Hi

Has anyone fitted the 2" L&M fork extensions to a Sabre.Do you need to extend the brake line? And also L&M say that you will notice where the extension meets the OEM fork tube but can't that be covered up with the stock indicator mount? Any advice from anyone whose done this mod or has anyone done the 1" extension mod and any comments on either would be a help?

Cheers
John

Why would you say that?

BTW.... Great first post.....

...And for the OP, I have the 2" extenders and the stock lines are still there and I don't see any lines.

They really give the bike a clean look...

Thrifty,

I guess if he were going to rework the frame for more rake, change the fork tube length, get a bigger front tire, replace the fuel tank, AND use 2" extensions... then it might start looking like a Fury!

Being the same size I'd actually like to get a front rim off a Fury for my Sabre. It does have a better look IMO....

Really interested in doing this as well. But where do you get the L & M extensions from.
Excuse my ignorance.

I have seen some threads on various forums discussing it.
I used to scrape out footpegs, but I installed some custom extended footpegs. I needed the leg room anyway.
It was all good until I started to scrape out the the gear shifter arm.
I reckon a 1 or 2 inch fork extension will solve the problem, and maybe a little more fluid in the forks.

Anyway, where the hell can you get them...? :-)

Here's a pic of my 2010 Sabre with 6 degree trees and 2" fork extensions. The bike grew 3.5"'s going from 70" wheelbase to 73.5" wheelbase. I also changed my bars to some 1.25" Drags, that rise a lot higer and pull further back. See pic./

Better!

That's pretty nice there Caj, I like the black Cobra pipes on the black bike. I wonder what they'd look like on my red bike?

Where did you get your fork goodies from?

Well Done! :)
