    One time was working on a custom bike and the rear axle just keep tightening & tightening & tightening, it was a aftermarket chrome axle and the axle pulled out of the welded nut end on the one side, it was kinda like when one of my techs asked me how many quarts of oil these new police bikes take, said he put six in and still not full, I looked on the other side of his lift and oil was flowing out of the drain pan all over the floor, I just told him to put the drain plug in and walked away shacking my head, this was a PHD dealership tech, funny stuff does happens :)

    This is odd. I have a 2007 FLSTF. I purchased it brand new with the factory solid disc wheels with 50cal holes. It has a 3/4" axle in it. I thought the 2000 up bikes all had 1" axles.
