This is a step by step instructional video on how to remove and reinstall the rear wheel on a Harley Davidson Softail that came from the factory with a 200mm rear tire. While I’m working on a 2006 Night Train (FXSTBI), other year & model Harley’s came with this configuration (see below). This job seems fairly straight forward, but it is anything but. There are quite a few pit-falls you need to watch out for and ultimately can be a P.I.T.A. especially if it is your first time. I’ll cover various tips & tricks to make this job quick & easy. With a little practice you can have this job done in less then hour, even if you take your time.
2006 was the first year that Harley Davidson came out with a motorcycle with a 200mm rear tire from the factory. At that time it included the Night Train (FXSTB & FXSTBI), Standard (FXST & FXSTI), and Springer (FXSTS & FXSTSI) models. Later on the Cross Bones (FLSTSB & FLSTSBI), Fat Boy (FLSTF & FLSTFI) and Fat Boy Lo (FLSTFB & FLSTFBI) came out with this size rear tire. There may be other models that I’m not aware of that came this rear tire. The Fat Boy & Fat Boy Lo are still in production with this 200mm rear tire as of 2014.
