The parts list is changing all the time, especially on newer bikes, making a parts manual obsolete/incorrect every month or so. Most HD dealer parts guys are willing to look up part #'s for you over the phone, so it negates the need for a hard copy manual.Ed Y said:I'd also recommend getting the parts manual.
Exactly!! The part #'s that do change are normally superceded by a later version which means A or B or C is added. Simple enough to verify at Chicago HD online site. The illustrated components are the most important feature.LongRide said:I agree with Ed Y, Harley part numbers don't change that much, besides the old number can always be crossed to the new number. The parts manual also has great illustrated break down of component items. I use it all the time.
