Default Double disk brake on Nightster wheels

Hello,

I am thinking of putting the Nightster wheels on my 883R, and I was wondering if the Nightster front wheel will let me install my right side brake disk on it...

Would really appreciate some help.

Thanks a lot in advance

You will not be able to just bolt the rotor on and go. The Nightster hub has no threaded holes on the right side. It is pretty easy to drill and tap the hub for the holes you need though. That's what I did with mine when I converted it to dual disc.

Thanks a lot for your answer.

Would you have any pics of what you did?

Anything would help

I would be very careful here....I know BigHit did it if his is the thread I am thinking of....but just drilling tapping the hub does not ensure that the bolt pattern is concentric to the hub / axle (ie...they both share the same center point).

How far can you be off without causing balancing issues?....I don't know.

I think if I were to do this I would take it to a machine shop to be done....JMO

A good machine shop will not care if it is harley or huffy parts. You could just take the wheel all by itself since it is drilled and tapped on the one side of the hub....although giving them the rotor gives them one more part to measure. They'll just measure the bolt pattern and transpose that to the hub when they set the wheel/hub into the machine.

You can help them out too a little by telling them what size tap they'll need. If you have the HD parts manual it lists the bolt sizes in there. If you don't...I can get that info later tonight when I get back to mine.

Does the Nightster wheel not have a centering flange on the hub like many of the others do? I don't remember...

This is an easy job with a drill press using the disc as a drilling guide.

I'm not sure but I don't think there is a tab on the right side to mount a caliper onto the forks.
