Enforcer Front rotors loose on install

Hey guys... I installed my enforcer wheel on my 2012 last night and noticed in a very slow test ride that my rotors were loose ! I Have hd hardware including the bushings and crush washers and used blue loctite. The bolts are all tight yet I still have play! After going thru the instructions, it says to let the loctite cure before riding.. which ill admit i did not do. its just baffling to me however that thats all that keeps it from that little bit of play? just a dab of loctite?

if that is the case, is there anything wrong with taking one out one by one and putting a fresh bead of loctite on them ? (on wheel)

TIA

I would double check everything to be sure every thing is in place. If I remember correctly the rotor bolts have a shank on them and need a funky washer to keep the rotor floating. My enforcer rotors don't have play though

So i cant remember the part numbers, but i know i paid 40 bucks per rotor for hardware from HD that had the bushings and crush washers. and the bolts are torqued down. Is there a possible chance that the bolts are too long? it seems they are bottoming out in the wheel hub if there is still play.

also, im not listening to harley per that phone call about the floating rotors.. I got you telling me theres no play and the company i got the rotors from (rubicon cycles) just sent me a video of his rotors..... NO PLAY IN THEM!

I had a question about this last year and went to 2 different dealerships and put my hands on about every rotor on the touring bikes I could. Found that more than half had some play but there were some rotors that were tight. Talk to a couple of HD techs and an indy and they all said that there could be play since they are floating rotors. My friends 13' RG has quite a bit of play and he has had no issues in 30k miles. Smooth as silk when applying the brakes in any situation. I agree that it doesn't seem right but I am more than convinced it is very normal. Hope this helps.

oh wow. Man, its baffling to know the vast difference in play/no play from bike to bike with the same setup. i have a video of mine but dont know how i would upload it on here. If i had to choose, i think id rather be on the no play side of the spectrum. Im thinking about getting a slightly shorter grade 8 bolt so it doesnt bottom out and can torque them down.

Keep in mind it is designed to be a floating rotor and there are plenty of other types of floating rotors that have some play in them. If your braking is smooth and you feel no vibrations I would say don't worry about it and ride on. MOCO is not going to tell you something that is BS on their braking system for fear of a major lawsuite. If it really bothers you then I would go back to the original wheel and non-floating rotors. I get the extreme caution dealing with brakes and I don't blame you but most likely they are acting like they are designed.

I can't say why some of them have play and others don't but if you feel everything is in place properly and the rotor isnt just floppin around then take it for a ride around the corner and see how it feels
