Changing to 21" front wheel

Discussion in 'Touring Models' started by Steve Deatherage, Apr 18, 2009.

    I ordered my 21" front wheel for my street glide. Is there anything special I need to know to swap it out with my stock wheel. I ordered it with the hub,bearings,rotors,tire already installed. I cant imagine any problems but thought I would ask.
    My bike is a 2007 street glide and does not have ABS. To install the calipers on the new rotors I am sure I will need to spread the pads out because the new rotors will be thicker since they are new. Other than that I don't foresee any other problems.
    I was also told to drill the front fender mounting holes a little to make room to move the fender for better clearance. If you think of anything let me know. I will post pics when I'm done.

    I went with the Renegade Tahoe 21" chrome wheel

    I put a 21" on my 2003 Road King, love it also. I went with a klock werks fender so can't help you on that. I did the work myself, it was a easy swap. You will like the new front look, and get compliments I'm sure. Post some pics when you get it done....
