Installation Guide For Dyna Series
Have someone hold the bike upright.
Either to the front or back of the kickstand housing area under the bike (HD is not consistent with their placement) there will be a cotter pin holding a 3/8' unthreaded bolt. Remove this cotter pin as well as the washer behind it. Save the washer. Needle nose pliers and a screwdriver work well to remove the pin. Use the screwdriver inside the loophole of the cotter pin to steady the pin and use the needle nose pliers to work out the cotter pin.
Release the spring from the post under the frame of the bike. Your screwdriver will work well on this step also.
Remove the 3/8" unthreaded bolt from the frame/housing area. Use your screwdriver and mallet to tap the bolt out.
Remove the kickstand housing assembly from the frame of your bike. Sometimes the assembly will just drop out after removing the bolt, other times you will need to rotate the kickstand halfway up and shake it loose.
Remove the bolt, lockstop and pivot block from the stock kickstand and replace onto the new kickstand in the same manner. Lubricate the post of the new kickstand with grease.
install the kickstand/housing back onto the frame.
Replace the 3/8" unthreaded bolt through the kickstand housing assembly. Replace the washer and install a new cotter pin to secure the bolt. (NEW COTTER PIN NOT INCLUDED)
IMP recommends the use of a new spring, HD Part #50057-91. Original springs may be reinstalled if in excellent condition. Put one end of the spring into the kickstand, rotate the stand to the 'up' position, place the other end of the spring around a long, narrow screwdriver, use the screwdriver to shimmy the spring back onto the post under the frame. (SPRING NOT INCLUDED)
Check bumper placement. Adjust the bumper that comes with you Dyna bike so that the kickstand comes as close to the frame and primary cover as possible without contact. If your bumper has fallen off while riding, replace it with HD Part #50054-90. (BUMPER NOT INCLUDED)
Swing the kickstand up and down a few times. If the spring is not set properly it will pop off. This step allows you to inspect the overall operation of your new kickstand to ensure correct operation.
Polish it up and ride! Your new kickstand is made of 17-4 Stainless Steel and should be polished regularly with any quality metal polish. 17-4 Stainless Steel is a corrosion resistant formula of steel.
