The rockers look good to me.

The spring rates is about the only thing t cure this.

One thing I wonder about thou is with the new tabs on the outside of those rockers if they are side loading not transfering the energy straight to the springs binding the action of the spring assembly.

well here's where i'm at now. it took me three days off and on to make these. they turned way better than i thought i could do.
as you can see my trail is 2 3/4 resting. when i push hard the trail goes to a 1 1/2 there abouts. it rides pretty good also. i had to lenghten the spring rods about a 1 1/2 longer. i think this one step helped the most. yes they're crudley welded. this was to just see if i was on the right track. i will be taking it apart yet again to weld them up right and make them pretty.
again many thanks to everyone that has posted on this board. but mainly mr krymis of whom i talked to on the phone a few times during my head scratching and frustration. thanks chris for setting me on the right track.

happy you are getting this thing working right. As for the calls, I love just talking bikes. You guys do all the cool work. I wish i had my machine shop still to be making my springers. I need to make some fixtures and what not. Also I love the pattern torch that bill is using. i have a pantograph myself. cheap but it works.
