    Bought a set of wheels off a 11 EG w/abs for my 09 EG non abs, just to keep down time to a minimum for tire changes and such. I'm replacing the bearings on the abs wheels to non abs, in the manual it looks like I need a spacer washer on the abs bearing side.... Am I correct ? also is this both frt and rear? In the 09 HD manual pg.2-15 fig 2-5 it's not showing the spacer washer on the rear... than on pg. 2-33 fig 2-4 it does. Don't really want to pull my OE wheels apart yet to check.

    See IF this helps you out....

    wheel bearings on FLHX - Page 2 - Harley Davidson Community

    The information is accurate here.

    Finding more by asking in Old Post or self help.

    Looks like to me, just the right bearing in the wheels (non ABS) and NO spacer will work for Non ABS

    Thanks Bubbie, just got the OE wheels off and measured the inner spacer sleeves and there the same as the abs sleeves.

    I did the same thing with my '10 FLHTCU except my bike had abs and I bought non abs wheels for $50. If you buy wheel installation kits from harley, all the proper spacers are in the kit. I remember when I did this the inner spacer needed to be changed on the back wheel.
