I need to remove the top bolt for the rear shock on my Harley Davidson Dyna Street Bob FXDB motorcycle in order to install a sissy bar. Is this something i can do myself or do i need special tools? I'm not a mechanic but can usually do basic stuff myself.

Hi there
You spoke to me earlier with the Instant Messenger and I would just like to apologize for leaving without saying anything. What happened was that I opened a page that had the contents to which you were looking for but the age was too big and Mozilla Firefox restarted which made me lose the connection while i was speaking to you.

I have found some information: You need to loosen the bolt holding your seat onto the bike, once your seat has been pulled back, you can remove the bolt that is holding your shock in place, then you can put your sissy bar on and put the shock back on and then put your seat back on. I hope this is helpful to you and once again i would like to say sorry for what happened today.

Keep us posted and thank you for using our service.

Check your primary chain. Don't know if it is, my 07 used to do the same - feels like something hitting more on the left side.

Grinding noise when transmission is in neutral


That noise may be coming from your primary, not the tranny. Try adjusting the clutch, and (of course) make sure you have the correct amount of chaincase fluid in your primary. If that doesnt do it Change the trans fluid and see if that helps

Tensioners


Drain the primary and remove the primary chaincase cover. There are 2 bolts with lockplates and washers thats hold the shoe. Remove them, install the new shoe, reinstall the 2 bolts. The lockplate is installed outside of the washers. Thats it

Drive belt


You have to drop the swingarm, the belt wraps the arm, so you have to take it loose from the frame in order to get the belt in place. I would recommend a service manual for your bike, for all the torque specs of the components you will need to remove, ie... brake caliper, shocks, swing arm pivot bolt, etc.., and for the rear wheel and belt alignment, and the belt tension. The belt tension is crucial, if it not tight enough you will wear the belt out faster or it will slip, and if it's too tight you can break the belt or spin the splines out of the front drive pulley. I know this from experience, overtightened the belt on mine earlier this summer, was fine with my wieght, but spun the pulley at a ralley with a passenger. If you need any further assistance or have any questions, feel free to ask.

Sissy Bar Install on a 2008 Screaming Eagle Dyna


Been a while since I've done one of these, but I believe you have to take the shocks loose at the fender struts and drop them down and out of the way. The signals should go back on in the same place, no relocation. On a couple of these I've had to get longer bolts for the signals, but it may not be required, so keep this in mind. And, yes, I know, it would be nice if HD would include the bolts or at least tell you about the possibility of needing longer bolts, I've said this to myself many times in the past.

Brake lights stay on 07 hd fxdb


Have you changed your bars? Check the micro switch behind the brake lever in the housing. Might have moved a bit.
Check that both filaments of the brake light are good and one is not broken.
While you have the brake light cover off check the connectors into the main body of the light. On my Bob (same year) They all plug into there and can be unplugged easily and re-inserted. One might have not been put in all the way home on assembly.
Hope it helps.
