I'm new to the forum but I was wondering if anyone knew what size springer front end I would need for a 92 fxlr. And what's the best brand to get. Thanks for any help.

Get a medium or a large, the small ones are just too dinky....

Your best bet would be to find the cheapest one possible that will install with zero modifications.
That way, when you realize the mistake you made, you can put the modern design back on your bike and sell the springer to someone building a nostalgia softtail.

Why is it a mistake
Everyone has an opinion.

Springers are great looking. Newer ones ride well. Get one from a reputable manufacturer. Paughco, as stated, makes a quality product.

Be aware they do require more frequent maintenance then a normal front end.

New neck bearings every 10k or less on that year and model Harley.
Neck bearings need correct adjustment as do the rockers initially.
Otherwise low maintenance.

Not arguing with you. Just thought I`d read they needed, at least checked, every 3k. :dunno
May have mis-read. This was on an OEM front end.
Never ran one so did`t read any further.

Can't remember the year but after the MoCo changed the neck rake on the Springers they became bullet proof. Prior to that the neck bearings would notch and need replacing in 10k or less. I'm thinking '99 or '00 was the change up year.

Thanks.
Was thinking I had finally totally lost it.

I've been trolling my local craigslist in search of a complete springer front end. I want to do this to my FXD.
