Hi .... Tyres are one of those things that every rider you speak to will have a different favorite. Depending on your riding style try Avon Super Venoms, Avon RoadRider or a dual compound rear like a Bridgestone BT45 ............... Let us know how you get on.

you could use a blind hole bearing remover w/slide hammer these bearing are suppose to be tight and straight.if they are removed and installed wrong you could ruin the hub. Harley switched to sealed wheel bearings in 2000 earlier models were tappered bearings.

Raise the bike off the ground. Remove the axle nut and start to slide the axle out. Depending on which way the axle was put back in the last time it was out, you my have to remove part of the exhaust system. If the axle is too difficult to get out, loosen the belt adjuster bolts on either side of the swingarm.
As you drive the axle out, mark and make a simple drawing of the spacers and where they go. Seems like the Softail bikes have a spacer in each wheel bearing seal and a solid spacer for a total of three. Make sure you mark them and make a drawing of where they go. Don't trust their position to memory. Once you have the axle out, you need to work the belt off the rear pulley. Do not twist the belt or bend in into a sharp radius as the internal cords of the belt will be damaged resulting in early failure of the belt. Raise the bike and tilt the wheel over until you can get it out. You may have to remove the upper & lower belt guards.

SOURCE: need to replace rear wheel
If you are willing to do it Charles Bronson style , all you need is a hammer and skinny flat blade chisel. Most bearings can be tapped out from the opposite side. Put the chisel through the center of the bearing hole, push the bearing spacer off to the side, hook the chisel onto the inner race of the bearing and tap it out the opposite side of the wheel. When the bearing and spacer fall out, flip the wheel over and tap the other bearing out the other side. Now , place the new bearing in the opening and place the old bearing against it lining up the raises. Only tap on the old bearing (the outer race) when pushing in the new bearing. Tap in the new bearing until the old bearing starts to enter the wheel hub. Now you have to carefully seat the bearing by using the chisel only on the outside race, moving the chisel around the circumference of the outer race to evenly push the bearing down. Be very careful not to slip and punch the seal or damage the actual ball bearings. Flip the wheel over , put the spacer back in, and repeat the procedure till the other bearing is seated enough that the spacer can be moved but does not bind the inner races of the bearings. Work carefully and you will have a permanent repair using only a hammer and a chisel.
