Question about 2003 Harley Davidson FXSTDI Softail Deuce

1 Answer

Seat on 04 SE Deuce CVO w/phatail

Im looking for a sharp looking replacement seat for my scooter that includes more comfort for my wife on back. My deuce has a phatail conversion with a 240 rear tire. We want a removeable back pillon and possibly even the passenger seat, plus I want to be able to add a HD luggage rack as needed, but be able to remove it easily. We like the custom looking exotic inserts too. Corbin, Mustang, Danny Grey, or total custom........anyone ever had crossed this path who can provide guidance? I know, I want my cake and eat it too!

2005 Deuce, Softtail. Key shows on dash. Engine shut off. All lights work except blinkers. Replaced TSM. Did not fix problem. Blow ignition fuses, fuel pump wont work.


Check the harness by the seat. I had one a few years back the would intermittently do what yours is doing. it was a small nick in the harness from a sharp edge on one of the welds. It would touch it just right and strand the guy. He would take the seat off to look and it would move just enough to start up.

Deuce seat removal


Hi Anonymous, seat removal can range from the simple and obvious to the complex and baffling for the novice new Harley Davidson owner. Seems like the more expensive the bike is the harder it is to remove the seat. So let's start with the most expensive. 99% of all Harley seats have a male tounge in the front that slides into a female reciever that is either bolted or welded to the frame just behind the fuel tank. For this reason when ever you are removing a seat you must always slide it backwards 3-5 inches. Next they may may have a bolt on each side usually under a flap on the seat. Then there is the seat strap that is secured on both sides, only one side needs to be removed. A single phillips head bolt can secure it to the rear fender or it may have a bracket with two studs secured by nuts or knobs to fasten the rear portion of the seat. On newer model short seats there may be a "T" stud that locks in the rear portion of the seat just a few inches in front of the rear seat bolt, you have to push forward and lift up after you remove the bolt. If you have a pillion pad or passenger seat that snugs up against the front seat there can be a bolt securing the two to the rear fender, you have to get your hand in between the two seats and force seperation of seat material to see and gain acess to the bolt. Finally there is the rear seat bolt in the back that is the caboose of seat fasteners, usually a large chrome bracket, that screws into the rear fender. Care must be exercised in covering this shinny bauble with your hand during the sliding back procedure so as to NOT scratch the tour pak. So when all the hidden and mysterious fasteners have been removed, it's lift up in the rear, slide backwards a few inches and bingo you have mastered the impossible. Good luck and have nice day.

I have been looking for a more comfortable seat for my 2004 Deuce. I like the look of the HD Sundowner deep bucket 51112-00B, Has anyone fitted one? Did it look nice? Was it comfortable? Does it raise...


Hi Abrhamchami, call, take a ride or trailer your bike over to your local dealers service/parts department, I'm sure they will be happy to take your Harley Davidson for a test ride if necessary/possible and offer professional advice and assistance concerning your issue. Good luck have a nice day.

The bk seat on the r6 is uncomfable why is it made so tuf.


Made cheap and strong - normally not used or not used long - built to a price and style - which does not include comfort.

You could say the same about many other motorcycle seats - front AND back.

I hope this answers your question. If you want a comfortable seat, look at the after market seat industry.

Sundowner Deep Bucket Seat for my Deuce


I like the sundowner on the deuce, but I don't know about passenger comfort...IMO I haven't seen a saddlebag configuration that I like yet for the deuce. I'm going with a bag to carry on the luggage rack that attaches to the sissy bar Kuryakyn or Saddleman at this point, and I will be putting the bag on to rest on the seat so I can use it for a back rest. (I don't carry a passenger though). Good luck to you & let us know what you decide to go with.

Any good suggestions for Super Glide Sport bars?


I put pullback Deuce bars, 56330-00, along with pullback risers on my Wide Glide and like the fit. Total pullback is about 11.5". You can also get chrome FXST bars this year, 56154-04, which are close to the Deuce bars. I also put in urethane bushings which do add a little vibration, not bad but I can feel the difference. Deuce: 31" wide, 5" rise, 9" pullback. FXST: 30" wide, 5.75" rise, 9.25" pullback. Reply With Quote
