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.
Before removing or installing the wheel, the rear brake caliper must be removed. The cotter pin or spring clip for the axle nut must be replaced. They are available for separate purchase from a Harley-Davidson dealer. See dealer for the correct part number.
1.
Remove existing rear 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 (H) on wheel. See the service manual.
NOTICE
Do not re-use brake disc/rotor screws. Re-using these screws can result in torque loss and damage to brake components. (00319c)
NOTICE
Do not re-use sprocket mounting screws. Re-using sprocket mounting screws can result in torque loss and damage to the sprocket and/or belt assembly. (00480b)
3.
Assemble wheel installation kit components, stock brake disc and sprocket 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 machined groove(s) indicates the primary bearing side.
NOTE
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.
Mount new tire (purchased separately) to the wheel. See the service manual.
6.
Install rear wheel (1), stock axle, sprocket and stock spacers to motorcycle. 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.
