    Jay, More than once I got the wrong part/kit even though the package was labeled correctly. Just something to check without seeing first hand your problem.

    That's God's way of telling you that forward controls on a sportster are a crime against nature.

    Wonder if he ever figured it out. I just did my 04 Sporty and the kit bolted right up slick as snot.
