I have an 07 FXST. is the front end considered a wide glide type front end?
Yes it is:s
I believe they are similar but I am pretty sure the fork tubes are a bigger diameter on the Wide Glide. The WG also has more rake but I believe it is in the frame but could be wrong on that.
Thanks appreciate it. Zorrgg
i got the same model bike. Just what is the difference between a "Wide Glide" and a "Narrow Glide" ??
The width between the forks the wide glide front end allows for fitting a wide front wheel
easiest way to tell is to look at the front fender if the mount arms are splayed out rather than straight down you will have a wide glide front end at one point it was only the wide glide and softail custom that came with a wide glide front end
if the front fender and wheel from an fl fits then it is a wide glide front end
Wide glide tubes are 49 mm don't know about yours
49mm on the newer tubes and 41mm on the older ones.
What year was it they changed over glider.
So will a fork brace for a wide glide fit a fxstc
