Question Help info on a 21 front on a 2015

looking for some info ,I might be taking my wheels off my 2012 fltrx and want to fit them on a 2015 road glide special

my wheels are a front fat daddy 21x3.5 from ride write
and a 18 rear solid center line

I know they will fit the bike but not sure about front fender do I need a spacer kit or does it fit ???
on my 2012 it was just a small mod to tilt the fender a bit .....
also I have linked abs on the 2015 any problems with the wheels going on the 2015

When I put the 21" on my 2015, a spacer kit was put on my stock fender. Don't know about the ABS. It might depend on whether or not your 2012 has ABS.

Ull need ABS wheel bearing, otherwise ABS light will b on forever, and not work correctly ( I'm pretty sure). That is my take on how it all works, from my research

Performance Machine did mine at the same time they installed the new wheels at Ocean City Bike Week. They didn't give me the specs on the spacer.

thank for the help ,
from my visit last night with the HD dealer .
he said I would need the spacer for the fender

also for ABS
said that since I running 18 inch rear and 21 up front the ABS would work as normal BUT I'm still going to buy the special ABS bearing
for the front that compensates for the 21.....

I don't want to have problems from the start !

new bike should be a beast to ride the stage 5 tire shreader kit was just installed a few months ago ..
