« on: April 15, 2018, 10:24:58 PM »
Does anyone know where I could get a set of replacement molded oil hoses for a '96 FatBoy?

If you had the part # you could search on Ebay or Toms NOS parts.

Others have suggested to get a piece of rubber oil line and use an external spring to keep it round (no kinks) as you twist it to that required routing. PITA for sure. Maybe I got lucky but it seemed like it was no issue to order from my dealer. I could try if you like....? Send it to ya and all that stuff. Send me a PM if you like. Happy to help.

Thanks for the offer Flhfxd, will try a different dealer and look for someone with stock. If no luck I will take you up on that offer.

It's a lot easier to Google the part #.

I don't have a softie parts book or I'd offer it up.

FTBY55,

I am looking for replacements for my 1998 Superglide. What did you come up with? I have been searching for factory replacements and haven't found any either. I am thinking of going with something like this....  http://www.dragspecialties.com/products/?productId=468806&partNumber=07110042  I would rather have black but I guess we have to go with what is available.

fyi
i have a 94 dyna conv and started replacing hoses and rubber a couple of years ago before parts started getting scarce.
had a problem last year trying to replace the brake lines
if you plan on keeping your bike replace anything of age and possibly start collecting parts, the after market just goes so far.
you can google the part numbers maybe someone has stock, you can also ask a harley dealer to check other dealers through  the country
good luck
