21 front Wheel

I was just at the local dealer an he tells me that there is going to be a factor 21 front wheel for the 2017 and up Road Glide. It will be the same as the one on the 2018 CVO Road Glide. Has any one heard to this.

You mean the 2018's

The CVO Road Glide has a factory 21, thats the only one with a 21. I didnt have to "hear to this", its on their web site.

Since the wheel is a part, it can be ordered, so yes, it can be purchased and installed on your road glide.

true that. but don't just order the wheel. they've changed the suspension and the front fender to go along with it, and if you have lowers, not gonna fit.

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.

He said that it could be add to my 2017 as a kit so not sure what that would include. An I have add lowers so if that is the case looks like I will not be doing the change. Not sure what a taller wheel would do to the bike handling.

You can buy from eastern performance the 21" "Reinforcer wheel" which is the stock Harley enforcer wheel but 21" Its $899 for the regular wheel and $1199 for it in chrome.

I like this wheel vs the new Knock-out wheel that the 18 RG CVO comes with since the Reinforcer matches the 17 RGS wheels. I wish they offered this wheel in contrast chrome. I wonder if you could send it to have someone polish the exposed raw aluminum then clear coat it to look like a contrast chrome.

wonder if there would be some negative characteristics if one were to go with the eastern perf 'reinforcer' in a 21 and keep the stock 16 on the rear. I believe there was some bad juju in the 21/17 combo....

Someone please educate me as to what difference Lowers have on whether or not a 21" front wheel makes. If it'll fit in the stock fender what difference does it make?

Life is too short to put up with stupidity. Strive every day to educate someone, including yourself!

I dunno. but they are very adamant about it not fitting. the only thing that I can think of is with the combination of the different fender (mayhaps they mount it higher), the lowered suspension components, and the larger diameter wheel, is that there may not be enough clearance and the fender contacts the lowers?

all I know is that i'm not going to be the one to spend $2500 to find out. not to mention, the components don't find 2013 and below anyways....
