What is the torque specs for the nut on the bearings on the triple tree


You have an adjuster nut that you have to tighten just until you don't have any freeplay in the bearing and then the upper triple tree goes on. The pinch bolt tightens to 21-27 foot pounds. The fork stem nut tightens to 35-40 foot pounds according to the manual that I have here. I've found that if you torque the nut that tight, it will tighten the adjustment of the steering head bearings and they'll start to "count". When a bearing is "counting", it is too tight and you can feel it bump from one roller to the next as you turn the front end. If it starts this, you'll have to loosen the fork nut and back off on the adjuster and then retighten the fork nut. Recheck for bearing adjustment. Not "counting" and no shake in the steering head. It's touchy so be patient. I've had to simply tighten the fork stem nut until I got the right tension and disregard the torque setting as long as it felt like it was tight enough not to come loose.

Good Luck

What is the difference in the degrees of rake on factory trees between full back and full forward.? is full forward back to factory stock rake?


Frame "rake" is determined by the angle of the neck section of the frame itself relative to the ground/earth. Triple trees are in front of the steering stem (or neck "axle/axis") does not define or affect the "rake" of the frame. Almost every other motorcycle manufacturer places the triple trees in front of the frame's neck axis, In 1980 H-D developed the "self-centering" type of triple trees, where the trees lay/fall behind the neck's axis. This type of front end design is very stable because the "weight" or mass of the assembly being behind the neck will "come back to center" while moving forward down the road.

What are the torque specifications for fork caps on a 2000 Harley Road King?


Not sure which "fork caps" you're talking about. In mechanics, so many people call different things by different names it's sometimes difficult to figure out what they are talking about.

Anyway, if you're talking about the large fork caps that at the upper triple tree, there is not specific torque, just snug. I wouldn't overtighten them due to there very thin profile and rounded corners on some.

If you're talking about the cap that screws directly into the upper fork tube, there again, no specific torque, just snug. If you tighten either of these caps too tightly, you could encounter problems with removal in the future.

If you are talking about the fork cap at the axle, the nuts torque to 12-15 foot pounds.

FXRS CONV -INSTALL TRIPLE TREES TO MAKE A WIDE GLIDE FRONT END


As long as the triple clamp stem is the same diameter, the triples can be changed out. As far as why, you're guess is as good as mine. Mine is that some people may like the narrow or mid glide front end, and an 883 just wouldn't look right as a wide glide.
