Just snagged a pre 2000, 9 spoke wheel off of ebay which im planning on running on my '03 sportster. Looks like it came off an 86-99 dyna or sportster. Has anyone done this swap here that can give me a heads up on what i need to do to get this to fit? Ive searched and havent found a specific answer to my question. Thanks!

Spacers that's it. Weather it's front or rear your pulley and rotors should all bolt right up. Check the bearings too though while you're at it. Might as well change them now if they need to be

Rotor etc is not going to bolt up, the hub is smaller on older rims. Changed it all when they went to sealed bearings in 2000.

so im probably looking at spacers and some machined rings to make up the gap for the pulley and rotor? or i could probably just run the old style rotor and pulley?

You need these to make up the difference in locating hole:

They let you use rotors & pulleys for the timken bearing wheels on the sealed bearing hubs.

I machined a spacer that bolts to the old style hub with a shoulder on it that fits the new style rotor. Same bolt patterns but the i.d. of the rotor mount is larger on newer bikes.

I'm bringing this one back to life. Does anyone know how these Pulley/Sprocket Spacer Adapter Rings from vulcanworks stay in place once they're mounted? I'm running a pre 2000 laced wheel with all my components off my 2002 sportster (Sprocket, Brake rotor, brake etc). Everything is great except the bore in the sprocket & brake rotor are larger than the hub OD. I've ordered these spacers, but I'm curious how they're going to stay in place once I'm riding. Any input would be appreciated.

yep. I've used them several times for several years. They're actually only necessary until the bolts are tightened.

Is it possible to just run old style rotor , pulley, wheel and bearings on an 02?

Wanted to bring this back from the dead
If I were to run a 1999 Rear wheel off a Sportster and put in on a 2004 Sportster, would my brake rotor/brake caliper/sprocket all bolt and line up with that spacer from Vulcan making up the difference? Or do I need to also run a set of spacers somewhere?
