  • adapters to mount aftermarket harley front wheel on 2000 roadstar?

    Hi, I was looking to mount a front Harley wheel to my roadstar. Do I use a different axle and what about the rotor,will it line up with my caliper? (I'm assuming I will need Harley rotor, I will only use left caliper only)
    What all comes in the adapter set I see people talking about on this forum? and who sells it?

      i can make the adapters you need. i only need to know if the wheel has 25mm or 1" bearings. i turn them from 304 stainless steel.

      for rotors you want a 11.8" harley rotor and you will need to space the caliper as needed. probably about 1/4"

        ok, thanks I will let you know soon. I do know the rotor is 11.5"... will that be an issue?

      the rotor might not make it past the brake pads in the caliper. i would highly recommend you get a 11.8" rotor.

        I just found out I have the option to choose bearing size, I assume 25mm or 1". Which should I choose?

          go 1" if you have the choice

            not sure off the top of my head on the sizes, but there are 2 different width rims 2.5 and 3.5 I think. don't get the skinnier 2.5 as some people have the flop affect when using them on the roadie. I'm assuming that you are wanting a 21" wheel? I did one on my old bobber a couple years ago (go the axle spacers from smokes) I think I had to make .375 spacers to match the calipers to the rotors (I used a dual rotor wheel)
            I don't have all my facts in front of me, hopefully someone will chime in and correct whatever I left out or said wrong.
            here is a in process pic of mine when I was making it.

            owning a motorcycle is not a matter of life or death, it is much more important than that
