Is the Right Hand lower Front For Slider the same size as the left


Hi Anonymous, basicly yes, except it has no caliper bracket and utilizes an end cap to secure the axle instead of a hole. The fork tubes are identical

05 deuce, front end shakes, think its neck bearings? I put lots of grease in fitting, it took quite a bit, think it might have been dry. How do I change neck bearings?


There's a lot of things that I'd check before I started tearing into the steering head of the bike. Have you had your front wheel balanced and the bearings checked in it? Is the tire seated properly on the wheel? There's more to a front suspension system than merely changing the bearings out. Unless you've been using a pressure washer on the bike, odds are nothing is wrong with the bearings. I've restored many bikes built in the 60's and never found a bad set of steering head bearings and they didn't have grease fittings on them. The tension of the steering head bearings have a particular setting on them. Called the "Fall-Away" setting, it is how far the front end will turn before it "falls" all the way to the fork stops. At least the earlier bikes had this. Since I've never had to mess with the steering head of a bike as new as yours I can't tell you how to change the bearings. But, you can got to http://www.bikebandit.com and look up the suspension system on your bike to get an exploded view.

Good Luck

Front shocks are vary soft. drained and filled to spec


If the dampening action is still to soft for you, you'll have to drain the forks again and this time put a heavier weight oil in them. If you put 20 wt. oil in last time, try 30 wt. this time. Always use a good quality "fork oil" never just plain engine oil.

Your engine vents through the heads. This vented air is directed into the air cleaner as required by the EPA. This may be the noise you are hearing.

My deuce has 8in over forks . can i cut these forks succesfully.


Not unless you have the proper tools to rethread the inside of the new "top" of the tubes. You need to purchase new fork tubes and swap them out on your lower sliders.

Sundowner Deep Bucket Seat for my Deuce


I like the sundowner on the deuce, but I don't know about passenger comfort...IMO I haven't seen a saddlebag configuration that I like yet for the deuce. I'm going with a bag to carry on the luggage rack that attaches to the sissy bar Kuryakyn or Saddleman at this point, and I will be putting the bag on to rest on the seat so I can use it for a back rest. (I don't carry a passenger though). Good luck to you & let us know what you decide to go with.
