View Full Version : Sportster wheel swap.

01-11-2014, 11:15 PM
I have a 1996 sportster with spoke wheels and 2004 sportster with a mag and a solid but the problem is I want the mag and the solid on my 1996 hugger. I think axle sizes are same but could be wrong. The sprocket on 2004 looks a little bigger though. I was wondering if I can do this or do I need to make any mods to make they fit. Also would it just be easier to swap rotor and sprocket all over. Any help I would greatly appreciate. Thanks.

I read somewhere that the rotor/sprocket changed, hub is different from '99 and up, then Harley changed the rear hub from 3/4">1">25mm in 3 years... I'd stick to pre-99 if I were you.

Thought something might be funny with that rotor and sprocket. I think axle sizes are the same but I heard somewhere some was different after 99. Thanks

Checked axle sizes they are both 3/4. Just wonder of they will fit. I wonder what's different. Probably gonna try it to see if it will fit might be the only way to find out.
