Sissy Bar Install on a 2008 Screaming Eagle Dyna

I have a 2008 Harley Davidson Screaming Eagle Dyna that I'm trying to install a low sissy bar onto.

Do I have to remove the rear shocks or remove and relocate the rear directional signals to complete this install?

Thanks for your Assistance

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.

How to install a sissy bar


There are different mounts for a sissy bar. If it is a permanent mount sissy bar it mounts on the side fender braces. If you bought it new, the replacement bolts and shims( if required) should hve came with it

How do remove the seat? I've removed the bolt attached to the rear fender. The book says to pull the seat back to release the hook from the frame? The seat doesn't want to pull back toward the rear.


If you have a sissy bar on the bike, you'll have to lift the rear of the seat a bit to get the clearance necessary for the seat to slide to the rear. If that doesn't work, take the sissy bar off by removing the two small bolts on either side of the sissy bar side plates. With the sissy bar off, the seat should come off easily.

Good Luck

How to change low sissy bar on a 2000 FLSTC


Look on either side of the sissy bar down near the base. There are usually two bolts on each side. Remove these bolts and the sissy bar pulls out of the side plates which stay on the bike.

Good Luck

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...


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.
FixYa for all your troubleshooting needs.
