You need the complete front end including the wheel. The FXDWG is somewhat of an oddball in that a lot of parts fit only that bike. A lot of other parts will not fit a Wide Glide. This even applies to the exhaust system.

Measure the diameter of your upper fork tubes, they're 39 mm tubes. The Wide Glide uses 41 mm tubes. The Wide Glide also uses a 21" front wheel.

Triple tree removal


This really just depends on the crew involved and the equipment used. Without a little more information, it's a little hard to tell how the pricing will turn out. I would suggest calling local contractors who do free estimates.

Hi there, I have a 98 HD Springer that I have rotated the handle bars forward to accomodate my reach. Since I did that, the handle bar mount has some up and down play from frame. Other than the bolts...


If you're talking about where the front fork stem goes up through the steering head of the frame, I'd take the bike to a dealer to get this fixed as there is a certain procedure for tightening this. Now if you're talking about the handlebar risers, the is a big nut or bolt on the bottom of each riser. You probably need new rubber bushings in the upper triple tree for the risers.

Getting the front forks out there bent


Ok to get the front forks out, first you must take everything off the front of the bike such as fairing, headlight, windshield, nachelle, etc. Don't forget to disconnect the battery first. Then lift the bike off the ground and take the front wheel and the front fender off.

Look on the backside of the lower triple tree. There is a pinch bolt there. Loosen the bolt and spray some penetrating oil around the upper fork tube. Then take the large "nut" off the tube at the top triple tree. You may have to drive a chisel into the slot on the lower triple tree from the bottom side to spread it a bit. Then work the entire fork tube out of the steering head. Do the same with the other side.

Good Luck

How much trouble is it to change front fork seals on a 2000 wide glide and do you have instructions on it?


If, notice I said "if", your bike has the standard 41mm wide glide front end, changing the fork seals is not that difficult.

Get the bike up off the ground on a stable lift. Safety is paramount.

Now take the front wheel and fender off. Take the large "Bolt" out of one of the fork tubes at the upper triple tree. There are special sockets made to do this with so that you won't scratch your chrome upper tree. Loosen the pinch bolt on the lower triple tree. Put some lubricant on the fork tube and work it down and out of the triple trees. You may have to spead the lower triple tree by driving a chisel into the slot from the bottom side.

Once you have one of the fork tubes out. Remove the plug at the top. There will be a large spring under the plug. Usually it doesn't have much pressure on it with the tube fully extended and if it's the stock spring. With the plug and the spring out, you can pour the oil out of the tube. Notice which direction the spring comes out of the tube. I must go back in with the tapered end down.

Look on the bottom of the tube where the axle goes through. You'll see an allen head or socket head bolt in there. It' should be an 8mm sized bolt but it takes a "piloted" hex key. Now, you can use a standard hex key but it must be in new condition since the bolt head is so shallow. I have found that a hex key socket used with an air wrench is best to get the screw out. With the screw, you can now seperate the upper fork tube from the lower slider.

Remove the retainer ring in the top of the slider and pry out the old seal. Install the new seal in the proper direction. Reassemble the fork assembly. Now, add the proper amount of oil to the tube before you install the upper plug. The forks take 10.2 to 11.2 ounces of oil each. The lower figure is for a "Wet" refill and the higher number is for a "Dry" refill. If you take your fork tube apart and pour out all the oil, use the "dry" figure of 11.2 ounces type "E" or 30 weight fork oil. If the forks are too stiff with this oil, drop back to 20 weight fork oil.

Good Luck
Steve

Fork needs charging how do I go about it?I need to put new seals and fluid in the left side fork. How do I go about it?


Start by lifting the bike off the ground and making sure it is steady and won't fall over. Remove the front wheel and front fender. Make sure you keep up with where each spacer goes.

Loosen the clamp bolt in the lower triple tree. Take the large "nut" off the top of the fork tube at the upper triple tree. At this point, the fork leg should start to slide downward out of the triple trees. But, most of the time they won't. Take a small chisel and locate the slot on the lower triple tree. Drive the chisel into the slot from beneath to spread the clamp. Make sure the clamp bolt is all the way out or at least very loose to allow the triple tree to expand. You can use a brass drift to help drive the fork leg down from the top. Use plenty of oil to help it slide.

Once you have the fork leg out, you can drain the fluid by either removing the drain plug on the lower slider and pumping the fluid out or simply take the top cap out of the tube. When you take the top cap out of the tube, the large sping in the tube will push the cap up. I don't think it will be too strong to get back in. On the earlier models, they weren't. With the top cap off, take the spring out and pour the old fluid out. Look at the lower slider where the axle goes through, you'll see a hex head bolt. Use an 8mm hex key to remove the bolt. This is a special piloted key. You can use a regular hex key but it must be in very good shape. I'd recommend using one with an air wrench. Once you get the bolt out, simply pull the upper tube out of the lower slider.

Replace the seal in the lower slider and reassemble in reverse order. Make sure you install the large spring with the tapered end down. Refill with the appropiate amount of fluid for a "dry" fork tube. I used 30 weight fluid in mine but that may be too stiff for you. If so, 20 weight is the next common. Honda may have a 25 weight fluid. Honda has some wierd fork oil weights.

Good Luck

FXRS CONV -INSTALL TRIPLE TREES TO MAKE A WIDE GLIDE FRONT END


As long as the triple clamp stem is the same diameter, the triples can be changed out. As far as why, you're guess is as good as mine. Mine is that some people may like the narrow or mid glide front end, and an 883 just wouldn't look right as a wide glide.
