my first CVO
« on: April 23, 2013, 06:43:18 PM »

oI am not new to the board but just bought my first CVO bike.Its a dyna wide glide .Rode it about 2 miles and put inside my shop to detail it.Them wife called and wanted to meet me for lunch.No ins.on this bike yet so I got on my 2010 Ultra and car pulled in front of me and I laid it down.No I a waiting on shoulder surgery so it will be a few mos before I get to ride either.I did notice steering seemed kinda tight.Do I just loosen bolt on top like my ultra?

The 21" front wheel will feel "tighter" than the 16". I would recommend to put more time in the saddle before you start adjusting things.
Heal yourself up.
Good luck

Mine had Sampsons on it when I  got it, have stock exhaust too. 'Put on V&H Shorty Duals when we stroked it to 103", I really like the looks and sound of the V&H.

Wow I just seen this hope your all healed up, I would not lay one down just stay on your breaks tell you hit, the longer you are on your breaks the slower you are going when you hit, if you lay it down you go faster sliding.

I had the V&H 2 into 1 Pro Pipes on my 01 CVO FXDWG2, and they were OK, but didn't sound as good at this bike should. Performance was good, but if you're looking for the deepest sound I would not go with them.
