Does this look right?

Wife bought me a pretty part for our 2010 ’Glide. Installation was simple - too easy, really - so Im looking for reassurance:
Harley’s bar and shield linkage will end up somewhat at an angle once installed, right? And that angle won’t screw anything up over time?

The linkage should be vertical with both Heim joints not stressed to one side or the other. A Heim joint is the bearing type joints at the end of the linkage.

Make sure it wiggles(rotates) on the heim joints and you are good.

i just went through this myself. i replaced the stock linkage with the linkage off my old cvo. without using spacers, there is no way to make the linkage perfectly parallel. i rode for about 50 miles yesterday, and shifting was great, there was no binding, and i had no issues.

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.

It rotates freely (tilts forward/back) on the joints. Thanks, sir.
