Is there a maximum limit of degrees that you can rake your front forks out to? I was thinking about purchasing a 14 degree rake kit for my bike, but not if I'm going to get pulled over and ticketed for it.

I cant remember seeing anything in regards to forks, however the handlebar height is in the act.
HTA OREG 611
schedule 6
3 (e) no part of the handlebar shall exceed a height of 380 millimetres (38cm) above the uppermost portion of the operator’s seat when the seat is depressed by the weight of the operator

Further the longer the rake, the less downforce on your front tire...i.e. if the officer grabs your front brake to lock, and can still push the bike forward, improper means of braking, off comes the plate, it can be declared unfit and towed away, don't mess around with chopper style bikes, the cannot store or manoeuvre in emergency situations and almost always draw unwanted police attention.

AMEN... being a MC rider myself, those "4 wheelers" don't seem to see us and MC riders have to avoid said "4 wheeler" or end up being part of the 4 wheeler
