    Crossposted at vtwinforum but this may be handy for someone.

    Attached are pics of my sidestand conversion using a common Shovelhead footrest bracket. Installed pic is my '88 FXR, other pic is a rusted plate I picked up as a pattern so I can make a nice one out of some stainless scrap for my FXLR. My '88 had the stock stand bend and the mount bend later so since I prefer the Jiffy stand I dug around in my leftovers and found the Shovel plate is a bolt-on to the FXR forward peg mount. I used two high strength socket head cap screws (one is hidden by the sidestand and wrenching clearance between it and sidestand is best with a socket head bolt) and red Loctite. No problems over a few years use including kickstarting now and then and I'm not kind to that bike. Those forward peg mounts are robust. If I managed to tweak one there is ample room to weld in a piece of say 3/8" plate to pick up four sidestand mount holes, but I don't see that happening.

    Next to classic Harley sidestands others suck so the FXLR will get modded too, and I'm ahead of the game on the FXR when I get off my ass and install my FLT gearbox.

    Harley part info = 49129-77, FOOTREST BRACKET, left - chrome but other versions of that plate style exist.

    Hey all, I'm having a hell of a time finding a stock rear fender for my 1990 FXR. I don't want to spend a fortune, it's just a project bike to bang around on. All the fenders out there I keep finding are for shovel heads. Anyone have any suggestions, or one for sale on the cheap?

    Don't know if this is the correct thread, but it is about a FXR, anyhow, have a Chopper Guys FXR frame that originally was built in San Diego with a sporty motor, had a huge hunk of iron for a rear engine mount, came on a Greyhound bus, now it has Sputhe fatvo cases, evo wheels, twin cam top end, makes about 100 cubes, EV-5 cam, Super G carb, Dyna S single fire ignition, anyway, this thing has an appetite for coils, now it seems to have burned up the battery, my local indy guy spoke to another guy who has my same kind of setup and he said he had to go to a 17 amp charging system versus the 32 amp I have to stop eating coils. Has anybody else had any problems like this and how did you fix it????

    hmmm, i'd done some reading that alleged you could use multistrada ohlins because they're long enough.... research continues..

    or you could use an xr1200x big piston showa fr end as this will bolt straight on an would be cheaper than a set of ohlins.

    Hey guys I've been looking all over. I'm thinking of getting tbars but don't know how big I can go without changing out controls and wires. Hoping I can get some 12" and be ok. I have a 94 fxr btw. Looking at fxr divisions bars because they are gnarly. But west coats mx bars have my eye too. Anyone with experience that can shed some light? Thanks!

    I put 8'' straight risers and Bars off an Iron 883 which brings it up to about 10. The speedo/tach and pulled a bit , I think I pulled out the speedo cable at the wheel.

    your speedo and tach were mounted to the bars correct? all i have is a speedo in the center of the dash so those wont be a problem.
