Hi, for a 2009 Sportster Nightster, anyone have use the Vulcan triples?

Are they good?

What is the idea to add a 3 deg Rake Fork Cups (I can't understand for what use it)?

Thanks so much, regards

Maybe no one saw it? You needed to bump it. I guess you now have.

Any opinions about the quality and swap process in the Vulcan Triple Trees?
Searching (google is our big friend) I find some bad comments, more from 2005-2007 about not answering, or taking care if something goes/arrive wrong etc. Someone have a direct experience dealing with Vulcan?

I've use a lot of their parts including the Wide Glide conversion.
Good quality and no issues.

Thank you. Sounds as Vulcan solve the problems that I read about zero customer care, right? And after reading the bad comments in other forums when doing google searches, I was afraid to throw away $ 450

I have been suspicious, because I wrote him several days ago and no response so far.

Well with covid and all, things are slow all over.
I never had an issue with their parts so I did not talk to them.
