Here's my 2 cents... you need to remove the seat, saddlebags, disconnect battery, dsconnect the wiring harness, remove the signal lamps and the hardware securing the fender. There are torque values u need to know when installing the new one. This is all in the service manual for your model. I would go to the dealer and get one, you want all the specs correct and thats the only way to get em

I think i have done the bushes in swingarm of my 2003 fatboy . is it a big job to change them

Well, it's not the most difficult job on your bike but it is a good size job. You'll have to remove the rear wheel, the rear brake caliper (which means you'll have to bleed the brakes when you reassemble it), remove the rear fender with the electrics for the brake light, disconnect the shocks underneath the bike, and any saddlebags or sissy bars that might be on the bike. The swing arm is not that complicated but a lot of stuff has to come off to replace the bearings. I've attached a drawing of the swingarm.

Good Luck
