I do not know anyone that has ever measured them. Best bet would be to contact a Harley-Davidson parts person but I am doubtfull that they would even have measuremsnts on those paqrts.

SOURCE: what is the sequence of putting spacers on rear

Not much on newer hogs but I'd guess if the spacers aren't the same length when you got the wheel on you'd see that the wheel isn't centered.Try again.Put the end thru the swing arm put on a spacer,push it thru the hub,put on the other spacer,push it thru swing arm put on washers and nut[loosely]and check the alaignment.Like I said I'm not much.

SOURCE: Hello, I have a 99

Sounds like you've got it together correctly. There is no washer between the brake caliper bracket and the swingarm. You can put the axle in from either direction. We usually put them in from the left side so that we no longer have to remove a muffler to remove the rear wheel. The nut is now on that side. Just make sure the wheel turns smoothly and the brakes work correctly before taking in out on the road. If you hear a chirping noise when you shift gears, your rear belt is too loose.

Good luck

Show me proper spacer placement on rear axle of 2002 hd duece


The axle enters from the disc brake side through a collar (washer with a cut out on it, axle adjuster bolts sits in cut out), through the swing arm, through the plain spacer, then through the wheel, then through the spacer that has a type of grouve in the middle of it, through the swing arm and finally through another collar, then a washer and finally the axle nut. Nut torque is 60 - 65 ft/lbs. Do not exceed 65 ft/lbs or wheel bearing damage will occur.

You need a parts book schematic, service manual does not really show much. Right side insert axle through adjusters in swingarm then brake caliper support arm then short spacer then into bearing in wheel then there is a spacer in the hub between that bearing and the left bearing so then through those and out left side through long spacer into swingarm and adjuster and then out left side of swingarm, install washer, cone nut and then "E" clip.

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.

Suzuki s40 rear wheel removal


Loosen axle nut a little, raise and support rear tire off the ground, loosen chain adjustments and remove axle. Reinstalling is a bit tougher and it's much easier if you have an assistant to help line things up. Make sure you install the spacers and brake caliper exactly as they were, most spacers are different sizes left & right. Adjust chain and tighten axle nut.

Rear tire is hitting the belt.


As long as the tyre is of the correct size and fitment, and the wheel is aligned, you will have to check the security of the belt drive sprocket on the rear wheel, and the cushdrive in the rear wheel, grasp the rear pully on the top and the bottom, with the wheel tightened, check for exsess play in the bearing by pulling top and bottom, this would cause a problem, like you are having

How do I get the rear tire off of my 1999 heritage softtail classic.


Jack the bike up off the ground. Remove the axle nut and the belt guards. You might want to loosen the belt tensioning bolts and allow the front wheel to move forwards just a bit. Drive the axle out. You may have to take your muffler off so the axle will come out. When you put the axle back in, start from the left side of the bike and have the nut behind the muffler. Make sure you mark and make a drawing of what spacer goes where. You should have three as best as I can remember. One is a long spacer and two short ones. The short ones go in the wheel bearings and the long one goes on the belt pulley side. Lower the wheel and allow it to roll forward a bit. Jack the bike up a bit higher and work the drive belt off the drive pulley. Tip the wheel over and jack the bike up until you can get the wheel out.

good Luck

How do you remove the rear wheel on a 1997 springer softail? I have to replace the bolts on the belt sproket on the rear wheel.


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.

Good Luck

Rear axle berrings


Tools needed- typical socket and ratchet set, Axle slide hammer, Wiz Wheel type rotary cut off tool, chisel, ball pein hammer, hydraulic press, bech vice
First you must remove the rear wheels, then you must remove the brake capiler and mounting bracket, remove the brake rotor. unbolt 4 nuts on back side of brake dust shield that hold the seal and bearing securly in place. then you must attatch the slide hammer to the axle shaft by using the vehicles lug studs and lug nuts. use the slide hammer to knock the axle shaft out of the housing. it generally takes about 10-15 hard slams before it comes loose. once axle shaft is free to come out remove the slide hammer and pull the shaft from the axle tube. place the axle shaft into a vise and use the cut off wheel to cut off the bearing spacer. cut parralell to shaft until you hear a snap sound once it snaps use the hammer to slide the spacer off the end of the shaft. next you need to cut the bearing off the shaft using a the same technique being careful not the cut the shaft or the seal retainer plate. once the bearing is off then you can slide off the old axle seal. now slide on a new axle seal, axle bearing, and bearing spacer. take assembly to a hydraulic press and press the spacer and bearing onto the shaft until it seats squarely and make sure its all the way down onto the axle shaft. lubricate bearing with gear oil. and install shaft back into axle tube making sure that the recess in the seal retainer plate lines up with the abs sensor wire. tighten all nuts evenly top off gear oil
