    What year is your bike, Keith? Until 2004, the OE rear tyre was initially a 130, then a 150. From the 2005 MY, 200 rears were introduced for the Softail Standard and Night Trains, but with an offset primary and a different frame.

    Sorry my bike is a 06 and has a 200mm . I,am trying to get a 07 FXSTC rear wheel to fit I think i am nearly there just got a spacer to fit behind the pulley. I know the spacer near the swing arm is diffrent and have got that . I was just looking at the bike and as it is there is very little clearence with the stock wheel in . So i just was wondering what other peoples clearences where . cheers
