Read this solution for your Harley with a little expense.
Harley Davidsons are very fascinating motorcycle, which every owner wants to customize in order to make them unique. There are not two identical Harley in this World. A lot of owner use very high handlebars, which mean that the rider leans backwards during the driving and loads more weight on the rear part of the motorcycle. This weight shift implies a set of problems on the dynamics of the bike. Shifting the weight backwards, in fact, we load less the front wheel: as result, we will have less power of braking and the sinking of the fork will fall.
What happens if the front wheel does not have enough weight?
When we start to brake intensely with the front brake, if the handlebar is original, there is a load of circa 40% of the total weight (motorcycle + rider) on the front wheel. Knowing that friction between wheel and asphalt depends proportionally on the load over the front wheel, it is clear that reducing the percentage of total weight downloaded on the front wheel, there might be possible to stop it totally. In this case, the limit of braking is given by the adherence of the tire to the ground. The friction in this moment will be quite low, because we don’t have enough load on the front wheel, and that might lead to the classic “front closure”.
If we use a low handlebar, instead, our body will be more tilted forward and we will load more weight on the front wheel; in this way, the friction will be greater, and we will not risk blocking the wheel.
As we have seen, it is clear that everyone should lower the handlebars instead of raising it up, especially if we want to drive safely and faster.
