So I have a 95 1200 with 9 spoke mags. I’ve been looking for a 21 inch spoke front wheel and I found a great set off of sportster 72. The deal was too good to pass up. What parts are needed for the install. Thank you very much.

Edit the wheels came off a 2014 sportster 72

There’s a good section comparing wheels and parts required in “Sportsterpedia “ I’m sure it would be a big help. Axle, spacer and bearings come to mind.

Well I have read on that site, but I am still a bit lost

Do the “enhanced by google” search and you will get a list of threads devoted to it use the 1995/2003 and see what you get.

1995 uses a 3/4" axle
2014 uses a 25mm axle, don't know how to get that in a 95 fork.

Front parts for NON-ABS use:
(43557-08) 21" wheel assembly
(43000001) 25mm axle
(9276A) (2) 25mm bearings 2012-2016 Model Year Front Bearing
(11888) ID=25mm Length=4.104 CENTER HUB BEARING SPACER (no flange)
(41242-08) (non ABS) (L) wheel spacer
(43358-08) (R) wheel spacer

If you look in the wheel assembly sections in the pedia, you'll notice 4 sets of numbers on the right.
http://sportsterpedia.com/doku.php/t...wheels01#front
Remember the number you click on and that'll link you to the different parts tables.
Or just find those numbers in the parts tables by scrolling to them.
But I don't know how much success you'll have with a phone.
May be best to view with a desktop/laptop.
Front and rear charts work the same.

Bearings & spacers are going to have to be changed. Forget going to H-D for them. They will tell you it won't work.
You'll need to know the outside diameter of the bearings in the new wheels, & the thickness of the bearing, to properly seat in the wheel. Should be able to find that info in here, somewhere. You already know the axle diameter is 3/4", so that will be the inside diameter of the new bearing. Take these measurements to a bearing supply store or website to get the right bearings. Then you just need to get the proper length inner hub spacer & the spacers that go between the bearings & the fork legs. If the wheel hubs are the same width, you can probly use the spacers you already have. You'll figure it out. Hope this helps.

Using 2000-later wheels on earlier models is fairly straight-forward if you understand the principles of assembling the parts on the axle. It will take some checking & verifying the fit of the parts but it is doable.

http://sportsterpedia.com/doku.php/t...arings_spacers
Quote:
The Outside Diameter of all 2000-later sealed bearings is 52mm, regardless of the Inner Diameter for the axle. This provides for the potential conversion installation of any 2000-later bearing set (3/4”, 1“ or 25mm Axle) on any 2000-later wheel. If performing a conversion from stock, the Inner Hub Spacers & Outer Axle Spacers may vary between front & rear installations and between various models.

All stock wheels created for 2000-2007 models (whether for front or rear) have a hub bearing depth designed to accept 21mm wide wheel bearings. Stock wheels for 2008-later models have a hub depth design for 15mm wide wheel bearings.
For 2000-later wheels:
For 3/4” Axle - Frt Bearing .. .. 9267(w=21mm)
For 3/4“ Axle .. .. .. 3.040” Frt Center Hub Spacer . .. 43613-00

Since you are using a 2014 wheel (2008-later), it will have a bearing cavity with a 15mm depth for the stock bearing. When you convert that to a 3/4" axle bearing, that bearing (9267) will be 21mm wide. Therefore, the bearing will stick-out on either side of the hub by 6mm (21mm bearing in 15mm cavity).



------------ IMPORTANT --------------

You will have to verify that the above Hub Spacer does in fact properly fit in the 2014 wheel. Proper fitment is where the Hub Spacer is a few thousandths longer than the distance between the bottom shoulders of the two bearing cavities (right & left). The Hub Spacer must keep the right side bearing from reaching the bottom shoulder of the cavity in order for the inner race to rotate freely. (see the Sportsterpedia diagrams)

Also, you will need to verify the length of the Outside Bearing Spacers needed. The brake rotor must align with the brake caliper & the spacers must be a proper length to fit between the fork legs.

Be sure you understand the concept & process of installing the bearings in the right order, with the right pressure points, to just barely touch the Hub Spacer.

------------ HD Wheel Conversion Kits --------------

There are also conversion kits available that provide a combination of bearings & hub spacers. Note that these kits were designed for using 2000-later wheels on 2000-later bikes. The use of one of these kits on a pre-2000 model bike with a 3/4" axle, will have the same considerations as listed above. You will need to understand and verify the fitting of the parts. (See the Sportsterpedia for kit P/Ns)
