Jack at Knuckledraggers also cut a custom length of stainless steel for the new shift linkage.

Next up are the saddlebags. Need to be painted, then mounted. Mounting requires relocation of the rear turn signals. Any clues as to manufactures's products and ideally URL would be appreciated.

I want it to look good, look like it would be factory CVO

How does the quick detach hardware for sissy bar attach to the FXDSE2 ?

Does a hole need to be drilled in the beautiful rear fender support cover?

Any alternative? Experience with this?

Thanks

Update.
Wife loves loves loves: the bike; the heated solo Corbin saddle; the foot (floor) boards.

Question.
I want to add a pull back riser without (hopefully) changing the handlebars or cables. 1.5" back would be good. Up not needed so long as clears the tank.

Anybody do this? Experience? Product recommended to accomplish the task?

BTW, I have not added the hard saddlebags yet. Whenever she rides her Dyna CVO, I am riding along with my Road Glide with plentiful packing capacity.

Did my first 75 mile ride this morning on my wife's 2008' FXDS2 with 110 ci engine.

Awesome engine. Tons of torque.
Brakes felt a bit soft.

Handled well through the twisties.

Now I "need" one as my own.
I've got one for you in the selling section!! Beautiful 07 FXDSE
