Looks like there is a lot of space between the fenders, belt guards and such? All the tire combo deals list 130 front 140 rear ?

It's do-able. That equates to only an extra 5mm wider per side.
Measure from the belt to the sidewall, if more than 5mm the tire will fit.

Usual rule of thumb is you can go up one size from stock. I'm sure there are exceptions but I've yet to run into a problem with this.

If any of the measurements are even close, I would get someone else to measure while you sit on the bike, upright with your feet on the floor. You might notice less clearance on the belt guard, or belt to sidewall measurement. On the FLH you need to remove the lower belt guard to get the 140/85 to fit.

Or, you weren't quite in deep enough. That would depend on what measurements you got, too much room or not enough! LOL
