Good evening fellow Gliders! I'm looking at the HD Agitator 19" front / 18" rear wheels for my 2013 FLTRU. Parts guys says they will go right on with no issues. What I want to know is first, is that true? Second, how will it affect the ride, cornering and overall handling? Third, what about the speedometer calibration, will that be off?

Thanks in advance for your help.

No issues just ride it. Speedo isnt terribly accurate anyway, I'd just compare to a GPS. Some tuning devices will allow you to calibrate the speedo.

i put this combo on the wife's bike, 2012 rgc. yes, they will go right on with no issues. no appreciable difference in the ride, either cornering or overall handling, and the speedo cal is a non issue.

Won't be a problem at all. Just need to make sure the bearings are for your bike be it ABS or not

New wheels and tires should be same overall height/diameter as old wheels and tires. Bigger rim = less sidewall. So long as you stay with harley supplied parts.

the front tire is virtually identical, but the rear tire does sit a little taller. overall diameter is about 3/4'' bigger, so that raises the rear end 3/8''.

I did the same swap on my 13 RGU. No issues with the install and my speedo is dead on with my GPS at 70mph. Only down side is right now, Harley dealer is the only place to get the correct spec rear tire. And they are proud of it.

I just ordered my Dunlop 18" rear tire from Surdyke for $237 and picked up an American elite front 19" for $105.
