Default Front Fender Mud Flap

Looking in the H-D Acc. Catalog.

They have Mud flaps for Most all models But Sportsters?

Has anyone installed one? Would a Flap from a Dyna work?

They have to keep all the crap away from the engine.

Like your idea of the front mud flap, I looked at the Dyna flap and I don't think there's much to be gained for the price, I think it sets up to high, along with the price tag. The install looks like drilling the fender is in order also.

Not only will it help keep the crud off the engine, but if it's at the right height, it really helps keep nails out of the rear tire.

My fender already has a hole drilled in it from the factory so I think it ws meant for a flap.

If you want the best in mud flaps, go to
Just installed one on my Dyna & you don't need the hole, although you should put abolt through for added security.
