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.

Raked cups are used to increase wheelbase and trail.

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.
