What is it that you want to do again, you want to put a 180-200mm tire on the rear of your Dyna? I don't think your stock struts, or your stock fender is going to be able to accommodate this change. You will most likely have to buy a wide tire conversion kit. check out:

Simple Google search came back with this (HD dyna wide tire kit)
http://www.tejasthumpcycles.com/Parts/Frames/wide_tire_kits/wide_tire_kits.htm

I do know that on the deuce some wheel manufactures make a 5.5 wide wheel that is a direct bolt and you can run a 180-200mm tire with only a fender change for some years. But a Dyna and a Deuce are not the same motorcycle, so that doesn't help much but check out the link. I hope that helps I am still new to all this so I could be wrong in ever thing I say.

Don't know if they can help you but you can try:

or
take your stock fender to a local metal shop and have them cut and add in the middle to make it as wide as you want.

Am I answering your questions or am I just way off. I am not sure I am following what you want to find out. If you want the stock looking fender and to run a larger tire then what I have posted so far should help but if not let me know I don't mind looking around to help.

2003 FXDWG, I have a Deuce rear rim (17" x 4.5") and a 170/60-17 Metzler 880 on it. It fits wth all the stock WG spacers (the Metzlers run a little narrow compared to Dunlop at least on the 160/70-17 comparison) it is 1/4" or so wider than the 160/70-17 Stock Dunlop Deuce tire and quite a bit wider thatn the 150/70-16 Dunlop that is stock on a WG. You need to grind the back of the rear caliper so it can pass by the Deuce rim for mounting, not a big deal.

As an aside a SE Deuce runs a 180 Dunlop. This tire will fit under a stock swingarmed and fendered Deuce with the stock rim. Just check the MSN Deuce owners group board for more info. Hope this helps......................Ward

I believe that you need wider than the 16" x 3.5" FXDWG rim to run a 170 which is why I went to the Deuce rim (actually I went to a Deuce rim because of broken spokes) I don't think anyone makes a 170 in 16". Avon does make a 160 in a 16" I think.................Ward

Bigblock i think you are right about the 170 on a 3.5 wide it would not be a good idea. The stock size on the 2006 deuce is 160 on a 4.5 so anything over 130 is risky according to tire manufactures. If you want to run a 160 or highter you should use a 5 or wider wheel from what they say. I think the 2006 Springer Softail has a 17x5 because it runs a 200mm out back stock. But again I am not sure I am just going by what tire manufactures websites say along with what the local HD dealer has told me vs. the 2006 HD catalog.

I ran across this today and thought this might be what you are looking for. It is for a 180/200mm and it is made to look like stock. Hope this helps even more.
