Convert to 21" Fat Front Wheel
A Quick Summary
Converting your Harley Davidson Street Glide, Road Glide, Road King, etc to run a 21 x 5.5 Front Wheel isn’t super difficult, but be sure to do it the right way. We have done the research needed to know what you need to do to make this conversion.
Buying a package deal can make your life a whole lot easier, because it’s not as simple as just slapping the big fat 21″ on and running some heavy fork oil. We have worked with hundreds of customers to help convert their Harley Baggers, from Street and Road Glides to even putting them on Softails.
Feeling Lazy? Don’t want to read all of this? We’ve already made complete kits for you!
#1 - Pick Out a 21 x 5.5" Wheel
Make sure you want the WIDE 21 x 5.5 wheel and not the standard width 21 x 3.75 size!, We offer both in a wide variety of styles to choose from starting at $1,499 and all of our wheels come fully assembled and ready to install! We Guarantee Fitment on RYD Wheels, Vixen Performance, & Replicator Wheels.
#2 - Get Rake Triple Trees
The 21 x 5.5 is so wide that since the tire has to be rounded, it is taller than a standard 21 inch wheel and tire. Therefore, to fit it, you need triple trees to rake your bike out properly to make up the difference of the larger 21 inch wheel. We offer the highest quality triple trees for a great price. These work great and come with a wobble free gaurantee!
#3 - Get a 21 Wide Fender
Your stock fender will not work…. its way too narrow. Lets put on a Wide Fender so we can get it right!
#4 - Fork Legs Optional
Dramatically Improve the look of your build with Custom Lower Fork Legs. The stock ones are cheap cast aluminum. Our large variety of aftermarket ones will look awesome on your bike but as stated, they are not required!
#5 - Brake Rotors
Transfer the Stock Rotors over to your new 23″ Wheel or Purchase new matching rotors for the wheel you buy. Your choice! You can also choose Dual Disk like your Harkey Touring comes with or read up on doing a Harley Single Disk Conversion
