Just had my forks re-done by a friend who works on harleys. As we finished up, I decided to go no-front fender, atleast until I cant paint it since it is a bit beat up. Once the wheel was on, we noticed there is a big difference between the space in between the tire/wheel, and the two forks. The tire almost rubs up on the left fork, while the right side has a huge gap. (right fork being the one with the brake) At first we thought bent wheel, but it seems to turn straight, just off.

Bad wheel bearings? Bent wheel? Any ideas?

thanks.

Left and right on a bike is referred to as your sitting on it.



Did you put the spacer back in on the right side? (non brake side)It goes into the wheel first before you slide the axle in.

Also make sure the speedometer drive is lined up with the notch on the fork body.

As Boulder says.It would be dangerous to ride the bike without the fender or a solid brace in place of it.The even Plastic fender versions of these bikes have an Arched substantial metal brace underneath them.
