got my first chance to really try the traxxion suspension out this am. :2vrolijk_21: :2vrolijk_21: :2vrolijk_21:

i have no paperwork on these yet, anyone care to share? i have played with the rear settings a bit. seems like they set it up in the middle of the road.  went with stock height. :orange: :orange: :orange:

did i say how sweet it is?? :orange:


Did you get the paperwork yet? I have a copy down in the garage if you still need it.


megavolt17, I was the same way. The traxxion made a world of difference. I recently rode a Road Gilde without it and am so glad I spent the $$$.

i just got it yesterday, for the bitubos anyhow. i tried understanding the italian version after reading the english version. :nixweiss: i might absorb more after reading again and making my own notes.

have none for the front ak-20, i'm assuming clockwise decreases oil flow and counterclockwise allows more oil flow.
prolly by quarter turns. the stars are a bit hidden on the tr.

a much improved setup though. :orange:...i stayed with the lowered suspension too.

If mine is a guide a little bit is a noticed difference here.  Definitely no more than a 1/4 turn at a time.

I don't believe I got anything from Traxxion for the forks. As a matter of fact the only thing they gave me was a t shirt and a bill.

I'm sure I'm a day late and a dollar short here but .... anybody notice that it appears using the wrench that comes in the tool kit to adjust the axle nut is no longer able to get on the nut after the Bitubos are installed. Or am I missin something. Looks like I need to buy a 36mm wrench  :nixweiss:

Howie-baby, you're doing it the hard way man :huepfenlol2: .

Once you get some weight off the ass end with the jack just unhook the lower shock bolts.  Then with the jack you can move the axle and rear wheel all over the place.  Up and down to clear the exhaust.  Easy to get a normal socket on with the torque wrench.  And all kinds of flexibility just to move things around to make it all fall in place going back together.

Sometimes doing a little less isn't easier after all.  This is one of them.  Just unhook the shocks and get those long skinny bastards out of the way :bananarock: .

If someone is considering some relatively inexpensive options for some robust 36mm tools hit eBay or elsewhere and check out the various gadgets for old VW/dune buggy axles.  Also it's a size with impact type sockets out there cheaply available that fit some small car oil filters.

I have had the Bitubos for a while now on my '05 SEEG and it is now time to pull the trigger on the AK-20's. Since the SEEG is lowered 1" front and rear I was considering raising the front end back up 1" to the same specs as the Streetglide. I have a buddy with an '06 Streetglide and it seems to handle so much better than my SEEG. I have always had major problems with the front end diving and scraping the floorboards in the twisties. Has anyone with a SEEG tried this set up? Has anyone noticed similar problems with the stock set up and find that the AK-20's eliminate these issues? Any opinions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
