  • Re: Exhaust upgrade for Electra Glide Classic

    I have that exhaust on my 2001 RK. It works very well. I did have a slight issue putting it together though. Leave everything loose until you have it all assembled then tighten everything up at once. Used their mufflers also. I used that, a Power Commander and a Ness Big Sucker and had a noticeable difference in power over stock.

    We do have the the 562-799, which is the same item with a different finish. The bolt is a 5/16 x 24, 1 1/4" long.

  • Re: Front brake assembly what do i need?

    Z, There are some other ways to help identify the front end. The 71-72 forks had a pinch bolt on the left leg that ran parallel with the bike and should measure 33.5MM. The 73-74 models had a cap on the right leg that held the axle in place using two studs with nuts and washers and will be 35MM. The Logo that Ironhead refers to is located on the inner fender mount, facing in towards the wheel. This stamping, Kayaba for 73-74 and Showa for 1975 and later. And I agree with Jman, pictures speak a thousand

  • Re: Progressive spring package for '69 shovel

    Gary, What is the part # of the springs that you purchased? Are they calling for a 3.5" spacer for stock length fork tubes?

  • Re: kick start new trans.

    dugy, Like FX said, I would check all connections to the coil and any other wires you would have removed to install the transmission. You said it wasn't sparking, that has nothing to do with the tranny. If your Electric start fires the bike, it may be that you are not getting the motor to turn over fast enough, with the kickstarter, to get it to fire. The old one was worn and loose, turned over easier, the new transmission is tight.

  • Re: Progressive spring package for '69 shovel

    Gary, Are you extending the fork tubes on the bike or just replacing the springs with a Progressive Spring kit?

  • Re: Spark Plugs and Leads

    brian, You have numerous options to go with. We have Accel, Autolite, NGK, Champion. I like the Autolite Spark Plugs myself. P# 383-485 is the plug for your bike. When it comes to the plug wires you have more choices than you do with the plugs. We carry Scott Performance, Accel, Nology, RevTech, Magnum. I don't know if you want a certain color or braided? We have had good luck with the Scott and Taylor wires, both located on page 254 of the 2009 Big Book.

  • Re: brake pads

    steve, P# 240-751 is the EBC Kevlar pad for your caliper. P# 241-228 is the Ferodo P compound which works well with stainless rotors. While the Ferodo is still an organic pad, it maintains the stopping power needed and is easier on the rotors.

  • Re: shovelhead engine head gaskets

    brian, The rocker box gaskets are P# JGI-17540-99-X. These are the teflon coated metal gaskets. The P# for the Blue Teflon head gaskets is JGI-16770-A. The first number is in the system and the second one would have to be put in the system, which would take about 24 hours to do. The rocker boxes are sold in pairs and the head gaskets should be each.
