A swingarm conversion kit that replaces the stock Cleve Bloc style swingarm bushings with spherical bearings.
The conversion over to spherical bearings in the early models dramatically changes the handling and tracking of all the FLT and FXR models. This allows for the swingarm to react quicker to any harsh road conditions keeping the wheel in contact with the road. The use of spherical bearings also helps negate any lateral and torsional movement in the swingarm by the shear dynamics of a spherical bearing.
2 versions available, with or without replacement axle.
Covers all 80-01 FLT, FXR models. Also, coincides with Harley-Davidsons change from the Cleve Bloc bushing to spherical bearings in all 02-08 FLT models.
Along with the installation of the Swingarm Conversion Kit, Custom Cycle Engineering recommends the replacement of the old rubber mount isolators (H-D#47564-86B).
