    Trying to get rid of that "flat rear tire'' feeling on my Roadglide, should be here by Wednesday. Installation looks pretty straight forward for a novice, but I have had things similar to this suprise me before. If anyone has any suggestions I would love to hear them.
    Have a great day.!

    Welcome Jimmy to the HDTalking forum. Looked up in Search tab at the top and found this Self Help tip to give you a bit of a background on the subject. Keep in touch as to how your mods went.:D

    This sounds like a worth while peice of equipment. I've been thinking of putting a Progressive Suspension Touring Link on my '04 Electra Glide for the same problem. Does anyone know how these 2 compare? I know the Progressive is less expensive. And does the True track hang below the frame any considerable amount?
    Thanks

    I installed the "Trackula" set from True-Track on my '03 UC in '08. Made a huge difference in the ride. On my bike, the kit has a frame that bolts to the rear of the oil pan with replacement screws. The link is attached to this and to a "dog bone" that is fastened in the frame channel cross-member. This is exactly like that show in the link above. The right side of mine has been scraped a number of times from some hard turns, but only on the structural member that is very beefy anyway. No issue in my opinion.

    But I also like the rest of the set which was a replacement for the swingarm bushings, swingarm pivot shaft, isolators and the front motor mount. All those changes together really solidified the ride.

    TQ

    20-00LR I was told that this was for factory lowered bikes. Was also told that I would loose only 1/8th inch ground clearance.

    The link NewHavenHD posted says the problem exist on FL models 94-2005. I ride an 07 FLHRC and have never experienced any wobble or back end rolling out. My question is, did the motor company add a stabilizer or change the swing arm in order to remove this issue beginning with 06 models? Do I need to consider installing one of these even though I've never experienced the "wobble"?

    Don't know whether I should attempt the install or not, heck I can't even remember what kinda bike I have. It is going on my '08 Streetglide, guess I just had a Roadglide on my mind.
    Anyway, the kit just arrived so I'm starting the install in about 10 minutes, (once I figure out which bike is mine)!!:small3d011:
