    I need two 1"axle diameter front rim hub bearing with a outside dimension of 1.781 is this possible? I have a 08 FXSTBI and an aftermarket rim, my axle is a 1" the bearings in the front rim im trying to put on are 3/4 if I could get a bearing 1" axle and 1.781 outside diameter.This would solve my problem.I have tried the a 3/4 axle but some venders would not give me any decent dimensions.I have all the dimensions too.any Info would be greatly appreciated.thank you and Merry Christmas.

    ======================================================

    HI I have an aftermarket aluminum rim with 3/4 axle bearings. I have a 1"axle on my 2008 night train.The bearing holes are 1.781=45.237mm Does anyone make a bearing 25mmx45.237x12-15mm??????? so that I can install it on my night train. I have all the axle dimensions.nothing seems to posibly cross if I was to go to a 3/4 axle.Thanks for any help H.D talking

    Not that I can find. That is an odd OD size for a ball bearing. I bet that aftermarket rim accepts a taper roller wheel bearing and not a ball bearing. You can get a taper roller bearing in a 45.237 OD. but don't see any ball bearings in that size.

    (LM12749/LM12710 Taper Roller Wheel bearing 21.986x45.237x15.494. But as you can see your .7500" axle won't work)

    I would first check with the aftermarket rim company to see if the wheel hub was machined for a taper roller bearing. My guess is that it was. See if you can find it's intended make of bike. That would answer the entire puzzle.

    It's as if a few posts are missing. No clue as to outcome. What does where the bearing is made have anything to do with the original question.
