I have a 2004 FXSTSI, can I switch from a 16" rear wheel to an 18" without any mods? Will a lower profle rear tire make up for the 2" rim difference and if so what size tire do I need? I have not lowered the bike yet, but would like to drop it an inch or so. Will this affect the ability to change rear wheel size? I know...Alot of questions, but would appreciate a better understanding of this.

Thanks

18 x 4.25 rim and run a metzler ME 880 160/60/18..............you will only need to use readily available spacers,everything else is a straight bolt up.

Happy New Year...................Ozzie

Huh, guess I'm not the only one ol Wally did wrong to. I waited 3 months for a PM brake rotor. They gave me NO customer service. You know when the credit card company pulled the money away, I got my rotor in 3 days. Amazing!

I wanted to do the same 16" to 18" swap on a 2001 Road King. Does anyone know if this will work? I would like to run the stock profile tire. Thanks - JK

Yeah, Wally`s Wankers tell you that it will be alright, dont worry, they will take care of it and then NOTHING!, they wait for you to give up, probably run raffles to see how long it all takes for you to give up on them.

My stupid Citibank credit company in Bahrain told me I had to go to the vendor and ask them to give a credit back to the bank.................Citibank outside of the US sucks too!
