    Sign in. If that's "bad" is debatable, I have read in several different places that the absolute minimum amount of trail is 2 inches. Fork stops are used to prevent the front end from swiveling around the steering stem and crashing into the frame or fuel tank if the forks reach the 'Flop Point'. Use whichever method is easiest for your particular application. Exactly that fine line between life and death is the result of rake angle. I hope that will not be the case!!

    Rake is often called fork angle, but that is a misnomer. Rake is the angle, in degrees, that the steering head of the frame—not the forks—is.Last edited by Dragstews; at PM.

    I have a stock 30 degree rake neck (stock frame 71 sportster) with a 4" will effectively increase the rake angle relative to the ground.It will take very little effort to change its direction whether that effort comes from your hands on the bars or from a bump in the road.

    The look of a Harley-Davidson may be a decisive factor in 2) Rake – This is the angle in degrees of the steering neck from the vertical.It might explain why shopping carts weren't meant to go mph.

    At one time, from the standpoint of building real 'hardcore' choppers, this last frame configuration was at the absolute bottom of the barrel from a desirability standpoint but today there are many builders going back to this style but chopping it down significantly from the stock factory dimensional configuration.

    To maintain good stability and proper handling with the fork angle being in the normal range from about 22 degrees to about 32 degrees a certain amount of trail is designed in.

    If we leave everything else stock and simply rake the neck out to about forty degrees and add some extended forks to keep the frame level the trail distance increases to 9-inches as seen in Figure 2.
