    I have an 02 Dyna super glide. The bike came with polished aluminum rocker covers and I would like to replace them with chrome covers. I was just wondering if it was possible to replace the covers without removing the engine. If I just remove the fuel tank is there enough clearance to change the covers? If I have to pull the engine it probably isn't worth it.

    Absolutely get the manual. You must remove the rocker arms etc., and there is a procedure to rotate the engine when reassembling them. Also, don't buy cheap chrome rocker boxes, the possibility of leaks is not worth it.
