The change was '08 I believe. The same year they went to a 6" rear wheel from the 3 1/2". I believe the frame downtubes may be a larger diameter.
If so the Motorvation mounts shown may be affected with the changes. Larger diameter U-clamps are available if this is the case.
The FS 3 may have 5/8" heim joints to clevis for the lower mounts. If so, you can still go heim joint to eye for the lower connections as many mfg'rs of the heavier cars (like Hannigan) use eye to eye connections. I don't know if Motorvation has a clevis style U-clamp available for use with their sub-frames.

Did you buy it? Rick G. just bought an '05 FLH and is going to mount his current Harley sidecar to it. This might be of use to him if it's still available. I sent him the link to this thread. One of these days when you're over this way, we'll go up on Rick's mountain so you can meet...
