i think the speedo drive has a little molded ridge on it which should slide into a slot on the fork leg, thus stopping the drive from spinning round the spindle. drop the front spindle out and align the drive correctly and then slide back the spindle and bolt it all up and you should be all good to go.

SOURCE: rear wheel spacer placement?

Take great care on reassembly ,as the spacers may be of diffrent lenghts which will if put back wrongly will throw the wheel off its true running centre .and cause problems .Allway remember to mark parts or do a drawing when removing and stripping down for repair or servicing ..It saves a great deal of problems .Try and assemble the spacers and look to see if the wheel is in line with the belt drives .

SOURCE: smaller belts on newer fatboys

The newer style belts are Kevlar and do not need to be as wide as the older styles. They can handle the same torque while being thinner in width. Like above, also for clearance.

I have a 2001 Sportster but want to use 1993 Sportster 9 spoke mag wheels. Can I use the 1993 wheel spacers and 2001 left brake caliper for the 1993 9 spoke single disc mag wheel?

On this one, I'm not absolutely positive but I think Harley changed the diameter of the axles in 2000. Check the diameter of the axles or compare the part numbers for the wheel bearings. If they're different part numbers, that's probably the reason, they changed the size of the axle. Now, can you adapt the wheel to your application, maybe be you'd have to have the hub machined to accept the larger bearings.

Good Luck

I have a 1998 sportster 1200 custom and my rear tire is off center to the right not matching up on the frame, i bought it used but dont know if he did work on it. Why could it be off center?

It is possible that you have the wheel hub spasers on the wrong side. The spacers for the frame to bearing are of two different sizes and it has happened before. having the spacers on the wrong side of the wheel will cause the symptoms you describe!

Acceleration problem

If you are not running an open or free flowing exhaust go back to the stock size jets but use the DynoJet parts instead of the stock.
DJ jets tend to run bigger than oem jets
