DYNAS

THIS 2003 JOB HERE IS A BIT "OVERDRESSED" FOR MY PERSONAL TASTE, BUT EACH TO HIS OWN I S'POSE.?.......DYNAS ARE A GOOD BUY THOUGH IF YOU'RE CONSIDERING A USED HARLEY'.......'SPECIALY IF YA LIKE "TRADITIONAL" HARLEY STYLING.?.....I'M TALKING ABOUT THE SPEEDO' BEING ON THE FAT-BOB-STYLE TANK,......THE TWIN FUEL CAPS, (THOUGH ONE IS A FUEL GAUGE ON MY WIDE GLIDE) AND THE BACK END HAS VISIBLE "NORMAL" SHOCKERS, ATTACHED TO A CONVENTIONAL TYPE SWINGING ARM SET-UP ETC;....THE 5-SPEED BOX ON MY '99 WIDE-GLIDE MODEL IS PRETTY WELL GEARED IN MY OPINION, AND ALL GEARS DELIVER GOOD PULLIN' POWER FROM THE MEGA-RELIABLE  V-TWIN......THE GEARBOX CAN SOUND A BIT INDUSTRIAL SOMETIMES WHEN SELECTING 1st GEAR WHEN THE BIKES COLD, BUT IT'S NOT A REAL WORRY.....ALL IT NEEDS IS FOR THE RIDER TO HOLD THE CLUTCH IN FOR ABOUT 30 SECONDS BEFORE SELECTING GEAR, GIVE THE CLUTCH PLATES A CHANCE TO PART, AND IT SLIPS IN WITH LITTLE MORE THAN A CLICK..........THE HANDLING ON MY WIDE GLIDE IS EXCELENT AS WELL. (ONCE I FOUND THE RIGHT TYRES TO SUIT.?) I USE AVON VENOMS, AND IT FEELS LIKE ITS ON RAILS THROUGH FAST CORNERS!  (RECOMMEND THEM TO ANYONE) ALL IN ALL, A GOOD LOW-MAINTENANCE, VERY RELIABLE BIKE.......ONE BAD POINT I HAVE TO TELL ANYONE WHO BUYS ONE, OR ANYONE WHO OWNS ONE NOW,..IS,...KEEP A CHECK ON THE GAP BETWEEN THE BOTTOM OF YOUR BATTERY TRAY, AND THE LIVE FEED TO YOUR STARTER MOTOR..........THE BATTERY CARRYING TRAY RESTS ON A NYLON BUSH AT THE INSIDE FRONT OF THE BATTERY BOX......(GO UNDER THE SEAT TO SEE IT)....THAT NYLON BUSH WEARS DOWN (PRESUMABLY WITH VIBRATION.?) ALLOWING THE TRAY TO SAG AND WEAR A HOLE THROUGH THE RUBBER PROTECTOR ON THE STARTER LIVE CABLE......ONCE ITS WORN A HOLE THROUGH THE RUBBER,.THE RUBBER PROTECTOR CATCHES FIRE.! .....AND ITS HARD TO PUT OUT THE FLAMES, BECAUSE ITS IN A VERY AWKWARD PLACE.!...
