2013 lariat can I put put larger tires on my truck?

Yes, ..BUT.. There are a couple issues that must be considered..
Front end first.
1. Clearance = at the fenders when the suspension moves the tires to max travel upward... == 2. When the tires are turned full travel left and right ( full suspension travel also)..make sure the tires will clear the frame/suspension components (at full turn - left and right)
Next is the front end geometry (toe-in -caster/camber) is set after you install the new tires... larger tires will also decrease your milage (harder for the engine to turn).. REAR END - make sure the tires clear the fenders when the suspension moves through the full travel range.. if the tires stick outside the fenders, you MIGHT have an issue at full suspension compression.. not to mention throwing "stuff" all over your truck!

How expemsive to turn 2014 harley D fatboy into hardtail? details below

Going to a hard tail frame requires a lot of additions.
About the only thing you can use is the engine/transmission, maybe wheels. A lot of questions needs to be answered before giving a estimate. Most likely you would come out better by getting a rolling frame kit. I do a lot of custom work and it can get very costly. I would just build from scratch and get a ss complete engine, a 124inch will scare you. Add a baker od6 transmission. Now paint that can really set you back some of the paint I have had done has run as low at 2 gran and a few were over 8grand. I suggest doing some research for rolling frame kits, engines/ engine work. My daily rider the engine build was over $12 grand

How to upgrade my fork to more than 100mm

you sure can. You just need to get one that has the same size diameter steering tube as the one you currently have. You will need some special tools to remove the headset races that are pressed on to the fork and then you can move them to the new fork.

As far as "upgrading" to a longer travel fork, take into consideration that when you do this, you will change the geometry of the bike, effectively "slackening" the head tube angle and they will dramatically affect the steering of the bicycle, it will turn very "sluggishly" and feel like it flops from side to side almost.

Not a big deal if you are on the street, but in a technical offroad situation, this can be a problem if you are not used to the new handling dynamics.

Bicycle frames are literally built around the forks for their handling characteristics. But you say, "I see this done on motorcycles all the time." Yes this is true, but the devil is in the details. On motorcycles a "triple-tree" crown is used and typically the lower tree is machined with the proper offset factored in so that longer forks can be used without lifting the frame and affecting the handling. The one major factor that determines the handling characteristics of two wheeled travel is the measure of the front wheel's "trail". Google it and you will find volumes of information on it and how it is measured. For bicycles there is a "sweet spot" of trail measurement, most manufacturers keep this as a proprietary secret. Before you actually swap out the forks, you can calculate how the longer forks you plan on installing on your bike will affect the trail measurement on your bike to determine if you want to ride the bike this way, before you spend the money. Only you can decide if it is better to save up the money to buy a longer travel bike with the correct geometry or not.

good luck and wear a helmet. More suspension travel just allows you to ride faster off road, so you might be going OTB (over the bars) with the new, longer travel, option. :-)

2009 model, Over bumps, metallic clinging sound from what seems to be the fork............. lights assembly tight, brakes good etc........... Can`t put my finger on it

Many times a common cause the rebound dampening of the forks them selves. Forks have large springs internally as well as tubes with various holes the restrict the fluid flow. When you carry your front wheel or pop a wheelie the springs immediately pop the forks to the max extended position and make a metallic clunk. Check your owners manual for correct fork fluid viscosity and volumne. Replace and set correctly.
Check for cable guides that may interfere with fork travel. They may have to be repositioned.
Your front fender may have loose fasteners and the bracket between the tire and the fender is clanking.
Keep on riding,

I have a merida am 5000 frame and would like to know if a FOX RACING SHOX F100RL with remote lockout, 9mm quick release 1 1/8 steerer at 200mm

This fork will fit in your frame but if your frame size is too big or you need to put your stem too high, the steerer tube may be too short. However, for this frame, a fork with longer travel will be preferable as it will give the bike better geometry for descending and technical trail features.

If this fork is new, remember that a crown race has to be pressed on.

What are the hardware differences between hybrid and mountain bicycles? How feasible is it to go from mountain (fat tire) to hybrid (thin low drag tire) functions? Can I just change the wheels or is it...

Some of this will depend mostly on what type of bike youre talkin' about here. Some cruiser/comfort type bikes will have the exact same rim size as nearly all mtn bikes and will swap with no problem but a 26 and 700 size wheel is NOT the same and there is NO compatibility between tires or frame of the bike including the fork. On a standard 26x2.1 size mtn tire the smallest you could go to is a 26x 1.50 that will fit on that wheel. if you have a French 26x1 3/8 size (S6) tire then the answer is the same....NOT compatible with anything 26" whatsoever. You cannot change the wheels either depending on the frame/fork you have. All you need to do is change the tires and keep the wheels! Any hardtail mtn bike will work fine as a commuter bike if you change the tires to a thinner and smoother tire for less rolling resistance.

What's a "hardtail"? What's "full suspension"?

A "hardtail" is a mountain bike that has a front suspension fork (like the one on the right) and no shock absorber in the back. Good hardtails are light, fast and responsive, and because of this they are good for climbing.
Even the cheapest mountain bikes these days tend to have suspension forks. That's not necessarily a good thing, since most of the forks on cheap bikes are of poor quality and will probably need replacing before too long. The cheapest forks also tend to be sold only on new bikes, and not separately. Find out the make and model of the fork, and search around on the web for it. The price will give you an indication of the fork quality.
Most decent bikes are sold with Rock Shox, Manitou, or Marzocchi. Marzocchi has been making forks longer than anyone and has probably the best reputation, but they tend to be expensive so you won't find them on anything but expensive bikes. Rock Shox and Manitou make lower-end (but reasonably good) forks. Other reputable brands such as Fox and Suntour make forks that may very well provide a good service life, but are not as well known for mountain bike forks. Replacement forks can be found at very low prices during sales and clearance events, so they can be upgraded later (sometimes at a bargain price). A "full suspension" bike has the front suspension fork and a rear suspension (like the bike on the right). These are highly recommended if you ride in a lot of rocks, as the rear suspension allows you to glide over rough terrain. They're also good for big jumps. The rear shock adds some complexity to the bike, and a good bit more weight at any give price point, plus there'll be a bit more maintenance. Plus, you'll pay a few hundred dollars more than a hardtail for a bike of otherwise equal components. Depending on your terrain, it might be worth it; riding a hardtail in big rocks can be brutal.

It' s not a technical problem but a tech question: I am building a new bike intended for FR .. Trek session 88 DH ,2010 model. I do not know which fork would suit best: I don' t want the 40 but one of the...

Any of the forks will work fine, however I would consider adding in to your equation a Cane Creek Angleset. Reducing the travel on your bike from 8" to under 6" will change the geometry, so you will need a special angle headset to compensate for the shorter travel.

The Big question is why change at all. The 40 is adjustable down to 6.5" travel which is essentially the same as the 36 van. The session 88 is a big travel downhill bike and is designed to be best with the big travel, probably not the best choice for a Freeride rig if you want shorter travel and more uphill capabilities. That being said I would recommend the following:

36 Van - if you want a shorter travel version of the 40. Strong fork for heavier rider
36 Talas - If you want even more adjustability for less travel and want air sprung instead of metal springs. Remember the geometry may not work great without alot of tinkering if you limit the travel too much.
36 float - Simplest of the 4 forks, same travel as the 36 van. Air springs not coil. May be too light for you. This is a up to you.
32 Vanilla - I do not recommend with this frame - Travel will not be a good match.

Pedaling uphill is not going to be limited by the fork on this bike, the big travel rear end on the 88 is going to prove a much bigger obstacle. It will be a fun bike going down, but a bit of a slug going up. If you are going uphill alot, you may want to consider a different frame for freeride before building this one up. Good luck and have fun.

I need to adjust the clutch on a 1995 standard mighty max mitsubishi I changed the clutch disc, pilot bearing, throw-out bearing and pressure plate, but the clutch stays against the fly wheel when running...

You will need to turn the cable adjuster so there is only about 1/8 inch of free travel of the cable where it attaches to throw out fork before it starts to move the fork. Once the throw out bearing is achieving its full travel the clutch should release and enable gear selection.

I renewed front sportster forks but when on bike the forks do not come up

If you put it all back together right then you got to have to much fork oil in the forks. Take the screw out of both forks and push down on the front end and it will squirt oil out. put the screw back in and see how it rides. If it is still to hard then do it again till you get about 2 1/2 inches of travel in the forks and then your good to go.
