View Full Version : Swingarm / oil tank

06-27-2017, 1:20 AM
Couple questions:

Thinking about switching to a round swingarm. other than the swingarm itself what do I need to look for? Axle etc?

Want to switch to a wrap around oiltank. Does anyone know of one that will fit a 79 flh80 and take a normal battery? I don't want to run an antigravity style battery.

And the dumb one... kinda want to powerwash my bike...hit it with some de-greaser / clean the motor and such. Any reason this is a bad idea?

Slot is wider. they had an axle and a spacer with indexing flats...
shocks were longer...

lots out there, check the specs in the catalogs

just dont force water into seals and or bearings. or gizmos

Thank you.

What catalog / companies would you recommend I look at?

Use the factory parts catalogs.

I used a paughco wrap around on my 73fxe used regular battery. call paughco, they were helpful finding what fit.

when I power wash my stuff I let it run, something stuck with me from pops. might be bullshit?
what they ^^^^ said don't force water where it shouldn't go.
