SLD,

Thanks for posting the weights of the wheels used on the new Roadsters. Reps to you.

FWIW.
Per SLD's post below, a bare rear wheel for the new Roadster weighs 15lb-2.6oz.

I weighed a 13-spoke, 3.0x16, cast rear, wheel from a 2000 Sportster. The weight (including sealed bearings, spacer, and valve stem): 17lb-8.0oz.

I'll probably weigh them some other time (I have guests coming today, so no time to dilly-dally around), but here they are:


This is sorta how it'll look...


Thanks to everyone that helped out early on this thread to point me in the right direction! Much appreciated!
Will these wheels work on a stock 2000+ 39mm narrow glide fork? I absolutely love these and just want to both them on with a bearing kit.

Nope, mid glide is required to make the wheel fit...and even if that were not the case the 120/70-19 tire on the new wheel would not fit narrow glide anyway.
(wanted to do this myself, ended up going with the new Roadster rear wheel only so far, bolt in on my 08 as it has a 25mm axle...may try making the front fit in the future. Would also require new fender)

FYI - They aren't the standard HD mid glide width either. It's close, but it's not going to be a straight bolt on unless you use the Roadster front end. If I recall correctly, the hub is slightly wider than the standard mid glide hub, so the rotor will have clearance issues at the caliper. Gonna have to change how the caliper mounts or machine the hub, not sure what would be easier. I gave up using these wheels because of it (and went with carbon fiber BST's for my project).

Thanks, good to know. Cvaria got the 16+ front wheel to work on his Sportster but it took a good bit of tinkering IIRC, he posted a detailed writeup but pretty sure it was on another HD forum.

You'll need to use Midglide Trees ... On cvaria's, the 2011-later XL1200C ("Custom") Trees were used.
