Foos and his 2004 Dyna Low thread

Its finally here! I picked it up this morning and brought her home. This is my first bike ever and I'm jazzed. I get my full "M" endorsement on 23 January, but have learner's permit, will ride!

1450cc's of air-cooled, fuel injected, v-twin goodness!! Some pics. We all like pics.

All strapped up and ready to go home. Three straps and she didn't move an inch.






Here she is gettin all salty behind my truck. Now I "have" to spend a few hours in the garage cleaning her up!




And home, about to go for her first ride in my name. Was a touch dicey. The guy had just changed out the triple tree so the alignment is a little tweaked plus one 500m section of my road is just about solid ice, but I did fine!








And my MoCo approved riding socks!

Thanks folks! I can already tell I'm going to like this bike. Talk about easy to work on.

Got it into the garage and starting going over a few things.

Momma says this is why I don't have nice things...




I tried to figure out how to disconnect the turn signals and hand control wires, but couldn't find them buried in the loom. So I pulled out the POS Power Commander III (up for sale soon) and tidied the front wires up a little bit. Much gooder.




She had sporty shocks on her so those had to come off and stock Dyna shocks put back on.




The guy was also not running rear turn signals so I had to install those. He also forgot to include the little standoff chrome jimmer jammer (technical term) so I had to get a little creative. I'll figure out how to clean up the wires later, but this works cleanly for now.






A lot of cleaning, some more wiring - he cut the fuel gauge wire when he removed the tank, dumb ass - a little de-stickering, and popped the old man's air cleaner cover back on. And it started up after having everything ripped apart!!




So I've been a Harley owner for all of 12 hours now and I think I'm on a good start! More to follow as I keep working on stuff. I can't help myself and will constantly be messing with this bike.

LOL - I had to call 3-4 times as I was taking things apart. Questions like, "Is this bike metric or standard?" since the first couple bolts were either 1/2" or 13mm. And a few other questions as well. I'll get the hang of this bike yet!

Very nice! My first is a 1998 Dyna SG. I love it and I'm sure you will love yours also. How high are your bars? I'd like those on mine.

Great ride, post, & pic's. Glad there was someone there to capture those 'My New HD Grin' shots.

I just measured and they are 8.5" from the top of the tree to bottom of the horizontal bar.

Hahah! I forced my wife to come out into the "cold" - it is North Carolina after all - to snap a couple. I couldn't get her into the garage to show all the little tweaks though because I spilled gas all over the place like 8 times when I was getting the tank off. She has something against gas fumes, to me it just made working on the bike a little more interesting....

Those little balance hoses need quick release fittings like the main feed has!

If anyone checks and knows, my throttle and idle cable elbows are loose up at the bars. Loose as in I can rotate them as far as the physical cable length will let me. Is this normal or might this be a result of homeboy laying it down?

My old man sent me his old bags as well. He's getting his Dyna turned into a trike and won't need them anymore. I, however, will!

Love those bars. I got a set of Carlini's on my '03 FXDL and they fit me like a glove.
