High Performance Front End For FXR and Dyna Models

Introducing the GigaCycle Garage ‘Corsair’ front fork for the performance-oriented v-twin crown. This front end allows the user to ditch his heavy, ill-handling and under-braked 39mm fork in favor of the Corsair dropped triple tree design that now allows for the use of a high performance set of Showa legs and Tokico four piston calipers that are adapted to run on the stock FXR or Dyna front wheel. With these modification, you’ll now also be able to run 310mm (12.200”) floating rotors as well. 

The GigaCycle kit is complete, soup to nuts and includes the following main components, along with a few smaller bits not listed:

-Corsair dropped triple trees, designed and manufactured in the USA -53mm inverted Showa fork legs, black or gold  -Radial mount Tokico four piston calipers -310mm floating rotors and adapters -Custom axle, spacers and speedometer drive allowing you to utilize your stock gauge cluster -Custom brake lines and fittings  -Custom billet fender mounting brackets allowing for the use of your stock 39mm fender

The GigaCycle Corsair fork weighs substantially less than the stock fork, and they've done their homework to calculate what rake, trail and ride height is necessary to run an inverted front end on a v-twin. Some will say that the Corsair kit is too short, a rider needs more travel but when you sit on your bike after installing the Corsair, you’ll notice there is considerably less sag. These Showa legs are stiffer and don’t move until they need to. On an FXR running 14”+ rear shocks and the Corsair fork, frame clearance is just under 6” making for what would be considered the perfect ride height
