I just bought some stock spoke wheels off of a 2002 superglide to put on my 2001. My bike hase a 140 rear tire and the 2002 has a 150. Will the 150 fit on my 2001?
Thanks for the help.

I think that you should have enough clearance for the 150 tire. The belt is not the limiting factor on 2000 up. You may want to make sure that the inside fender bolts and nuts will not interfere though. My 2000 FXDS had fender strut nuts that are only half as wide as a standard nut. A 150 tire fit without any modifications.

anks for the info Fifthgear.
I installed the new tire and wheel and it worked fine. It does get close to the fender bolts but it will work.:)
