Until 2000 all Harley Davidsons had tapered bearings in the wheels but in 2000 they went with a sealed bearing Any 3 1/2"wide 16" tall wheel will work even after 2000 with a sealed bearing you may have to get different spacers. You also need to make sure it has a 3/4 axle. If you fall in live with a wheel that has 1" axle bearings don't be discouraged because all the bearings have the same O.D (Outside Diameter) just different I.D. All you have to do is replace the bearings. So basically with a little work........every 3 1/2 " wide 16" tall wheel Harley Davison has ever made. P.S. You can even get adapters so your brake rotors will work . GOOD LUCK

I own harley fat boy. Front fork i feel is malalighned ? How to confirm?

Sit the bike upright. Place 2 long lengths of straight wood either side of the bike against the rear wheel towards the front wheel, Making sure they run parallel with the bike. Measure the distance from one side of the front wheel to the wood, then measure the other side. They should be the same.
The bike should be perfectly straight as should the wood. The distances between the 2 pieces of wood should be exactly the same at the front and rear of the bike.

1995 fat boy front wheel bearing assembly

I think its best to have that done by a shop. I take my wheel off the bike and bring it by while they change it. That's something that I will trust to a pro, too much depends on it. Just my opinion.

To remove rear wheel fro 2007 Fat boy do you have to take off brake caliper

You don't if you can get the bike off the ground high enough to allow the wheel to come straight down. But, I'd just take the caliper off. It only has two bolts holding it on.

Good Luck
