Well I got my parts yesterday. My problem is my shop is still a war zone after moving in a year ago and I still haven't built myself a jack. The good news is the $1.15 bearings listed above are perfect. The clevis pin was just a touch long. If I really want to get carried away one day I can get a longer clevis pin and make it perfect. I had to file around the cotter pin hole for the bearing to slide on the pin. Other than that the Bowie cotter pin slipped right on and will be easy to remove next service. I had to balance the bike on blocks of wood and work fairly quickly. I always get a little nervous about the earth moving around if I don't have a proper support.

Much thanks for the heads up Dave!

I had a problem with my jiffy stand; when I would go to lower it, it would go down about 1/2 way and 'hang', like there was a huge jassed nickel blocking it or something, after a few attempts at raising it and lowering it, it would go down and putting it back up was like normal. I grabbed my foam kneepad and got down to look if anything was causing the hang up but couldn't see anything ( I did notice the pin installed through the bottom and the cotter pin on top, and wondered why it couldn't be reversed as said in an above comment but noticed that the 'mount for the jiffy stand itself is welded close to the frame and I doubt the pin could be inserted through the top with the cotter pin easier to install),
anyway, I rode this bike a few years before I bought it in the S.F. Bay Area, made a few trips to Laughlin Nv, and gassing up I know I annoyed other riders from me trying to lower the sticky stand (LoL). I mentioned this to the PO then and he was going to have the dealer look into it but never did (incidentally, the PO rarely did anything to his own bikes, he took them into the dealer why, because he could afford to!! To get back to my jiffy stand, about 8 months ago I went to the H~D dealer here in Portland and bought the set of bushings as I figured that was what the problem was, when I got home and attempted to lower the stand, it went down like it should, no hanging up, been that way since, for eight months now, so I just grease the bushings every now and then and keep the new bushes in the tool bag I carry.

IronDan-O, I'm not sure about the fit on other years. You should be able to get a ballpark measurement of yours with a tape measure. That's all I had at the time and it worked. The clevis pin will not work as it is too long. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1372218633.782753.jpg

Depending on what the dealer wants for the pin, that might be the way to go if you need one. Mine was ok so I used it because the HD size looks to be around 2-5/8". I didn't measure it. If I were to buy one from McMaster, I'd get a 3" part, drill it, deburr, cut to size and round the end a little. That a lot of work for a little part, but something I tend to do. Your clevis pin is probably just fine if it hasn't fallen out.

At this point I would say all my part numbers are junk. My original replacement bushings were gone in less than 1000 miles. I replaced them again on Friday while buttoning up a new stator. I don't have 100 miles on it I suffered BlackBikeDave's fate this morning. Harley should have everything by Wednesday. I got an aftermarket stand; they wanted $180 for a factory stand.

The only thing I can think of is the bowtie cotter pin is cutting through the bushing. That doesn't explain the lower bushing disappearing. It's really hard to do any kind of forensic analysis when you have nothing to analyze.

I'm not a very happy camper today. It doesn't sit well with me when I try do this stuff proactively and I still get bit in the a$$. I had to charge the dead batteries in my diesel f250 at home and at work last week to get this bike together. Those batteries are only two years old... and the poke is officially empty!

What i find amazing is that my 1997 didn't have any bushings and the jiffy stand is still intact and in great shape.. i checked it after seeing this thread, and almost ordered parts, until I confirmed with my parts catalog. my year doesn't need them...

maybe going with an earlier version can eliminate this headache

Well after spending $180 on just the stand because I needed it yesterday, I found bits of my bushing in the garage. It was a brittle failure. When I get the chance and some cash I'll order some different materials from McMaster and do some testing to make sure they work. The new HD parts looked like brass, not bronze.
