    Farthing Racing Steering System

    I was able to get a closer look at the Farthing Steering system this past weekend, and I must say I was more than impressed with the design and quality of this piece. I snapped a few pics and wanted to share them with you guys. It is fully adjustable and comes with 7" risers with other risers available to suit any riding style riding style.

    Great job Dustin and Phil

    Looks nice! What are the pro and cons over RIVA Ultra Pro-Series Steering and Lowering System?

    The Farthing steering has a dual sealed bearing set up for the lower steering and the upper steering can be fully adjusted.

    What's the benefit over the TBM system seeing as the farthing is about 400$ more.?

    From what I saw and felt, the farthing is slightly lighter, and a lot beefier than the TBM.

    What's the difference between the Riva and TBM steering..?..both are price the same and look the same..both are height adjustable and assume get rid of the sloppy steering...more tighter precision from either one so lower base steering not needed ?

    The only thing about putting on only the upper steering is you can not adjust the front and back. You need the lower for that. What you can do is get just the upper and try it. It may be in the proper position for you. You can also turn the bottom and top clamp sections around to move it during the install but it is stuck there and can only move the limited amount. I was able to find a happy spot. I still decided to get the base. Once I got that you can also add the tilt to your personal bar position. With all the different ways you can move them you will be able to find that perfect spot for sitting, standing, going strait, or turning. Before you lock it down with thread locker be sure to check out the full range of motion in your riding positions.

    I will add to what Gl posted. If you ride cc the bottom assy may be to tight or stiff some call it. The seals are made tight to provide a dampener affect for offshore riding. Witch some may not like for cc. And also def use red lock tite on every bolt.
