1100 Classic Forks Question
Hi V Star Forum,

I have a question about my v star 1100 Classic.

I like the forks on the Custom better than the Classic. The
Classic’s are a bit to chunky for my taste. I’ve looked around, and it looks
like the Classic’s forks and the Custom forks are similar, except the Classic
has covers where the Custom does not, allowing the upper forks to be exposed.

If I remove the covers, will I cause something to not function
correctly? It seems to me that I could remove the covers and add the “covers”
that come from a Classic, and BAM; instant Custom fork look. Is this assumption
correct? Or is there more I need to do to get the look I want?

testing; ..difficult..
dont know about how the lower legs differ from custom to classic but removing the covers exposes the ugly lower triple tree.

@ET_Geckoe No, i don't have any pics yet. I wanted to ask the question before I start taking things apart in case it's really detrimental.

@nick59 I completely forgot the lower triple tree doesn't look the same as the upper. Is there an aftermarket lower i could get that you know of?
