Aftermarket Wheel

Question for Fix My Hog I bought a RC Components Rear 17 x 6.25 Savage Eclipse One-Piece Wheel w/o ABS. The rim is 6.25 inches wide. Will the stock tire (180/60-17) fit on this rim? Can I go with a 200/55-17? would it fit in the FXDWG without modifications?

Fix My Hog Answers Fairly certain that the 180 tire will be too small. Never tried to stretch one over a 6.25″ rim. The 200 tire will not fit your model without modification.

      Hi, Marion. Yes, if the ignition switch has become mis-aligned, you have a problem. It can be really tricky to get it realigned. Unfortunately, the only advise we have is to use a flashlight and a screwdriver. It will be tedious. Be extremely careful not to break the switch. https://www.fixmyhog.com/posts/harley-tips/
