I recently tore down the rear section on my 2000 fatboy. All that is there is softail swing arm, belt and the two frame horns that are covered by the chrome fender struts when attached. I had a new tire mounted on the stock wheel and set out to solve a problem. I noticed last year that the rear tire was only about one quarter inch from the fender on the left side and about a good half inch or more on the right side. I thought during this tear down I could shim the struts maybe and fix this problem, WRONG. When I mounted the rear tire in position, it is still to the left of the welded on rear cast heavy frame horns. I guess it came from the factory this way. It appears the only fix is to shift everything to the right about three sixteenths of an inch. But the brake caliper cannot be moved, thus the brake disk cannot be moved. Cure seems to be to machine thee sixteenths off the right side of the factory wheel to keep caliper and disk in alignment, reduce right spacer by three sixteenths, add three sixteenths to the left spacer and space the drive pulley three sixteenths to left to maintain correct alignment with drive pulley. This just seems to be a tremendous amount of work to solve this problem. Has anyone else had or fixed this problem by an easier method? The rear disk and pulley seem to be spaced the same amount ( equal on both sides) on the factory wheel. I thought I would re-assemble the thing as is and not worry about it but I don't like knowing its off and you can't put a bungie cord hook on the left side because it will rub into tire. Can anyone offer any help?
