2007 Dyna Street Bob - dual front disc conversion

Good day to all!

Has anyone found a dual front disc brake kit conversion for a 2007 Dyna? I've been searching far and wide, to no avail. I am constantly frustrated with the inadequate braking power of my Street Bob's front brake. With the introduction of the 2008 Dyna Fat Bob with dual front discs, maybe the front fork sliders are compatible with the 2007s (they both use 49 mm forks).

Any help or insight on the subject would be greatly appreciated.

Best regards to all from sunny Singapore!

My Dealer is saying that we can do the Fat Bob upgrade to dual disks on 07 Dynas. He is waiting for his first Fat Bob to arrive and then will confirm. Should be a painless bolt up hopefully.

I have a 2006 Low Rider. A very similar bike to yours. Same front braking components I'm sure. I can lock my front wheel, no problem.

I do have to squeeze the lever considerably to do this. I look at it this way: In an "Oh ****" situation, I would rather have lock-up occur close to the limit of my right hand strength. In that situation, I'll be grabbing a bunch of brake and I don't want to have to let off 50% to get the wheel to start turning again, it would take to long.

If you are dead set on dual discs, you might want to post in the wheels, tires, suspension forum.

I thought there were some threads inducating the fork sliders, etal off the VROD would bolt on?

Might be able to find something used if this is true

Don Camillo wants to know Dino or Syn?
Last week on European Bike Week (Faak am See) I saw this bike



I also want to put 2 disc brakes on my FXDWG. I think they use V-rod font end. Maybe somebody know what is difference in lenght between V-rod and FXDWG front fork? DoesVrod front end will be just bolt on? Or maybe I will need to relace the tubes and all internals?

I'll try to figure it out over the next few months. Since i have a VROD (R Street rod model) I hope I can figure it out.

Thanks, Carlrockdrain!

Would you please let me know whether the Fat Bob parts fit once your dealer confirms it? That sure looks like the easiest and most straight-forward conversion.

Cheers!

too expensive for me

I looked at the same thing for my 2000 Wide Glide, but found it to be quite expensive. Have to replace the front wheel to accommodate the right rotor, fork slider to hold the caliper, all lines, and the master cylinder because a front dual disk has an 11/16" fitting instead of the single disk 9/16" fitting. From Harley would be well over $1,000 may 2...

I've installed a stainless wrapped brake line and found that it requires less effort and gives better feedback. I also switched to DOT 5 brakefluid after the DOT 4 ate the paint on the master cylinder. It will lift the rear under the proper conditions...panic stop from 45 mph.

Stopped by the local dealer yesterday, he looked up the part# for the Fat Bob (I have an 07 FXD).

negatives:

1. Apparantly HD says they will not fit earlier models (bit they do not say why).

2. Apparantly the 08 brakes are a little different (I am not confusing the ABS brakes). He didn't know exactly what the difference is.......

Positives:

1.The parts guy thought they might work, the bolt pattern looks the same. He will try to verify as soon as they get another FB on the showroom. The hub is pre drilled to accept another rotor and the bolts holes are there for another caliper.

2. He is very will to help.

The more i looked onto it, the more comfusing. Some say I need a new wheel, master cylinder, etc, IF it fits....

I sort of gave up, will ride the Street Rod when I want to go fast I guess.

Hopefully HD will out with a "kit" so that I will know exactly what I need to get, then I might change my mind again...

Have you changed to Lyndall pads yet? They made a big difference on my Fatboy.
