You are going to have to remove the fork tubes to get to the plugs on top of the tube. They hold the spring in the tube. Do you have a service manual? Doesn't look like you can see this image very well.what do you have to do to replace the springs in an ultra classic's fork? I have the outer fairing off, the lower inner fairing off and it looks like i need to remove the handlebars to get the springs out. Problem now is how do i reposition the fairing to be able to remove the handlebars?
Sorry off topic a bit, that is one beautiful bike love the red and brown combo.I lowered my '02 3/4" with Progressive fork springs and Progressive rear shocks. I also installed a TrueTrack stabilizer. I did away with the air since they had started leaking down anyway. I really like the stance, handling and I am more comfortable at a traffic light with my short 30" inseam.

Any time you reduce the travel in your suspension you will reduce the ride quality, especially when you are on harsh road surfaces. A lot of factors come into play - the type of shocks you use, the spring kits that you use in the front forks, your weight, whether you ride two up or not, and how aggressively you ride the bike.I would like to know if lowering my RK Custom will affect the air ride. Has anyone done this to their bike? Thanks!
