Rated 5 out of 5 by GerryO Excellent Addition to the Bike
We bought this for my son's 2016 Street Bob. He is 6'6" tall and the mid controls were not making for a comfortable ride.
With the help of the included instructions and the official service manual for the Dyna line, we installed these ourselves. The brake was easy and done in less than 30 minutes. The shifter is a little more involved for the proper install which requires removal of the primary chain cover and housing, along with the clutch assembly etc.
Overall my son is very happy and said the bike feels like a new ride with these on. Very comfortable for him and he is very happy with them.

The whole reason I spent the money on a Harley forward control kit for my Dyna is I knew it would fit, and this kit did not disappoint. All parts are steel and well made. The black finish looks great on the bike. You cant go wrong with this kit.

I rode with mid controls for a while. Installing these was a significant time and energy investment, but worth it. The parts are high quality and the instructions are really straightforward and clear. This kit has changed my whole world. it's a much more comfortable ride now. Glad I did it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JasonW No Need to Remove Primary
If you don't mind the spline shaft sticking out of your primary (it doesn't seem to move with the primary cover on), then there is no need to remove the primary. I wish I would have known this prior to doing my installation because I wasted a lot of time.
The installation is actually pretty easy. You can follow the instructions or look at the bigger picture towards the back of the instructions provided to get an idea of how everything fits together (which is what I ended up doing).
If you do want to remove the mid control spline shaft, then you're going to need to remove the outer primary cover and the inner primary housing in order to get that piece out, as it is welded together through the hole, and use the plugs provided in the kit.
An alternative (which I've seen/read about) was taking a hacksaw blade with a thin profile to reach under the frame into the small clearance you have to cut shaft from the lever (have to be delicate doing this to not damage anything else). For now, I've chosen to leave the spline shaft exposed. I may eventually go the hacksaw route, but I refuse to pay HD Service the 4-6 hours service time (which costs more than the kit) to do this.
