INSTALLATION
NOTE
Use plastic protectors on tire mounting tools and rim clamps when mounting a tire to a painted wheel.
When mounting tires, liberally use tire lube on the wheel and tire.
For tire removal, use plastic inserts between the rim and tire after breaking the bead to create a large enough gap for the rim clamps to get into.
1.
Remove existing front wheel assembly. Save axle, axle nut, brake disc and wheel spacers for kit installation. See the service manual.
NOTE
Install short valve stem (43157-83A) included in the installation kit. Discard all other valve stems.
2.
See Figure 1. Install valve stem assembly (L) on wheel. See the service manual.
NOTE
Do not install the bearing shim included in the installation kit.
NOTICE
Do not re-use brake disc/rotor screws. Re-using these screws can result in torque loss and damage to brake components. (00319c)
3.
Assemble wheel installation kit components and brake disc(s) to wheel, using the appropriate service parts table. See the service manual.
4.
Install primary bearing with a Wheel Bearing Remover and Installer. See the service manual. The left side of the wheel has DOT cast in the wheel to indicate the primary side of the wheel.
NOTE
Only install the required (separately purchased) tire.
If the wheel has a yellow dot sticker on the rim, orient the tire so the white dot is opposite of the sticker. If the wheel has a green dot sticker on the rim, orient the tire so the white dot is aligned with the sticker. If no rim dot sticker is present, see the service manual.
5.
Install separately purchased tire (44026-09A or 55055-11). See the service manual.
6.
Install wheel spacers (previously removed).
NOTE
Install wheel so that the valve stem is on the right side.
7.
Install front wheel (1) and stock axle. See the service manual.
MAINTENANCE AND CLEANING
Chrome parts must be maintained regularly so they keep their original shine and luster.
  1. Clean heavily-soiled wheel surfaces using Harley-Davidson Wheel and Tire Cleaner, applied with Harley Wheel and Spoke Brush.
  2. Thoroughly clean chrome with a good quality chrome cleaner, such as Harley Bright Chrome Cleaner.
  3. After cleaning and polishing, seal the finish with a good quality sealer, such as Harley Glaze Polish and Sealant.
