    When I replaced the rear tire on my 08 Ultra I torque'd it to 105, as I understand it the axle shaft diameter is the same on both our bikes, be sure to spin the tire to watch the alignment of the belt in the sprocket to be sure it rides the center and not rubbing the edge, than also the adjustment.

    I think those are 50, but you need to follow the procedure with the fronts. Check your HD Factory Service Manual for your model and year.
