Hi ...... I dont have experience of this particular model but something is def'ly wrong with the set-up as you have it.Take it apart and apply the brake with the disc in the caliper (support wheel on blocks/bricks whatever) and the put spindle through the wheel. This will show you the wheel 'centred' and give an indication which spacers you have go where. Only other thing you might have done is placed the speedo drive into the wheel without engaging correctly. Disconect at the clock/speedo and whilst spinning the wheel look to see if the cable is turning OK.
Good Luck ........... any problems let us know.

What is the front wheel spacer placement on 2005 flht


Install or place the wheel into position between the forks with the valve stem on the right side of the vehicle. THEN coat the axle with bearing grease. THEN while supporting the wheel, insert the threaded end of the axle through the right fork leg and push it through the fork, the short external spacer and the wheel hub until it begins to emerge from the left side. THEN with the three notches on the bearing side, push the axle through the long external spacer and the left fork leg until the axle shoulder contacts the external spacer on the right fork side. THEN install the flat washer, lock washer and axle nut. THEN insert a screwdriver or a steel rod through the hole in the axle on the right side of the motorcycle AND THEN while holding axle stationary tighten the axle nut to 50-55 ft-lbs (68-75 Nm). THEN insert a 7/16 inch drill bit into the hole in the axle and pull the fork leg so that it just contacts the drill bit, and then tighten the axle holder nuts to 132-180 in-lbs or (14.9-20.3 Nm). THEN remove the drill bit from the axle hole. THEN install the brake caliper tightening the mounting bolts to 28-38 ft-lbs or (37.9-51.5 Nm). THEN BEFORE moving the motorcycle, pump the front brake hand lever until the caliper pistons push the pads against the brake discs because if the pads have not been hydraulically pushed out against the brake disk the brakes will not work when they are first attempted to be applied. SO, depress front brake hand lever several times to set the brake pads to the proper operating position within caliper before you attempt to move or ride the motorcycle.

How to change front wheel


Support the motorcycle with the front wheel off the ground.
Remove the caliper mounting bolts and remove the caliper
Place a plastic or wooden spacer between the brake pads in place of the disc. Then, if the brake lever is inadvertently applied, the pistons will not be forced out of the caliper.If the pistons are forced out, disassemble the caliper to reseat the pistons.
Insert a drift or screwdriver through the front axle hole on the right side to prevent it from rotating.
Loosen and remove only the left side axle nut.
On the right side, loosen the fork slider axle clamp nuts
Prior to removing the front axle, note the location of
the right side spacer and left side spacer. The spacers must
be reinstalled on the correct sides during installation.
Withdraw the front axle from the fork sliders and front wheel.

Remove rear wheel on 2012 flhtc harley


To remove a 2012 TOURING rear wheel FIRST remove the saddlebags, then raise the wheel with a suitable lifting device and rotate the wheel and inspect the wheel bearings. THEN remove left side muffler, on models equipped with low profile shock absorbers (FLHX, FLTRX), remove the left side lower saddlebag support rail and if ABS equipped remove the cable strap to releasethe rear wheel speed sensor cable from the rear brake hose and at no time ever left any magnetic force field exist or be close to the speed sensor or it will be ruined, remove the rear brake caliper but do not disconnect the brake hose, set the brake caliper on the passenger footboard or otherwise appropriately support it, remove the E-clip from the groove at the end of the axle, hold the weld nut on the left side of the axle and loosen the cone nut on the right side of the axle using an AXLE NUT TORQUE ADAPTER available from JIM's or H-D (HD- 47925), remove the cone nut and the adjuster cam from the axle, rotate the weld nut on the left side of the axlecounterclockwise until the wheel is loose, remove the axle from the left side of the motorcycle, catch all of the external spacer(s), caliper bracket, and rear wheel speed sensor (if ABS equipped) as the axle is removed, remove the caliper bracket from the anchor weldment on the rear fork, move wheel forward enough so that you can and slip the drive belt off of the compensator sprocket, if needed remove the brake disc from hub and be careful that the drive sprocket does not fall off and get damaged as you remove the wheel from the bike, mark the wheel and the disc for re-installation in the same orientation.

To install a 2012 TOURING rear wheel you will need FASTENER TORQUE VALUEs. The brake disc (rear) screws are 30-45 ft-lbs 41-61 Nm; (Do not re-use brake disc/rotor screws because re-using these can result in torque loss and always reinstall a brake disc in its original orientation); the rear axle cone nut (preliminary - 15-20 ft-lbs 20-27 Nm) (Final 95 to 105 ft lbs 128.8-142.4 Nm ) ; Brake caliper (rear)mounting fasteners 43-48 ft-lbs 58.3-65.1 Nm. If the brake disc was removed from the wheel ALWAYS reinstall it in the same orientation with the wheel as when it was removed and ALWAYS use NEW attaching screws and tighten them in a crosswise pattern to 30-45 ft-lbs (41-61 Nm), verify that the sprocket is square to and fully seated in the bowl area of the wheel, place the wheel into the rear fork with the drive sprocket installed, install the belt over the drive sprocket and then slide the wheel back to take up the slack, seat the brake caliper bracket on the anchor weldment of the rear fork, apply a light coat of wheel bearing type grease (H-D suggest silver anti-seize compound but this technician finds almost all seized, corroded axles were lubricated thus so do as you feel best) to the axle to the bearing bores and to the bore of the spacer sleeve, slide the axle through the left side of rear fork, the thin external spacer, the sprocket and into the wheel hub out the other side of the wheel hub and through the rear wheel speed sensor if ABS equipped and if ABS equipped ensure that the grooves on the external spacer, or index pin on the rear wheel speed sensor are on the outboard side or through the thick external spacer if not ABS equipped, the brake caliper bracket, and the right side of the rear fork, rotate the axle so that the flat on the threaded end is topside and with the adjuster cam section forward, install the adjuster cam on the right end of the axle, apply a light coat of SILVER GRADE ANTI-SEIZE (H-D Part No. 98960-97) to the inboard side of the cone nut but NOT the threads, install the cone nut on axle finger tight only, if ABS equipped route the speed sensor cable forward and outboard of the brake caliper bracket, continue forward following the top of the rear fork, rotate the speed sensor in a counterclockwise direction until the index pin makes contact with the brake caliper bracket, tighten the cone nut to a preliminary torque of 15-20 ft lbs (20-27 Nm), install the brake caliper and tighten its screws to 43-48 ft-lbs (58.3-65.1 Nm), secure the rear wheel speed sensor cable to the brake hose with the conduit clip located approximately 1.25 in. (31.8mm) in front of the brake hose crimp, adjust the drive belt using a belt tension gauge, final tighten the cone nut to 95 to 105 ft lbs 128.8-142.4 Nm, install a new E-clip with the flat side out in groove on the right side of the axle, on models equipped with low profile shock absorbers, install the left side lower saddlebag support rail, install the left side muffler and tighten its fasteners to 96-144 in-lbs 10.9-16.3 Nm,depress the rear brake pedal a number of times to set the brake pads properly against the brake disc, install the saddlebags and THEN road test the vehicle.

Change front brake pads, 2002 FXD


For 2002 DYNA to replace front brake pads FIRST remove the front master cylinder reservoir cap because as the pistons are pushed back into the caliper the fluid level may rise and you will need to see this and may have to remove some excess fluid, the3n loosen but do not remove both (12 pt/0.25 in.) pad pins, remove both 10 mm caliper mounting bolts, detach and remove the caliper from the front forks and brake disc, pry the pads back to force all four caliper pistons fully into their bores, with the pistons retracted, remove the pad pins and brake pads. The front left, front right (if present as not present on all motorcycles) and the rear brake calipers use the same exact brake pad set. On the right side of the vehicle, the pad with the two tabs installs on the inboard side of the caliper and on the left side the pad with the two tabs installs on the outboard side of the caliper. Install new brakepads into caliper with the curved portion of the pad facing the rear of the motorcycle, loosely install the pad pins until you hear an audible click, attach the caliper to the front fork, on models with dual front calipers check the alignment of the brake discs to the calipers. Loosen the axle pinch bolt nuts, tighten the axle nut to the proper torque, insert a 7/16 in. drill bit through the hole in the axle as far as it will go so that the contact point will have the edge of the drill bit touching the edge of the fork leg, place the caliper over the brake disc with the bleeder valve facing upwards, loosely install the long 12 pt/10 mm mounting bolt into the top hole on the fork leg, install the short 12 pt/10 mm mounting bolt into the bottom hole on the fork leg, tighten the bottom mounting bolt to 28-38 ft-lbs (38.51.5 Nm), final tighten the top mounting bolt to 28-38 ft-lbs (38.51.5 Nm), final tighten both pad pins to 180-200 in-lbs (20.3-22.6 Nm)., on models with dual front calipers, tighten the pinch bolt nuts while holding the slider against the 7/16 drill bit if necessary, remove the drill bit, pump the brake hand lever to move the pistons out until they contact both brake pads, verify the piston location against the pads and if the front wheel is off the ground, rotate it to check for excessive brake pad drag, check the brake fluid level in the master cylinder and fill it to the proper level if necessary using D.O.T. 5 SILICONE BRAKE FLUID, install the master cylinder reservoir cap and tighten its cap screws to 6-8 in-lbs (0.7-0.9 Nm), turn ignition switch ON pump the brake hand lever to verify operation of the brake lamp, test the brakes, test ride the motorcycle and if the brakes feel soft or spongy, bleed the system until you get a firm/hard brake lever and avoid making hard stops for the first 100 miles (160 km) to allow the new brake pads to become conditioned to the brake disc(s).

How to remove 2008 rear wheel fatboy


To remove a 2008 Softail rear wheel FIRST block motorcycle underneath the frame so that theweight of the motorcycle is off of the rear wheel, remove saddlebags if equipped, remove the belt guard and the debris deflector from the rear fork, inspect the wheel bearing end play and service the bearings if and as necessary, label the wheel spacers for left or right locationand orientation i.e. fork side or wheel side, remove the rear brake caliper from the caliper mount and support it using an elastic cord or such,For the FXCW/C modelsthe nut retainer will remain in the axle nut and does not need to be removed and if it is removed it must be replaced. For all but FXCW/C remove e-clip, remove the rear axle nut, and for FXCW/C remove the rear axle nut, loosen both axle adjuster screws an equal number of turns to remove tension from drive belt, with a suitable drift or other tool tap the axle towards the right side and remove it, remove the spacers and the caliper mounting bracket, move the wheel forward and slip the belt off of the sprocket, raise the motorcycle to allow enough clearance for removal of the rear wheel and pull the wheel with the belt sprocket from the rear fork.

To install a 2008 Softail rear wheel FIRST apply a light coat of wheel bearing grease to the axle, to the bearing bores and to the bore of the inner sleeve, roll the wheel into place in the rear fork and slide the drive belt over the drive sprocket, position the left bearing spacer between the wheel and the fork, from the right side carefully insert the axle (with its washer for FXCW/C models) through the right rear fork, the short spacer, the rear caliper mounting bracket, the long spacer and into the bearing bore, continue sliding the axle through the wheel hub sleeve, the left side spacer and the left rear of the fork, install the washer, the axle nut, and the retainer, verify correct axle alignment and the check belt deflection, check the wheel bearing end play after tightening the axle nut to the specified torque because excessive end play can adversely affect stability and handling and insufficient end play can cause bearing seizure, tighten the axle nut to 95-105 ft-lbs (128.8-142.5 Nm), install the belt guard and the debris deflector, install the brake caliper and pads, install the saddlebags, if equipped, pump the brake pedal to move the pistons out until they contact both brake pads, verify the piston location against pads, verify the position of the brake pads against the brake disc, rotate the wheel to check for any interference(s) or misalignment(s) and test the brakes for proper operation.

Change front tire


Remove brake caliper mounting screws from where they mount on the front forks. Slide caliper off brake disc and secure caliper
out of the way. Do not operate the front brake lever with the front wheel
removed or the caliper pistons may be forced out. Reseating the pistons requires disassembly of the caliper. On models with dual disc brakes, remove both calipers.

Remove axle nut lockwasher and flat washer from axle on left side of vehicle.

On right side of vehicle, loosen nut on pinch screw. Pull axle out of hub while supporting wheel.

Remove spacer and front wheel assembly.

Keep track of where each of the different size spacer went so you can put the back in the same order when reassembling.

For reinstall, you should get a manual as you will need to get torc specs. and other spacing and assemble instructions.

Hearing a scraping noise about 15 mph , replaced front wheel bearing


The scraping noise could be a brake pad rubbing on a rotor, most likely caused by not getting the axle set in the right spot after replacing the wheel bearings, (assuming everything else was done correctly). Start by supporting bike with front wheel off the ground. Loosen the front axle nut. Loosen the clamp on the bottom of the right side lower leg. Insert a 7/16" drill bit or steel rod or drill bit, (whatever will fit through the hole without too much slop). Tighten axle nut to 50 to 55 ft lbs. Tighten clamp nuts. Spin the wheel and operate the hand brake a few times. Wheel should now be centered with the brake rotors running in the center of the brake pads. If not, you may have mixed up the spacers.

Hello my dad has a 1100 sporster any way we took the front tire off and we should of marked how every thang goes back togeather we cant get the tire back on right anyone have any answers what side the...


If you have no idea where the spacers went ,then try them on any way ,You will know if they are in the right position as the disc break will only line up one way .and when you spin the wheel it should run fairly free .If it binds then its not right .

530 exc spacing between front fork & spacer


front axle installation: looking at the front of the bike:

slide the wheel into position and insert the axle from the left. with axle now through the right hand fork, install nut and tighten the left fork pinch bolts to secure the axle for tightening the nut. tighten the nut to 29.5 ftlbs. and loosen the left pinch bolts. now tighten the right pinch bolts and compress the front suspension while the left (from front) is still loose. now allow suspension to rest naturally and tighten all 4 pinch bolts to 11 ftlbs.
your done.......the axle is tighten against the rotor side and the other fork is then tighten in it's natural position so as not to cause premature seal and bushing failure and increasing stiction.
