Are we talking about the same guy? The OP HAS an 883R and is just trying to install the WHEEL from a 1200N, so he's already got dual discs (including the right lower fork he needs).

Exactly, I got a '07 883R and I'm just trying to change my rims for the Nightster ones... but i want to keep having my two front brake discs and just wondering how can I install the right one on the Nightster rim.

Thanks very much to all of you

some friends are telling me to be careful about having the rims drilled and so, and I am also thinking of the possibily of just buying a hub for dual disk for the Nightster rim... would you guys have that part number? I would like to know how much money I am talking about...

I was going to say....getting the rotor mounted is one thing.....but I dont think the for lower is set up to mount a caliper on the opposite side...I am not sure if harley makes a lower in the proper diameter to match up or not....check with your local parts guru....you might also have to get it powder coated to match.....it is not a simple bolt on obviously

We must have had NIGHTSTER stuck in our head. It happens to the best of us!

I considered doing this also, and I don't see why they have a concern. Taking it to a machine shop would most likely be the safest way to go, but I wouldn't have any hesitation in doing the job myself if I could put the wheel on my drill press!

if you look at the hub you'll see there's plenty of material there and no reason not to do it. I don't trust myself enough to do it with a hand drill but I wouldn't hesitate to do it with a drill press. If you're worried about it, take it with the rotor to a machine shop.

My bad I missed the part about having the 883R.
