KW Enterprise Triple Tree

#1

Post by Brianb »

Trying to install a KW Enterprises triple tree on my 1976 GL1000. I cannot get the brackets tight enough to cinch onto the fork tubes. Anyone else using a KW triple tree have similar problems? Is it safe to use shims?

I didn't know that they offered one for your bike. Are you sure of the fitment? I wouldn't shim a triple tree.

I bought it second hand. I cannot find anything about the KW kits or products. When did fork tubes change sizes on the Goldwings?

The leading link fork set up I had on a 1000 was shimmed, from the manufacture, so should be OK...

The only KW triples I saw on their site were for raking out HDs. The 1000s had 37mm tubes, 39mm for 1100s, 41mm (I think) for 1200s.
