    Default My FXR2 transformation thread

    I bought this bike a little over a year and a half ago and feel in love with it. I've built a few sporties but this was my first big twin bike.

    This is pretty much how it's been since I bought it from a guy in Omaha.



    Wide Glide conversion, Thunderheader, tall apes and turn signal delete.

    The really big thing I disliked about the old 80 inch was a dog compared to the 1250's I've built in the past. So this winter I decided to change the bike completely. What started out as a "I need a little more power" has turned into a "Let's rebuild the whole damn bike!" project.

    The short list of mods
    *Ultima 120CI
    *Barrnet Clutch
    *Mikuni HRS 45
    *Stock rear fender
    *Narrow Glide Trees
    *Racetech fork kit
    *SM Pre-Loaders
    *Glide Pro motor mounts
    *CCE Swingarm bearings
    *Adding Turn signals back on
    *Ape delete for custom bars
    *Powder Coating the frame

    So far here are the progress pictures, now I'm in the putting back together stages.

    Last picture of it together with my old man's Dyna



    Quick install of the new rear fender



    Ripped the Primary apart


    Old motor out!


    Little 80 inch next to the new 120


    Everything out besides wiring


    Wiring gone


    Ready for blasting and Powder


    Frame back from coating


    New narrow tree all polished up


    Back Together Stages=


    Swing arm/Trans back in


    The 120 shoehorned into the frame



    That's where I'm at right now, next I'll throw the primary on and still waiting on my bars and such to come in from Chrome.

    So I've ran into a snag with the motor, I'm gonna have to wait until Ultima releases the Mikuni style intake for the 120. I have the S&S flanged style, even with the adapter it sticks out too far.

    Also with this Race Tech front end kit, how do I know what springs to put on the Gold Valves? Should I just call Racetech?
