Progressive is a good brand. Here's a link to a page with a number of good quality shocks on it.

the job of replacing the shocks is not difficult. Just do one shock at the time.

Good Luck

1997 dyna wide glide excessive vibration from rear almost feels like its bottomong out when you hit a bump readjusted shocks seemed to help a little cant see anywhere anythings rubbing even realigned...

Check the rear engine mounts. The "axle" that holds the rear swingarm also has the rubber motor mounts in it. These may be worn and need replacing. Also, the shocks may be shot. Due to their open design, oil can leak out of them and be washed away before you notice it. The results is a pair of shocks that are no good. Shocks are expensive. If you know some that will let you swap out a set long enough to try a different set of shocks, try that. Make sure the shocks are the same length. Other than the shocks and the swing arm mounts, there's nothing else there to cause this.

Good Luck

I want to see the rear wheel assembly on2004 dyna wide glide. axle,washers,and spacers.

Go to this site Click OEM parts. Choose H-D and your year and model of your bike. Click on rear wheel. It may not show the the '04 FXDWG but you can try looking a year earlier or later to find what you need.

Putting new belt on wide glide do have to remove clutches and chain drive transmission?

yes. the entire primary drive must be taken off and the inner primary on all Big Twin bikes to change the final drive belt. The good thing on the Dyna is that you don't have to pull the rear swing arm like you do on the other models. Just remove the rear wheel and the left side shock.

Good Luck

How to changr drive belt

To change the final drive belt on a Wide Glide is a big job but not quite as big as on some other models.

You will have to pull the entire primary drive assembly, including the clutch and the inner primary cover from the engine and transmission. You'll have to remove the exhaust system, the starter, the rear wheel, and the left side rear shock. On a Wide Glide, you do not have to remove the swing arm.

There are some "special tools" necessary to do the job as well. You'll need a torque wrench capable of applying 150-165 pounds of torque to the engine sprocket shaft nut and 60-80 pounds LEFT-HANDED torque to the mainshaft nut in the clutch assembly. Not all torque wrenches do left-handed torque. You'll also need a "locking bar" to lock up the primary drive while you apply these torques to prevent the engine from turning. A good solid way to get the bike off the ground is necessary as well.

It's an all-day job for an experienced mechanic with the proper tools to do the job with.

Good Luck

2005 dyna wide glide...fuel injected...have engine vibration during is smooth free wheeling at 70 mph...vibration returns with engine speed...need help

I'd check the motor mounts. The front mount is easy to get to but the rear isn't quite so easy. I'd check the front mount and the top engine stabilzer.

I assume that you've owned this bike long enough to know how it should feel. The Dyna series has rubber engine mounts. They do a very good job of dampening engine vibration once the engine gets up in it's rpm range. When the engine is idling, the vibrations can be felt then. When accelerating, you can feel some vibration but it should be bad.

Check your engine mounts and your primary chain adjustment. If it's something to do with the fuel system, I'm afraid that a dealer is going to have to check that for you. Good Luck!

Does any one know if progressive shocks off a 1997 dyna wide glide will fit a 2003 dyna wide glide.

They should fit, just measure the length of the shock from eyelet to eyelet. if you don't have the measurements of the other bike just call a local dealer to find out the standard length
