Can you put the next size wider tire on a 2003 Road King without having to take off the inside drive belt guard.Will there be enough clearance?

YOU CAN GO TO A 140 TIRE WITHOUT ANY CHANGES. ANYTHING WIDER AND YOU HAVE TO DO A PULLEY/BELT EXCHANGE.

You have to be careful depending on what brand of tire you are talking about. There is considerable difference in width on 140 tires between manufacturers. I do know a Dunlop K491 140 will fit fine on 01 and earlier but I believe in 02 the rear axle size was changed which might have changed other things and could make a difference. Best way would be to get down and measure amount of clearance you have on both sides, then check out the manufacturers tire widths on the web.
