Default Installed footboards on my Super Glide

I put the FXDP footboards on my Super Glide today. Wasn't able to ride very far after I got 'em on but so far I LIKE! You can put your feet in either a mid position, or stretch 'em out to where they would nearly be if you had forward controls. Also, the mid foot pegs let quite a bit of vibration get through to your feet. That's totally eliminated with the footboards.

C'mon, dish! Did you have to do anything special to mount them?

I put floorboards on my sporty. Wrote a blog about it, showing the installation, if you are interested:

Well, unlike Cindy's install on the Sportster, the floorboards I put on my Super Glide are genuine Harley parts. They came std on the old FXDP Defender model, which was the Dyna police bike.

These boards will bolt right to the existing mid mount points and the forward mount points on the newer 06-09 Dyna models. The only thing that won't work is the forward shifter hardware that came on the FXDP. The mounting points for that don't exist on the newer frame and engine. That's why I just used an extended shifter mounted to the mid-mount shift spline.

Harley used to sell this whole set up as a kit, but they no longer do. But all the parts are still available. If you know the part numbers, you just order each individual part, which is what I did. Here is the list:

Items from Harley instruction sheet #J01921 (The number preceding the item is the item number from the assembly directions, NOT how many of that part you need.):

3 Socket head cap screw, self tapping (Quantity 8) 3214
(Only need 4 of these if you reuse the bolts from your existing mid mounts.)

18 Assembly, right front footboard 50521-01
19 Right rear footboard support 50526-01
20 Left front footboard support 50529-01
21 Left rear footboard support 50530-01
22 Assembly, footboard (Quantity 2) 50632-85
23 Shoulder bolt, 1/4-20 x 1 (Quantity 4) 50635-82A

29 Lockwasher, 3/8" (Quantity 8) 7045
(Only need 4 of these if you reuse the bolts from your existing mid mounts.)

31 Flange nut, 1/4-20 (Quantity 4) 7716

Updated items from the 2003 FXDP manual (needed because of updated brake pedal design--again, the number preceding the item is the item number from the manual, NOT how many of that part you need.):

1 Cotter pin 515

3 Screw, 3/8-16 X 1 Torx 4059
4 Washer, 1/4" 6099

6 Washer, 7/16" 6516HW
7 Washer, 3/8 X 13/16 X 1/16 (Quantity 2) 6701

9 Hex jam nut, 5/16-24 7744
10 LOCKNUT 7/16-14 X 21/64 X 5/8 hex 7827W

14 SHAFT, pivot 33689-02

16 Assembly, Brake pedal 33711-02
17 WASHER, spring wave 34641-01

26 Linkage, rear brake push rod 41954-01

29 Pad, brake pedal 42416-83

31 Clevis pin 42460-80B

Probably a silly question, but I'm too busy for any research this morning. Is that, by chance, the Mustang seat off of your Sporty? I'm assuming the Sporty seat would not fit the Dyna. Also, do the compact saddlebags from Don's fit on the Dyna Glide? I use those on my Sporty also.
Your new bike is sweet. I'll still haven't jumped, yet. Still struggling with what I want to do. If I keep what I have, are you going to sell your old windshield? Was it the detachable?

Thanks. This bike is a blast to ride and look at, and I don't regret for a minute trading the Sportster in on it.

Seat is new. Sporty seat won't fit on a Dyna.

Don's saddle bags don't work too well on the Dyna. That's why I've got 'em for sale in the Classified section.

Windshield is already sold.
