1) Can not find this spec.
2) C50 rake is 33 degrees, Fat Boy's is 32.
3) Many have had over 50k miles without any major engine work. Luck and riding conditions determine this to a large degree, but I would say that most need to start thinking about valve/ring work at 60K.
4)Valve adjustment recommended at every 7500 miles; about a 4-hour backyard job, but doable without any real specialized tools. (I've been letting mine slide for 19k, just because it's been running so good!) Cam chain tensioner failures have been reported, but this seems to be the exception, and the use of synthetic oil may lessen the chances, Problems with water getting to the rear shaft splines have prompted owners to pull them and add Molybdenum paste at each rear tire change, and this requires replacing the oil seal- about $11.
5) Depends on current mileage and price, but with a modicum of proper care, you could expect 50k miles of riding without major issues.

FIRST remove the front wheel and brake caliper.

SECOND remove the front fender

THIRD remove the slider tube cap, spacer and oil seal from the top of one fork side.

FOURTH loosen the pinch bolt and pull the fork side from the brackets.

FIFTH repeat Steps 3 and 4 for the other fork side.

Rear brake dragging


Hi Doug, and the usual suspects are:
1. Brake disc badly worn or warped.
2. Insufficient brake pedal freeplay.
3. Brake caliper pistons/bore contaminated or damaged.
4. Master cylinder piston not returning all the way.
5. Brake line inner liner collasped
6. Dot 3 used in a Dot 5 system
Good luck

Will exhaust from 2003 harley fat boy fit a 1999 harley fat boy


I doubt it. The Fat Boy is a member of the Softail family. In 1999, the Softails were running Evolution engines. They didnt' go to the TC-88B engine until 2000 and that required a frame change. I don't think it will fit but you never really know until you try it.

2001 harley davidson fat boy fork seals leak


Either the seals were not installed correctly or your tubes and sliders are excessively worn. Not changing the fork oil at recommended intervals will cause excessive wear. Overfilling the forks will cause leaks too.
