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.

your float is sticking or saturated or maybe just a little **** stuck between the needle and seat if it is the latter it might clear with some 4000 rpm reving if that clears it you need to find where its comming from bad petcock or even cheap fuel line if reving doesnt clear it (no offense)take it to a shop,inside a carb is no place for a carpenter

Harley Heated Hand Grips not working


The harley heated handgrips are notorious for failing.  Some people have reported finding a loose connection on the ground wire, like they did not crimp the terminal on the end of the wire at the factory.  If they are wired externally of the bars (almost impossible to wire those any other way) then it should be easy to follow the wire down to inside the headlight bucket or in the nacelle or dash, (depending on what model bike) and check the connections.  If both grips quit at the same time then it's probably wiring.  If one quit first, then it may be the grip itself.
If you need to replace them, I would highly recommend not buying the HD brand anymore, and instead choose Polly grip heaters.  They are made for snowmobiles and have a long list of benefits over the HD type: - fits internally in the bar end, so you can use any grips you want - cost $35!!  compared to $250 for HD - easy to install
I have installed over 7 sets in my friends bikes and not one single failure.

Clutch


There is a retaining clip that holds the plates in the basket. The assembly will need to be depressed in order to get the retainer in place. You can get a diagram, or at least view the diagram for the assembly at the parts counter of your local HD dealer. The local dealer here has stopped printing out the diagrams for me, but will still let me view them. Generally that's all you need anyway, just to get the idea.

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.
