Question about Harley Davidson Motorcycles

1 Answer

Will the Harley Davidson "TLA" contour front rim allow fitment of any tube type tire? If I replace the "TLA" rim with one that is not "TLA", can I still run the Dunlop D402?

All 16" front tires on HD models take 36 psi and All 16" rear tires on HD models take 36 psi(solo rider) and 40 psi(with passenger). You should check these pressures daily on your preride inspection.

SOURCE: what type of motor oil used in 1994 harley davidson 883

harley recomends that you use their oil but i would be carefull because it is a cynthetic now if you were using regular oil what that will do is clean all the old build up out of the motor this can be bad because after time there are pin hole leaks that occure but the build up stops it from leaking but if you use cynthetic you cant go back to regular oil it will gum up on you and ruen your motor so you got to find out what has been put in it. but use a 10-30

SOURCE: REPLACINGTHE REAR TIRE ON A HARLEY DAVIDSON 2008 HERITAGE SOFTAIL

Down and dirty way - take it to the dealer and have them install a new tire....

The hard way: place bike on bike jack and remove rear wheel by removing the axle nut and drifting the axle out of the wheel. Derail the belt/chain and drop the wheel out of the brake caliper. Remove valve stem to deflate the tire. Get a set of tire spoons and a 12 pack of COLD brew cause working with tire spoons is no FUN! Pry the bead loose with one spoon and the work your way around the wheel prying the tire beed to the outside of the wheel. Repeat this process for the back side of the tire (in the same direction as the first side so the tire will come off the wheel. Reverse and repeat to install new tire.

By now you will be loading your wheel into the truck and heading to the HD shop. It just really isn't worth the hastle to save the $25 or so to have this job done.

Align wheel with new tire on it with the brake caliper so that you have one shoe on each side of the rotor (you may have to actually remove the caliper if your pads are thick. Install your belt drive/chain drive and then lift the wheel to insert the axle through the swing arm, the chain tensioner and wheel. Reverse
on the other side. Place axle nut on axle and torque to about 80lbs.

Good to go.

Anyone know if i can put fatboy rims on my flstc...


Are your tire pressures correct? You should be getting approx. twice the mileage from your tires. Changing rims isn't going to help you. The tires will be the same, we just won't put tubes in them.

What are the standard wheel sizes of a 2009 FXST


Harley did not make a FXST in 2009 so I am assuming you need the tire and rim sizes for the 2003. The tire sizes are front 80/90-19 or a MH90-21 depending on rim size and rear is 150/80B-16 71H. I hope this answered your question.

Largest front tire on 2005 dyna super glide


You could make anything "fit", but thats also "custom". Maximum tire sizes are dictated by the rim size. For the 19" rim 100/90/90, for the 21' rim MH90-21. Some tire styles "look" larger than the stock Dunlop tires. Look at Avon or Continental tires.
