Couple of shots of an FXR2, FXR3 and FXR4 together .....

the FXR 2&3 were made in 1999 and the FXR4 in 2000.

Hey, what's with all these FXR come latelys.

The FXR2 and FXR3's were OK, but HD never did get that the FXR was more about performance than looks. The FXR4 finally caught on with the dual disks, bigger tires, etc.

Yeah, I have to agree about the FXR4, eggzlent braking system on the bike, smaller (19") front wheel instead of that 21 on the FXR2. Better handling ..... I would like more ground clearance

I've never scraped a peg, half because of a lack of talent as a rider, and half because the Sport has an extra inch of clearance over a standard FXR, and probably two over the lower models. You can actually see daylight between the top of the rear tire and the fender on mine, a mortal sin according to Willie G.

well I've scrapped pegs on both sides, have scrapped the muffler from the front cylinder, have dragged the mounting bracket for the exhaust ..... none of them were ever because I was trying to..... and I NEVER, EVER want to drag the exhaust bracket again EVER, that was SCARY !!! and at the very limits of my ability to stay up ..... I had to stand the bike up in the curve, crossed the line, then pulled it back down to finish out the curve ..... then I had to pull an 8ball and throw my undershorts away

I'd like to have another inch of clearance, that'd go a long way with me. I've considered putting longer shocks on it to raise it up a bit ...... time will tell, no plans at this time......

My rear shocks are roughly 14" unloaded, but you have to be careful. The sport model with the longer shocks and forks also has an extra degree of rake for stability and a longer jiffy stand for parking.

The extra degree of rake is counter-intuitive for handling, but it works really well in long sweeping turns which is where the bike is best.

If anyone ever has a set of those FXR4 triangular frame covers for sale, please let me know.

I have some pride.

When I bought mine I had to replace the air cleaner cover, derby cover and both mirrors for that exact same reason.

I've never liked the triangular covers, I've always preferred the inside the frame covers instead. I hear the triangular ones are hard to come by.

They're rare enough that Rick (I think), on 'Pawn Stars', would want three guest experts to check a pair before he bought them. ''You know, I've heard of these, but never actually seen a pair. The Old Man thinks I'm crazy, but. . . if they're real, I'm going for it. I just have to make sure I can make my million on them''.
