lines too. Only about an 1 1/4" though.

      If these are anything like Bilski extensions, they won't stay shiny. I just covered mine.

      I don't have many chrome plating services around my area anymore.
      Nearest is Detroit area or Grand Rapids and I wasn't going to wait to ride. I'll likely get that done over next winter.

      200+ miles and no leaks.

      Erik did a fantastic job.
