  • Spoke wheel to mag wheel swap.

    I know this was touched on once before on the old forum. What is needed to swap a factory rear spoke wheel with a mag wheel?

    If memory serves, I believe that that it is almost a direct swap. You will have to use the original spacers and your drive pulley assembly.

      Awesome, thanks tdor54.

        Yup, use the cast wheel spacers with the cast wheels & they bolt right in.

          What about the hub, is it the same? Will my old hub still work?

            Depends on the year of your bike. A '99 - '03 hub won't work without changing the inner bearing to one without the extended inner race. All I had to swap out was the pulley because of my wider belt.

              I know this is a very old thread now but what HD rear spoke wheels will fit in a 99 model?

                None without a lot of work. I don’t recall anyone doing it.

                  I think Smokescreens did one with a HD rear but it wasn't easy

                    I ran an 5.5x18" rear spoke HD wheel with a 200/55R18. If you go that wide you'll need to widen the fender and grind the brake stay. Used a 1"dia x 13.5" long (if my memory serves me right) axle with assorted spacers to get the correct alignment. HD rotor with the stock brake caliper.
                    I also ran a 65 tooth rear drive pulley. It was definitely a highway cruiser with that setup.

                      I don't particularly want to go down this route but I just can't find a 56 spoke five and half inch rim in the UK.
