  • Direct fit roadstar wheel? 18 or 19 inch

    I’m located in Ontario Canada. Anyone know where I would look for 18 or 19 inch fat spoke 3.5 inch wide dual rotor chrome front spoke rim? If the spokes are sealed that’s a bonus. Looking for a direct replacement. Willing to slot my fender mounting holes if needed. Also what size tire would be correct? Factory tire size 130 90 16. Can you fit a 21 without extending the fender mounting tabs? I don’t wanna weld or paint to install this wheel! Thank you.

    I need a front tire anyway and fork seals are now leaking on the left tube. I am gonna replace the neck bearings while it’s apart anyway. May as well get the new rim now if I can find one

    You will most likely not find a direct bolt on in that size with fat spokes. Best bet if you want to go that route is to buy a fat spoke wheel for HD adapt it to fitRoadstar with spacers. HD wheel and HD rotors have been adapted on our bikes before. 19” fender will need to be raised from what I remember.

      I have plenty of fender clearance with my 19" HD cast rim. 21" is a problem, I think you can slot the holes but most I've seen get a bracket.

        19" wheel and under will fit under the stock fender as is. as far as direct bolt on there is one company that makes the fat spokes for the yamaha but they are horribly expensive. i can make you adapters so you can buy a much cheaper wheel made for a harley and be a bolt on item at that point. just slip the adapters in the harley bearings and install the wheel.

        i can even make the caliper spacers if need be. you would then only need longer bolts for the calipers

          I asked because google keeps bringing up American options that claim they are for roadstar. But I get screwed at the border with unexpected duty charges making it more expensive. I was hoping for a roadstar rim so I can still use my rotors that I just installed last year and not have to buy Harley rotors. I am aware of the Harley option and may go that route next winter if I must. I have been keeping an eye out for used but only enforcer wheels usually come up. I like the look of a nice spoked wheel. If I’m stuck I will replace my tire and put some effort into cleaning my current stock spoke rim before reinstalling. If you do know of any company’s that make roadstar specific wheels I would still like to check them out.. thanks

              Thanks. I think I have found a fat spoke 21, just have to wait for all this crap to end to go check it out. I cannot find 19x3.5 in Canada. I only want chrome spoke wheels.
