Uneedaraptor is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Will 1996 buell PM wheels fit 1992 883?

Will these wheels be a direct bolt on or does it require some fab work?

Bump. Are the pm chicane wheels extremely light?

Without having them on hand there is now way to know for sure, HD only owned 49 percent of Buell during this time and those bikes sharing the same brake caliper, rotor, and hub specs and being two different types of bikes the chances are slim.

They are not exactly the same weight as the non Pm tuber wheels, but they are close in weight. The Pm rear wheel is a half inch wider. Both are lighter than a typical XL wheel and neither are as light as an Xb wheel. The Xb wheels are crazy light. Buell also made some magnesium versions of the XB that are lighter still.

None of the Buell wheels is a direct bolt on for any Sportster.

Thanks Steve, I just picked up a complete xb front end to bolt on. I recall a guy saying that they were about 15lbs lighter than the tube front ends. Not for sure though. This seemed like the logical route considering the price of drag wheels and pmfr front ends.

Ill end up fitting the 1/2" wider xb rear wheel on this winter, but i think i have to change brake and sprockets.

XB front end is light, but not 15# lighter than tuber stuff. Maybe 7-8#, which is still crazy. I put an XB front end on my last S2.

In my opinion, that is e cheapest way to go for light wheels.
