Wheels mounting!!!

Will wheels off of a 02' Road king, the factory spokes. mount onto a 95' Road king?

Hopefully someone with more knowledge than me will chime in here.

If I'm not mistaken, the '02 has a larger axle than the '95.

Re: Wheels mounting!!!

2002 was the first year if the 1'' axle like troy said and harley's wheel installation kits only fit 00-01 plus 00 was was the year of the new rotors & brakes, that being said it might take more work to get it to fit then it's worth, maybe someone will post that has done it,

Re: Wheels mounting!!!

Raparicio,
I just retro fitted newer wheels to my 99 Road King which have the same wheels as your 95. 2000's still have a 3/4 bearing in the rear, but, 1 inch in the front. '01 and later go to 1 inch front and rear until the hit that 25mm thing in like '08. I got bearings to fit the new wheel to the old RK at motorcycle metal on the net. Look at their stuff and give Howard a call. He is quite the character but very informative and his prices are very reasonable.
If you need more info feel free to email me.

The 02 has 1" axles and the 95 has 3/4", but bearings can be changed to make it work.
