    Cheers lads,

    Exhaust is Bassani Road Rage 3.

    Shocks are custom built by Motorcycle Mayhem in Miami, Howard is the Ohlins guru and I spoke to him for a long time about my intended plans/purpose for the bike and came up with a custom combo that is based around the HD215 shock. It's all valved and sprung for my weight with a few additional extras. Even with a full custom setup I saved around $500 then buying the shocks from the Ohlins Aus dealers, and that would be a stock spring stock valving setup.

    They are 13 3/8' long, can be adjusted +5 -5mm from that length via a threaded adjuster. This was very useful because a lot of Dyna's have geometry issues even from standard with engine alignment, so you can actually correct the misalignment at the shock. I had to use about 1mm longer on the right side to have everything square.

    As far as riding goes, I slapped them on then did the usual lap around the streets to check no clunks or interference with the pipe and all was good, been too busy to give them a proper go (and double demerits I cant be trusted)

    Once I give them a proper ride I'll put a report up in the product review section.

    the online shocks you have sound great!! as the bikes come just mass production, so a custom tune in that area make a good gain , if you ride hard.!!

    the pipes look custom built too.

    I just figured you sold the ex wife (or husbands) WRX and bought a Harley with the proceeds.

    Am I alone in thinking that?

     Graeme, that is one very tidy FXDL. I bought my first HD in 1998, a Evo FXDL, 6 months before they announced the TC88. Guessing yours is close to 1999? Looks bloody immaculate. FXDL, FXDF and a FLTRX later (approx 150K km) now back to a 2016 FXDL! Enjoy mate!

    Installed the lucky saved seat today, haven’t been able to test it yet. 
    Changes the look of the bike completely in my opinion

     Very happy with the choice, got to go for a test ride today. Comfort level is good, and for sure it locks you into the bike, no sliding in turns and the high back keeps you still on hard acceleration. 

    Very confidence inspiring being a little higher and closer to the bars.

     So it looks like you're changing it back to stock or are the pic's around the other way?
