I’ve been curious about adapting HD Rims to my warrior. I just wanted some insight on what does this kind of mod entail. Now I’ve searched and have found several posts on the subject. The problem is searching within the past posts, there are links to take you to the info within the forum but they are null. I found several links ArizonaWarrior posted on the subject several years back but when I click on them, it takes me to a page that says “Oops, the page you’re looking for has been removed.” There are other links posted by other users but I was just using Arizona as an example. This is the only reason why I’m asking for info on adapting to HD wheels. Thank you in advance for any assistance.

You will have to come up with the right bearings for the warrior axle, 20mm i think it is and some wheel spacers. I got my harley rims from RC components and they came with the bearings. I had to make my own wheel spacers but easy to do.

A friend uses a wheel of HD rocker. For a season, his mileage is ridiculous, 1-2 thousand kilometers. But with the wheel bearings he already has many problems. In rocker's wheel there are only 2 bearings, while in the warrior’s wheel there are 5 of them. The simplest belt tightness disables the bearing on the opposite side of wheel. And he cannot supply more bearings - the wheel is hollow, even the hub.

Sounds like your friend should have a precision hollow spacer machined between the 2-ball brg's so that the inner races are preloaded properly :oops:

Since he adapted the wheel was there a spacer in between the bearings if so why not make the spacer smaller in the wheel and add another bearing if that is the problem. Also was that a sealed bearing?

Edit: You answered a couple of seconds right before me LOL.

Use vrod rims. Find night rod special or muscle. They are 19x3.5 front and 18x8 rear.

These have 2 big bearings + cushion drive and Pulley with bearing. Same kind like warrior wheels. Works perfect.

Plus front wheel is almost bolt on with dual brake discs.

Rear need some work but its not that bad.

Right. At first it was not there and I told him that it was necessary to make it. After he added this element to the wheel, his bearings began to work decently longer. Not like before, when for 10-50 kilometers he carried them to pieces)))

But the fact: pulling the belt strictly according to the manual, the bearings are enough for him for a maximum of one motorcycle season. And in his case it is less than 1 thousand kilometers ...

Yes, it was a sealed bearing. And no, adding bearings will not work, the wheel hub is hollow between the bearing seats.

Maybe machine the hub to accept a larger bearing or 2 bearings. It is just a wheel hub on a motorcycle.
