It will, but here is another tip...Progressive 440HD shocks. I put a set on 3 years ago and cussed myself silly that I did not do this the day I bought the Ultra. The ride is THAT good. All the harshness is gone, and in the Detroit Metro area where we almost don't have roads anymore, this upgrade was substantial enough to get me to keep the bike! It was destined for the auction block...
