2012 with new front wheel and tire

I just upgraded my front wheel 2012 FLTRU . I'm going from a 17, to the 19. Can anyone tell me if they know,
Can I expect to have abs issues because of the change?

I got a great deal at a local swap meet Sunday. It was a, too good to pass up deal. Was interesting ride back
to the house with the wheel as my passenger.

That is definitely in the plans along with a different set of rotors!

Looks great. I had the same stock wheel on my 13RGU. The new one will also be much easier to clean!

Does the new wheel have abs bearings installed?

as long as you are going with the stock size hd tires, you will not have any problem with the abs. in stock form, the 16'', 17'', 18'' and even 19'' tire/wheel all have almost identical rolling diameters. in fact, the 17'' is just a microt larger.

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

Yes, the wheel came with the ABS bearing, however when I installed it, it made a noise I didnt like,
so I ordered 2 new bearings for it just to be on the safe side.
