View Full Version : deuce wheel fits 04-05

i was able to put 1 inch bearings on the wheel. only problem i have is the spacer between the bearings. i need to have the hub machined to fit the bearing spacer. i may take a chance riding it without the spacer. this should be good news for the 04 sporties, cause they have the 3/4 inch bearings. you can fit 170/60/17. i have fitted a used michelin pilot 180/55/17 just for test fitting, but sidewalls were pulled in and still plenty of space . i will put a 170 on this with adequate space between the belt and tire.

FINALLY, someone answered my question... so you're saying that the 17" deuce wheel WILL fit with NO modifications on an '04 sporty??? i've asked everyone about it and no one could, or would, give me s straight answer... tell me, how much room is there between the belt and a 180 tire?? i was just gonna use the standard 160/70x17 tire... thanks...

there was about 1/4 inch left between the belt and tire with the 180.

that much room with a 180 tire?? do u have any pics? i would like to get the SE deuce 6 spoke wheel to match my 6 spoke front... with the taller 160/70 tire to raise the back a bit to level the bike, i hate the 'low in the back look'... your positive it will fit? thanks

sorry, i tried to take pics and the battery died on my camera and i forgot that i don't have the cable to load the pics on the computer. we are in the middle of trying to sell our place and the cable is in one of the boxes that is at my mom's house...

leo .... This is very interesting. Please keep us informed as to how this works out.

Are you going to ride the bike with both the 170 and the 180 rear tire?

I take it you have the 170 on it now. Does this rear tire look a lot wider than the stock 150?

Thanks,
Ron

leo
12th February 2006, 18:26
Ron, i'm going to ride the bike with the 170 METZ MARATHON. the tire looks slightly wider than the stock.
i finally got the sleeve that goes between the bearings, just need to find a machine shop to bore the hub...
since i already have the 1 inch bearings on the wheel, i will ride it as is to get some feel after i finish polishing the wheel.

Theres room under the fender for A 170-180? If a 180 would fit, I will go chain drive and 180 tire, But I thought there was no room, with out going with a different fender setup.

leo
13th February 2006, 02:50
the 180 should fit under the fender, depends on how wide the wheel is. the deuce wheel is 4.5, so the edges of the tire would get pulled in...

only problem i have now is the rotor, i can't get the bolts off. i snapped two torx bits without being able to loosen any of the bolts.

any tips on how to get the rotors off? i had no problems with the front rotors.

leo
18th February 2006, 01:43
update... found a machine shop to expand the hub to accept the 1 inch bearing spacer... shop owner says he can do this on thursday. was quoted $60 bucks... hope all works well.

Were all still waiting for the final outcome.

After all is said in done ... maybe you could post everything that needs to be purchased / and or modified to make this whole thing work on a late model 'rubber mount' Sporty.

Thanks for your efforts!

update:
got my wheel back from the machine shop. put new bearings and sleeve on.
tricky part was on the brake side. i had to pull the inner brake pad off to be able get rotor in the caliper.
rode around the block, and the ride seems a little stiffer. maybe from the tire going to a 60 series. need to break the tire in, a little slippery.

so, whats the clearance between the tire and belt? did anything hafta get "adjusted"? my stock tire looks very close to the belt, i can't believe a 170 fit on there...

leo
25th February 2006, 03:38
i did not adjust or shim anything... still at least about a 1/4 inch clearance... i had a 180 on it for test fitting and it still cleared.

got the tire broken in. did some hill riding and the bike still felt good. the bike still turns pretty quick.

Leo, you don't see why something with a little sportier profile would fit do you? Like a Dunlop qualifier? 170 is 170 right? within a few mm? I'm lowered and I wonder if the more mushroom profile would rub in the center of the fender? I guess the 60 in the 170/60 should account for that as well though. I'd like to hear your thoughts since you mentioned you mounted a couple different tires. Thanks,
Eric

Eric,
I do not see why it wouldn't work. If in doubt, you can always check the clearance in the center of the tire and fender and see how much clearance you have in your shocks before you bottom out.

i just looked at my bike, and there is less then 1/8th" between the belt and tire... i went to the dealer and looked at a new dyna with a 160/70 and that tire is about 1/2" wider then the 150/80, so thats 1/4" on each side, so no way could i ever fit the 160/70... i wonder if a 150/70 would fit, or fit on a 4.5" wheel...

I wonder if there is a offset sprocket on the 05 sporty? what else is diff between the 04 and 05 sporty other than the swingarm, axle, and bearings?

I do not know anyone else in my area with a sporty to do some comparisons with.
Can some people meet up and do some comparisons with the 04 n 05 sporty?

eness76
14th March 2006, 04:03
I've got one on order, and I'm going to use the same tire as you. Mine's an 04. If it doesn't work I know somebody with an 05 will want it.

eness76
14th March 2006, 04:28
I just measured my 04, and I have about a half inch between my 150 dunlop and the belt. I believe an inch is 25.4mm, so that's about 12-13mm. The 170 should be about 10mm per side, so it's gonna be tight but should fit, provided 150 is really 150 and 170 is really 170. I'd be suprised if HD would be using a different sprocket on the 05 when they just retooled for the 04, but stranger things have happened. If the 05 sprocket were offset, then the front sprocket would have to be offset, or the engine shifted in teh frame. If the front sprocket were offset, it would probably require a different sprocket cover and on down the line. I'm hoping if it fits Leo's 05, it'll fit my 04. Does anybody have access to OEM part numbers? Cross reference the 04 and 05 rear sprockets and see if they're different.

i made a list of some common tire widths...

Dunlop D401......... 150/80x16... 156mm wide... 25.45" tall

Dunlop K591......... 160/70x17... 165mm wide... 25.80" tall

Metzeler ME880...... 150/80x16... 153mm wide... 25.98" tall

Metzeler ME880...... 160/80x16... 162mm wide... 26.06" tall

Metzeler ME880...... 160/70x17... 157mm wide... 25.75" tall


looks like the ME880 160/70 should fit, only 1mm wider than stock...

I just installed a deuce rear wheel on my 04 1200 custom..............WOW ! !
It was basically a bolt on, the brake caliper / lower belt guard gap is tight, but like he said , a little creative disassembly and re-installation of the brakes
makes for easy install. ABSOLUTELY WORTH IT ! ! ! I bought my wheel and tire off of E-bay for $170.00 , Allready had a new dunlop 160/70/17 , I installed the wheel with the tire rotation backwards { due to the drive side difference in sporty vs. Deuce} will change later.

Hey leo i'am not sure but i don't think theres a offset on the '05's but they did beef up the swingarm on the '05's. I would think thats were the tighter fit comes in at. What do you think? I'd like to do that mod on my '05 down the road when i can afford it. That 60 series low profile looks killer plus i like the look of the deuce rim too.

Bill2,
from my experience with this, my 05 seems to still have plenty of space between the belt and tire. My next project might be trying to find a used rear wheel off an 06 nighttrain and fit a 190 maybe 200 tire then convert to chain and check for fender clearance issues.

Aint gonna happen. I measured for weeks (literally) trying to figure out how to get a 180 to fit. Even if you shave down all the hardware in the fender to make as much room as possible, you'd only have about 1.5mm of clearance on either side - not enough for the movement of the wheel. However, a 180 will fit the stock frame and swingarm no problems. I've settled on a 160, only because you can't get a 170 in an 18" wheel.

i was thinking about this idea just to see if we can use the stock swingarm, but will need to spread the struts and get a new rear fender. may have to use a spacer for the rear shock mount for the swingarm.

any 04 rubbermounts want to try this? just because the wheel does not have to be machine to fit a 1 inch bearing to fit an 05+.

They did exactly what was stated before - all you need to do it run a chain drive, and get rid of the stock fender. The frame and swingarm will fit it no problem.

That pick you show ...

Is that a comparison between a stock 04-06 Sportster 150 / 80-16 tire mounted on the stock 3.00" x 16" wheel and a 170 / 60-17 tire mounted on a 4.50" x 17" Deuce wheel?

Also, did we ever find out whether or not a larger 180 tire can be used with the 4.5" x 17" Deuce wheel and mounted on a 04-06 Sporty with no other modifications to the bike?

Thanks,

Yes the tire on the left is mounted on teh stock rim, and on the right is the deuce wheel with the 170. I believe Leo said the 180 fit, but that's pinching on a 4.5" rim. In my past life, my ZX7R had a 190, but that was on a 6" rim.

eness76
29th March 2006, 03:13
Also, in that pic of the two tires/wheels, the 150 is getting a false wide feeling because of the shadow on the wall next to it if you notice. On the bike the 170 looks clearly more meaty. One thing to remember though, it's not drastic like it's a 230 or something. I believe the previously stated true width of teh Dunlop 150 is 156mm, and the Metz 170 is 169mm. So you're looking at 6.5mm per side of additional width.

Turbota
29th March 2006, 03:22
I really like the idea of the 170 and Deuce wheel on the back of the Sporty ...

But, the more I think about it, when it comes time to replace my stock Dunlop 150 rear tire, I might just replace it with a Metzler 160 (I know they fit too on the stock cast wheel with no other mods to the bike)

I guess you would call that a 'Plus 1'

I'll second that a 180 is really a little too wide for a 4.5" rim. 180's generally like 5.5" rims, and at that point you will have some belt and fender interference.

Did you guys know that a Dunlop k591 150 tire is actually 163mm with and fits on a stock wheel performs very well and looks meatier that stock and there is no fudging around.

The difference between the look of a deuce wheel and a 170 versus a k591 on a stock wheel is very slight.

I will keep running this until I convert to 240 rear.
Just my 2 cents(Canadian that is LOL)

Ok,
For all you folks that have done this, I have a couple of questions.

How much material was left on the wheel where the spacer goes after machining? My bike has the one inch axle and it looks like the hub will be awfully thin if I machine the center out enough to fit the 1" spacer. Anyone had any problems with cracks?

28th November 2007, 20:17
I must either be having a senior moment or a brain fog.

QUESTIONS to eliminate the above malady:

1. Does a Deuce REAR 17" cast wheel (any year) fit a 2004 Roadster?
2. If so, any mods required for the Axel?
3. Does the stock Rotor & Pulley bolt right on?
4. If "NO" to 3, what is required?

Brett Donahue of '07 Iron Butt fame let me know his Delano Store mounted an '07-8 Fat Boy front onto a Sportster.

If the Deuce fits, I have 2 options to get a 17" Rear to run Dual Sport tires (Distanzia, TKC80, etc) on my Roadster in Namibia & Southern Africa where we will live?

Will it be on the exhaust side or the rear break pump side?
Thanks in advance.

BUMP of an old thread.

I have on the way a 04 Deuce wheel for my 06 custom.
From what I have read the hub will need machining to fit my 1" axle.
WHAT IF:
I got a 3/4 axle from a 04....
I found that I can make my own spacer with thinner tubing allowing the 1" axle to fit...

Also I am still puzzled about the 180 tire, will it fit without grinding bolts and nuts on my struts or is 170 the max ?

Well I will keep bumping this one or make me a new thread....
I got me a hardly used Metz 160/60/17 with 6/32 tread left in the middle for half of a new one.
I got my 04 axle, with its spacers, and adjusters. So when I get the tire later this week then I will get it mounted and hopefully on to the bike this Sunday.

Yes that rim will fit no problem and if your bike is 04 and newer you can actually get a 170 up in there. A 180 would leave you no room and will rub especially 2up unless you convert to chain.

Time for an update!

Got the wheel. Like new, not even dirty finger prints (but my own) bearings good! I think it was pulled right away as in the box was the instructions for a chrome rim.

Got the '04 axle so no machining needed.

Ok, what when on. I loosened the bolts on the pulley, tried the rotor but no room. So I removed the belt guards, bottom one is a PIA!! Pulled the axle, got the old rear tire out. Put the swing arm on jack stands for the night. Man I could really use a lift but I am making do with what I got.
Put the rotor on the new rim with socket head Allens and blue loktite.
I HATE TORX!!!!

The project is running smooth EXCEPT I need to get longer bolts for the rotor. So off to the local accessory shop or my local fastener store.

Made my spacers, here is the one on the brake arm. Did the same for the axle adjusters. Good old PVC adapter from home depot.

New rear wheel temp installed on the bike. I need some longer bolts for the rotor. What a pain!! After a night of looking I found Buell rotor bolts are the 3/8-16 1.75" long I want. Normal HD is 1" long. And its HAS TO BE button head to clear the brake bracket.

Damn that is going to look SOOO good when I get it finished.

Ok, since last night I have been perplexed, bewildered, confounded, and alike about why I could not get my rotor bolts to tighten up.

Simple answer, the wheel was backwards. And here I thought that everyone before me who said this was a straight forward job was a liar...

Turns out one side of the wheel (rotor) is 3/8-16 and the other (pulley) is 7/16-14.

So, with that revelation I now have it together and test fitted. But now for the hiccup, the tire is backwards. So off to my indy to get it flipped around. Then its grease and a big hammer to slide my axle in..... Maybe then I can put some more miles on the bike.

And oh yea I also put in the running light / turn signal part to make my rear turns into brake and running lights.
