The popularity of chassis stabilizers for
Harley-Davidson motorcycles with rubber mounted engines has
increased greatly and there are now numerous companies making them.
Most are much the same design and they work well.
There is one New and Different Style stabilizer out
as well and it is made by Alloy Art.
It uses three (3) heim joins as opposed to one (1) on
most of the other models.
It also uses a bushing intermediate member with an
adjustable arm so that ride performance can be adjusted, something
that is not offered on other stabilizers.
I recently installed a Baker Plus 1 oil tank on my
FLHT and it had a center mounting boss for a stabilizer.
The True-Track stabilizer I previously had been using
for the stock application would no longer work, without major
machine shop work. Baker suggested using this one.
I started by installing the two flange nuts into the
frame crossmember, put blue thread locker on the flathead allen
screws and installed the crossmember.
Installed the stabilizer to the crossmember using the
provided 3/8 bolts and adjusting so there will be no binding of the
I adjusted the front heim joint so that the bushing
tension arm was centered in the intermediate member.
That was it, installation was easy and quick and I
got to really try it out on my ride to Sturgis from Florida as well
as on the canyon roads in the hills when I arrived.
I am very happy with the way it worked and a bonus is
that it looks good as well.
Installation is quick and easy using basic hand
tools. For those using stock oil tanks they also make a model to fit
