    Question #1 What bike in the Dyna family run dual disc brake on the front?
    Question #2 Will it fit on a 2007 Wide Glide?
    If I recall there is a thread on this forum about Install dual disc brakes on a Wide Glide.

    The lowrider of about 2000 had a dual disc setup but it will not fit the WG. Different size fork tubes. The baggers have the same diameter tubes as the WG (49MM) on the pre 2007 bikes.

    I though that I saw somewhere it was done.... If the Baggers have the same forks 49m is it possible to do a swap? Are the lowers the same length as the WG?

    Thanks again Glider & Lew for getting back with me.

    I saw a Fat Bob at the dealer last night. It had the 49mm forks with dual disc set up. Now all I need is a little more $$$$$$.

    Good choice for adding more stopping power. Dual front disc brakes was one of the reasons why I got my Sporty Roadster, two finger squeeze is all you need and HD no longer makes it for 2009.:(

    Dual discs for the 06 and up Dynas have been in high demand and Harley has yet to answer the call, except on the 08 and up FXDF.

    A guy named Howard Messner , has done this conversion on a Street Bob successfully and done it right. He basically accomplished this by using the sliders from a VROD, which has 49mm tubes. He had to do some machine work and modify the damper and other internals.

    The fact you want to do this on a Wide Glide complicates your task. The Fat Bob sliders are not a direct swap on your application. You have a 1" axle, where the Fat Bobs have a 25mm axle. This would mean the sliders, new axles, and new bearings. Then you have to deal with the calipers. The Fat Bob uses a different left side caliper, so you would have to purchase both, plus the lines, plus a new master cylinder.


    Good luck and happy pocket digging. This is gonna get expensive.
