1. DISCONNECT AND REMOVE THE BATTERY 2. DRAIN FLUIDS: The transmission and primary drive oils need to be completely drained. Refer to the H-D® Factory Service Manual. 3. ELEVATE THE REAR WHEEL off the ground by positioning the bike on a suitable jack or bike lift. The motorcycle will remain in this position until the transformation from Page 9 to Page 20 is complete. So make sure it is safe, stable and there is 5-feet- or-so of peripheral room to move about. 4. DISASSEMBLE: Remove the transmission, seat, primary drive housing, clutch components, rear tire, swing arm, swing arm jounce bumper, exhaust pipes, and fender. Refer to the factory service manual. Also, remove the rear brake caliper and brake line all the way up to the rear master cylinder. The primary drive components will be reinstalled as a part of the BAKER 300™ transformation. All the other components can be set aside and sold on Ebay® or your local swap meet. FIGURE 1 NOTE: Starter and transmission can be removed without removing oil tank via the left side of the motorcycle. 5. CUTTING FENDER SUPPORTS: The fender struts must be removed in order for the new BAKER 300TM fender to fit. Bolt into place the fender support cutting templates (marked L for left and R for right and provided in the kit) to the sides of the frame by using the bolts from the support covers. L and R must face out for correct template orientation FIGURE 2 . Use a reciprocating saw (aka sawzall) or abrasive cutoff wheel to remove the supports as shown in FIGURE 2 . With a large flat file, break (smooth off) all sharp corners and edges. The resultant bare metal will not be visible once the BAKER 300™ fender is installed. CHECK NEWLY CUT FRAME FOR FENDER FITMENT AT THIS POINT BEFORE PROCEEDING. Additional material may need to be removed for proper fitment. 6. As an anti-corrosion measure, paint the exposed bare metal with primer and/or paint.
