SOURCE: rear wheel not centre of frame on harley davidson

The easiest way to check rear wheel alignment on a Dyna is by the two little "witness marks" on the rear swing arm. These two marks are just forward of the axle. One on each side of the swingarm. Measure from the mark back to the center of the axle on each side. The distance should be the same with the proper final drive belt tension.

As for the rear wheel being "centered" with the frame, the only way to check that is to take the fuel tank and rear fender off, stretch a string from the center of the steering head along the frame on back across the rear wheel. Simply looking at the way the wheel is positioned in the swingarm may be deceptive. The swingarm may not be symetrical due to the necessity to clear the final drive pulley and such. The engine alignment shouldn't have anything to do with the rear wheel alignment.

For something as serious as wheel alignment within the frame, I'd take the bike to a dealer somewhere and have them check it out. On some bikes, there is supposed to be an offset betweent he front wheel and the rear wheel. Use a piece of straight piece of square aluminum tubing to check wheel alignment.

My right side foot peg shaft is loose. How do I tighten it?

If you are talking about the front foot peg. Take the screw that holds the peg to the mount out. Inside the mount you will see an allen that tightens the mount to the shaft you will need to tighten this allen. Then put the peg back on and your done.

I have a 75 flh with the passenger peg mounted to the primary inspection this stock. if not where do they mount

Yes, this is where the passenger foot peg on the left side of the bike goes. There is an arm that clamps onto the round stub on the inspection cover and is afjustable to almost any angle. The right side foot peg support bolts to the end of the transmission and also has an adfustable arm that clamps onto a stub on it. Then the pegs go on the end of the arms. Go to this site and take a look . I'm pretty sure they didn't move the peg brackets to the seat tubes of the frame until 1977. If your bike has two holes in a welded-on tab on the rear of the down tubes behind the primary and the transmission, you can use the later model peg brackets. But, if your bike has no holes in the frame or the swingarm for passenger peg brackets, this is the only style you can use and stay original. You could fabricate and weld on tabs to later model peg brackets or use clamp on brackets and pegs.

Good Luck

Need installation Instructions for forward controls part5054034 on a harley fxdl. kcint, doesnt send them parts when you buy them.

I'm not absolutely certain but this is what I think you need. If you look at your bike now, you'll see that you have what we call "mid-mount" controls. Look a the foot peg support that mounts on to the frame on either side of the bike and holds the foot pegs. In order to change to Forward Controls, you must have the foot peg support for the forward controls. Now, look at your frame where the front down tubes come down and bend to go under the engine. There should be a boss on each side of the frame with two bolt holes in them. The footrest supports for forward controls (FXDWG) bolt here and your kit bolts to that. I've looked at the kit at K.C. International's site and it doesn't appear that those parts are included in the kit. If you'll go to this site, you can see what I'm talking about.

They list them as Footrest Support RH & LH Chrome - $152 each. You may can get them from Harley for less. Check and see.

Good Luck

Yes. Hook the positive cable to the starter solenoid terminal, (where the battery cable mounts) and hook the ground to an exposed bolt,(or nut), near the starter, (or anywhere on the frame).

How do i install foot pegs on a 2005 sportster 1200 custom

Unless they've changed something that I don't know about, simply remove the pegs that are on the bike now and replace them with whatever type of pegs you want.

Now, if your bike is equipped with forward controls and you are wishing to install a set of mid mount foot pegs, you will need to purchase the foot peg mounting pieces. You need to go to a dealership, look at the parts manuals, and order the parts you need from them. Or, you could look around at a swap meet and possibly find the parts you need used. By doing this, you would have both mid mount and forward controls. Just make sure there is no interference with any linkage for the rear brakes or shifting. I have not done this particular job on a Sportster but have done it on a Dyna Wide Glide once. Turned out nice but the control linkage is different on a Sportster.

My MT-03 is vibrating an making a bit of a tattling sound

Hi mattandem

I have replied already to your other post... didn't see this one... not sure what the vibration through the peg could be caused by as they mount directly to the frame. The frame being a substantial structure to the bike means that the vibration is being created anywhere on the frame,and you are feeling it in your foot peg. The only thing that comes to mind is that perhaps one of the tank mounting rubbers is not seated properly, or inadvertently rolled away on the garage floor. This is what I would be checking for.
