Can anyone tell me if the new "Profile" laced 21 inch front rim from an '05 XLC will bolt onto my 2000 XLC? Did HD change the axle size or something? The catalog lists them as for "'04 and above". Am I screwed or is there an adaptor?

2000-up front wheels are the same I'm pretty sure. It's the rear they changed in 05

Oh No, the one I have a chance of getting is off an '05 XLC!!!

Can any confirm if it fits or not?

I changed my original post to include this info.

The HD website says a 21 laced wheel fits 2000-up. The profile laced wheel fits 05-up. Hmmm. Kinda makes ya wonder.

Yea...Scaring the crap out of me. My neighbor just bought an '05 with that wheel as a $275 upgrade but now is thinking about a billet wheel. If he does, he'll sell the profile to me for $275. That's why I'm asking.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I think they just changed the rear wheel axle to 1" in 04 or 05. Maybe I'm incorrect.

The rear axle was changed to 1" in 05. Think the front is the same.

I would check with the dealer. I believe the axle is the same on the front but what about the brake caliper and rotor. In the book it says it fit 05 models but doesn't state it fits 04 sportys.

I'd love to put that "Profile" wheel on the front of my bike...can't find axle sizes in any book. Guess i'll have to pull out the micrometer and take some measurements...
