Forks for illusion tower rack on 2007 vtx

Recommended Posts

Katman1100

Does anyone know where I can find the forks for the tower racks on an illusion tower.

My chrome was looking pretty bad so I was taking them off to get them powder coated and all 4 bolts broke.  Every shop I have talked to said it would be cheaper to buy new racks vs having these drilled out and re-tapped. 

I have looked on eBay and was hoping I could adapt the forks from another brand to the mount on the illusion tower, but no one seems to know the distance between there bolt holes on the fingers or it is to small.  Mine are 2inches.

I am really looking for the ones for a surfboard, but at this point would probably buy whatever I can find. 

I have done a google search and came up empty so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

You can get them anywhere. Search tines.  The Roswell ones are nice.

Maybe I was using the wrong search term.  I will try again today. Those roswell ones look nice, but I didn't see anywhere that it says it will fit the illusion tower.  I will try giving then a call today to see what they say. 

Thanks for the help.  If anyone else has any other ideas please let me know.

Hey I will have forks for sale at the end of the month.  They will fit an illusion tower with 4 bolts.

Those are the best tines out there IMO.  The spread holes are usually universal or at least there is a popular one

Are you saying these tines will fit this type of rack?

That last picture looks like mine also.  That is the illusion x I believe which mounts differently than the illusion xs.  Mine on the illusion x are 2" on center for the holes into the tines.  Most that i have found online  are 1.75" or 1.5" forcing you to go to a different mounting bracket.

Should fit Roswell though because I'm using my Roswell racks on my Titan spin rack

You don't need more than 2 bolts. Each bolt can hold about 500lbs.
