Hi Anonymous, jack up bike so rear wheel is off the ground and can spin, bang the caliper on the outer half with a deadblow or rubber mallet 2 or 3 good wacks. Try and spin the wheel, if it spins check the rotor for warpage then check the brake pedal to make it works and is not locking up the rear wheel to where it won't spin freely. If it does lock up then your caliper pistons are cocked and need to be pushed all the way back into the bores and re-bleed the system. Good luck
If you have the spacers in the proper places, the rear wheel is where it should be as far as "centering" goes. Not all wheels are designed to be "centered". On a Softail, there is an offset but I'm not positive about your road king.
Now, if you're talking about the alignment of the rear wheel in the swing arm, the RK has the adjusters on the rear of the swing arms's arms. Measure each bolt and when you get the proper belt tension with both bolts being the same length, you're aligned. The way I do it is move the wheel forward until the belt is too loose. Then set the lenghts the same. Then by turning each bolt the same amount each time, I slowly bring the wheel to the rear until I get the correct belt tension.
