Harley-Davidson Rocker Conversion Kit.

For years Heartland USA had offered conversion kits for stock Harley-Davidson models which are true bolt-on systems where you have nothing to cut, drill or weld for installation. Only paint is required! The latest release is the “E-Z Rock-R Conversion”. Retaining the factory 240 mm rear tire setup, this new kit provides a new more appealing rear fender (3 different lengths available), billet aluminum struts, a steel rock guard and a leather solo seat, all conceived to work together to improve the lines of the Rocker.  You an also add a matching passenger seat in 2 options: the “Second Seat” or the “Ride, Rack & Rest”. Fits 2008 to present FXCW and FXCW-C and 2009 FXSTSSE . From Heartland USA at 310-822-2697 (free catalog when you call on my behalf).

    nice work by heartland, the kit makes the bike much better looking–but does anyone else see the irony in this kit? The rocker was styled to accentuate that seat–personal opinion withheld here–and now there is a way to repalce it?

    Its like buying a Duece and replacing the rear fender with a Heritage unit…..
    Just my opinion….

    Saw my first ‘Rocker’ at the motorcycle show last week. Pig ugly.

    Oooh neat! It makes it into a regular looking Softail! Guess you coulda saved some money and bought a standard ehh

  4. 4 Pitbull Dec 9th, 2008 at 12:32 pm

    That bike is soooooo gay!

  5. 5 loony Dec 9th, 2008 at 3:50 pm

    Harley does not make a Softail standard anymore, besides the softail Custom does not come with a 240 Tire ! This is still better looking then the basic softail.

  6. 6 bammo Dec 9th, 2008 at 4:29 pm

    i doubt the ride height of an actual bike would be as low as the pic above suggests. the fender isn’t on the swingarm.

  7. 7 Ryan Dec 9th, 2008 at 4:54 pm

    looks better to me than the regular rocker. this is what harley should have put on there dealers floors back in what? 2001-2002. maybe then they would have been on the curve and not three or four turns behind. thank goodness for all the great original builder’s like Cyril and his friends that bring us trend setting and life changing motorcycles. I still prefer this bike over the stock rocker-except for the tank, never a fan of the duece tank—maybe put one of Cyril stretch tanks and see what it looks like.

    To each thier own, but I never liked the Rocker. These mods help the look a lot, but it’s lines still don’t flow worth a crap. I’m glad Harley is trying some new ideas but I can’t believe they ever let the Rocker, or the Duece make it past the drawing board… give me a regular old Softail any day!

  9. 9 Charlie Dec 10th, 2008 at 10:11 am

    Leave it to the aftermarket once again! Well done!
    What the hell were (those guys) thinking?


  10. 10 Mike Tomas Kiwi Indian m/c Co Dec 10th, 2008 at 10:33 am

    Out of something not appealing to some/many it gives some companies the opportunity to turn it into something nicer. Lonnie at Heartland saw that opportunity and seized upon that opportunity, well done mate. And he’s not done with it yet. The rocker has yet to really ROCK!!!!

  11. 11 J Dec 10th, 2008 at 12:38 pm

    Big improvement- looks very sharp!

  12. 12 loony Dec 15th, 2008 at 12:07 pm

    The Bike above has been lowered. I know for a fact, it is on the floor at Los Angeles Harley-Davidson. Just like most Softails out there lowering the bike make it Look better and YES the fender is not on the swing arm,,, that you got Right.

  13. 13 Ghostrider Dec 15th, 2008 at 1:29 pm

    That helps the look of the “Rocker” 100%, I think the bike was a real ugly bike, and my first thought was to take off 50% of the stock parts and replace them!
    Good job Heartland! Too bad the Motor Company doesn’t have your insite!

    First of all this conversion is not possible unless they converted the rocker into a hardtail. The rear suspension requires at least 5″ of clearence between the fender and the seat. The addition of fender struts only confirms my belief that this is a BS conversion. Check out the clearence between the rear time and the fender. NOT GONNA HAPPEN. Sorry fellas but its just not doable. Anyway with that said, I love my rocker. Add a Corbin seat for comfort, pipes and a race tuner and you good to go.

  15. 15 Not a Rocker Owner Jan 16th, 2009 at 1:39 am

    That’s not a Rocker and that’s not a rocker seat. The fender is mounted to the frame. It’s not only possible, but nothing new. It is new for the Rocker and thank god someone made a kit to put that factory back end out of it’s misery. I would actually consider owning a Rocker now, but I wouldn’t even look at it until I got the heartland kit.

    Oh, and that bike needs to be up at least a couple inches to do any real riding. A heartland kit just bolted on straight up looks about 3 inches taller. Still worlds better.

  16. 16 Not a Rocker Owner Jan 16th, 2009 at 1:40 am

    meant, thats not a rocker –fender– or seat pictured. Which is why it’s doable.

  17. 17 Rail Feb 21st, 2009 at 12:12 pm

    There’s a lot of poor information on this blog..

    1st the Heartland rear fender mounts to the struts.. This still allows the swingarm to do it’s job.. The bike DOES NOT become a hardtail.. If you don’t lower the suspension the rear fender is about 4″ off the tire.. This gives the bike an “enduro” look as is just ugly.. With the Heartland kit comes a new bump stop that is short and allows more travel of the swingarm..

    2nd.. If you think Corbin’s answer to an aftermarket seat is a good option then you’ve lost your mind.. That seat is plain butt ugly and the ride is crap.. I know, I rode one.. The best option for an aftermarket seat at this time is the Danny Gray..

    I own a Rocker and I have the Heartland kit installed on it.. I rode the bike for about 6 months before I did the conversion.. In that time I never had or even heard one person say the stock Rocker was ugly.. Once you see it in person it does have nice lines and it flows..

    Hey Rail,

    Check out this:


    its a pretty good alternative.

    if anyone else has any thing for the rocker please share.

  19. 19 Cristiano May 6th, 2009 at 7:13 pm

    I’d imagine those who find it ugly are the one still picking their pockets to try and afford one. Jealousy is an ugly thing buddy! But to your point, I guess the reason why EVERYONE who stares at my 08 Rocker C loaded with its custom crimson red paint, a V&H dual shots set of pipes, screaming eagle heavy breather air cleaner, and some bad ass Kuryakyn chrome everywhere, spend so much time staring at it and telling me it looks really awesome because they too find it ugly, right bud?

  20. 20 DontCareWhoYouThinkYouAre May 7th, 2009 at 10:05 pm

    Cristiano–what exactly are you getting so offended about? So someone doesn’t like your style of bike, who gives a damn. Did you buy it because you like it or because you just wanted to get noticed. Go ride and quit b1tching about people who don’t share your taste.

    Then again–based on your comments it’s pretty obvious, you pretty much let the cat out of the bag on how you roll. Pot shot saying people can’t afford your bike and your straight-out-of-the-dealers-mouth description…stinks like wannabe RUB to me.

  21. 21 Cliff Jun 6th, 2009 at 7:44 pm

    Bought a 2009 Rocker C and I and everyone that has seen it loves it…. The seat though IS uncomfortable on long rides but HD and all other comanies always put an uncomfortable market seat on and I have had to upgrade on every bike I have owned…
    Need one for this one but in all honesty the seat didnt bother me until after about 4 hours

  22. 22 Franklin Jul 2nd, 2009 at 11:49 am

    Picked up my Rocker C about 2 months ago and I love it. Pictures don’t do it justice. Up close observers are always attracted to the lines as I was when I first saw it. I agree that the seat needs to be modified as I feel there is a bit too much daylight between the fender and the back of the stock seat. I also find the seat uncomfortable. I am considering the DG upgrade. Before I do, I was advised to hold off until the 2010 model and accessories release as Harley may have an alternative seat in the works. Other than that, I really like everything else about the bike.

  23. 23 Ugly Harley Jul 20th, 2009 at 2:04 pm

    The rocker or what ever they call it is the ugliest HD that the Moco has ever produced…you have to put aftermarket stuff on it to make it look decent. I have seen it up close and your friends are just being nice cause you spent thousands of dollars on something that looks like crap. they are staring at it because it is UGLY!!! not because it is “Full of Chrome”! what a dumbass! I own 5 Harleys and can afford 5 more…but would rather crap in a box and ride it then own a rocker. Would suck to be a rocker owner or a RUB like christiano.

  24. 24 dean o"'brien Jul 23rd, 2009 at 10:44 pm

    i thought opinionated jerks like this only appeared on their own talk radio shows.

    where’s the love, hd family.

  25. 25 SyckDog Aug 1st, 2009 at 9:27 pm

    He Opinions are like assholes everyone’s got one. I like the Rocker yep the seats are ugly but there hope for them with builders out there working on making them better riding and better looking.

    Dont worry about what peopel think its all about what you think!

  26. 26 ROBERT Sep 10th, 2009 at 7:20 pm

    I am not worried about what people think about the Rocker C. I bought a 09 this past November, just after I retired from the army. I done 23 years in combat arms and the Rocker C is the best weapon I have ever found to combat old age. It gets me out of the house and turns heads all at the same time. I thought about getting the Road King, but I am not so old that I can not ride the Rocker and do some hard rides. There are some people out there who dont like the Rocker and those people have that right to feel that way. They many say it is ugley and talk crap about me and the bike I ride, but no matter what they say. It will not hurt me, because I carry the scars from war. The same war that I fought to insure that jerks freedom to say crap about the Rocker and the people who ride one. I just think it is UNAMERICAN to talk crap about any american made bike. A real American would just say what they like about their bike and what they think could be done to improve it.

  27. 27 Scott Pridmore Oct 9th, 2009 at 12:48 pm

    O.K. This is my story….. I bought the first year Rocker. The Rocker C was not available so I bought the Rocker in Pacific pearl blue and everything alse was that battleship grey. I changed it all to chrome. 8 inch risers on drags,bigger chrome bucket, 2 into 1 Vance and Hines wide diamiter pipes, chromed the inner and outer primary,mirrors,bullet signals,tank guages in chrome,250mm rear Avon tire,polished the rims ….. bla bla bla, This bike turns heads and draws a crowd everywhere I go !!!! Whats next for my Rocker ?? This winter its getting the HEARTLAND KIT with the short fender and the same Harley paint coulor with electric blue ghost Flames !!! What dont I like about my bike ? The batlleship grey oil bucket and the gap between the fender and the seat. This winters makeover will fix that !!!! Squeeze a 250mm on your Rocker !

  28. 28 ME Oct 9th, 2009 at 2:43 pm

    I love the Rocker. It makes other harleys look plain. The Rocker has the most rake,the lowest frame,the lowest seat and the FATEST REAR tire. Thats TASTE !! good work HD !!!!

  29. 29 Black out Oct 15th, 2009 at 10:52 pm

    Love my ’09 Rocker. No chrome on this baby. Flat black finish, V&H black shroties, with custom blacked wheels. Have owned several HD’s and with this one, have never felt beter about the purchase. HD is all about attitude and this bike is full of it. Yes, the seat screams… change me… but who rides a “stock” bike. Great Job HD.

  30. 30 rich r Nov 24th, 2009 at 6:00 pm

    bought a rocker c and love it, you die hards need to accept the new design and relize that not everyone likes the same old rear fender that seems to be on every other harly. maybe you should just be happy they bought a harly and nat some imitation import!

  31. 31 Harlees4ever Dec 16th, 2009 at 1:24 am

    Wow, can hardly believe what I am reading…. I am a 68 year old and probably have more time backing a Harley into a parking spot than most have flat out on the road. I own a bone stock 09 Rocker C, which is the 24th Harley I have owned since age 14. Last summer while riding an 08 Street Glide from Va. to Dallas, Texas I decided the bike was just too boring and traded it for the Rocker on my return. The Rocker puts fun back into riding. The seat is not as comfortable as most but there is no problemn making long trips on it. Bikers have been dealing with the rice riders and their BS for years and later the RUBS and now I have to hear people bitchin about a Harley someone else rides. When you fork up the money to buy a man his ride then u have the right to tell him what you think about his chioice. If you ride a Harley I have probably owned one like it.. Take it from an old timer, the Rocker is a damn nice bike and handles (if that is important to any of you) as well as any production bike Harley has ever made.
    Ride Safe

  33. 33 fred Feb 14th, 2010 at 7:45 pm

    i personally think the rockers factory styling is not only ugly but f;;;;; ugly, i ride a screamin eagle deuce luv it but cant dig on the seat/ fender setup on the rocker…. definitely not jealous

  34. 34 Black out Mar 7th, 2010 at 3:08 pm

    When did the Deuce ever spawn such debate? Plain Jane styling with no real bite. When was the last time a Deuce spun any heads from anyone other than Honda owners? Sit back and enjoy the road a bit my Willie Nelson loving friend, but you should change the station every now and then. The world is a big place!

  35. 35 Loki Mar 12th, 2010 at 9:58 am

    i love the ride of my Rocker but not the passanger seat it to high and throughs the balance and ride off when you have a passanger. Passangers are a little uncomfortable bc of the height. and it looks strange. but w all the custonm parts like the HL kits the bike can look bad ass.

  36. 36 scott Apr 12th, 2010 at 12:52 pm

    what is the true price of the heartland kit before paint? in the raw installed?

  37. 37 XTanker Apr 13th, 2010 at 5:14 am

    Alot of opinions on this site for both sides of the Rocker debate. I purchased a 2009 Rocker C and ordered the Heartland Rocker conversion with rear seat. I agree with with all the naysayers that the back profile is…hideous and the factory seat is damn uncomfortable to bear for any longer than 3 hours straight. HD started with a good idea on ‘Monday’ and decided to take ‘Friday’ off. I found the Heartland kit combined with a Wild One lowering kit (1.75″ drop) has finished where HD left off. We all agree that a softail (actually any HD) with a wide rear turns heads. The cost to upgrade a softail to where the Rocker starts is not economically feasible for the average rider. By the time you purchase a wide conversion then a wheel & tire combo, seat, paint, labor, etc….you are well over the price of either a new stock Rocker and the Heartland conversion which fixes up the backside. This allows the ‘average Joe’ to own that pro-style bike he has always dreamed of.
    Baggers with 26ers, bobbers with matt paint and apes, retro style big twins…we all have a style we like and that is why we have invested time and money into our prides. You may not like the other guys ride but respect what he has done to make it his much like you have done with yours. I love to hear people ask “…is that a Rocker?” “Why didn’t HD do that(Heartland kit) in the first place?”
    Enjoy the ride! (whatever it is)

    PS: Scott, the true price for the Heartland kit came to $3995 Canadian for me and that included the rear passenger seat. I did all my own work and materials (paint,supplies,etc.) came to an additional $180 (Can.$)

  38. 38 Preacher Nov 13th, 2010 at 3:19 am

    To each his own. Spend your money as you please. I’ve had enough HD’s to make your head spin. I purchased an 08 fxcw Rocker (no chrome, just didn’t want it) It really stands out. It’s a great canvas for customizing. Harley has a wide variety of bikes to fit individual taste. Spend more time riding, than complaining about someone elses bike. It’s about freedom

  39. 39 ROBERT Nov 18th, 2010 at 11:55 pm

    The last time I was on here was Sep 10th 2009. I still have my Rocker C and love it. Every time I think I am finished with custom add on parts, I find myself wanting to do more to it. This bike is the perfect toy for someone who enjoys adding the personal touch to their bike. This site has some good info about easy ways to customize your bike, but if you have any new info on companies who offer custom parts for the Rocker please let us know. Remember it is all about improveing your ride so you can feel that freedom we all enjoy.

  40. 40 Wolfen Jan 11th, 2011 at 9:59 pm


    It really does amaze me as to what dumb ass people will say about something they know crap about!!!!
    I have a 2008 FXCWC Rocker and I REALLY do turn heads everywhere I go. It has a 103 in it now, and a Heartland rear end. Also way too many things to list in a short email, but to anyone that has a Rocker stick it out. My bodies have Dynas, Night Trains and V-Rods still can’t run me. They are killer bikes. Is it a pan head NO is it a shovel head NO, but if you are in Edmonton Canada and want to drag your bike. Check me out!

  41. 41 C00LHandLuke Mar 8th, 2011 at 2:11 pm


    No offense, but using the phrase “sooooo gay” on the subject of Harley Davidson is much more “feminine” than any motorcycle Harley can manufacture.

    Just my dos centavos.

  42. 42 Cheap Office 2007 Activation Nov 29th, 2011 at 9:13 am

    Pretty section of content. I just stumbled upon your site and in accession capital to claim that I acquire actually loved account your weblog posts. Any way I will be subscribing in your augment or even I success you access persistently fast.

  43. 43 Rocker Owner Jan 30th, 2012 at 3:08 pm

    Looks like it has all been sorted out here. I would just add that my bike gets more positive attention than the HD’s my boys ride. To the point I start to feel bad for them. I have not done the conversion yet but I will next month. I will do it because I have long ass legs and could use the extra space.

    We all ride what we ride because of an attraction to the machine… you don’t have tom like the Rocker, I don’t have to like your ride it come down to personal preference.
