Default Will a Buell frontend fit on a Dyna

Yes it will. Will it work properly? No What do you think all of those parts are in the inside of the forks for? You will need to change the shims (valving) and spring to the proper weight you are adding to the forks (your bike and what you are doing with it) Is the wheel strong enough to withstand the additional weight the heavier bike with added luggage? You need to research the wheels designed load specifications. If you are riding the bike and the wheel fails, you will be the first to know you screwed up. This is what is inside of them. If you are asking others here what front end will work on your bike without knowing what all component designed weight limits are, you should not be involved in a major component change such as this. Here is what is inside of them (XB1200L):

Have you looked into similar styled inverted forks. They aren't much more $ than a used Buell front end and can give you the same kind of style. And if you shop smart you can get one that will allow you to reuse most of whats on the bike now like risers, bars, brakes, wheel and fender.

Just been looking at different options to get rid of my narrow glide front end. Been trying to find a factory 03 Wide Glide front end and having no luck. So started looking at the Buell front ends but your probably right to light for my bike. I do not want to get into revalving the forks. Just want to put a wider and more stable front end. Also want to reuse my wheel/fender and brakes.
