    Leg change

    My neighbor is putting three-quarter inch being the lower legs on his 07 softail now we have a 1 inch bearing inside the original hub . Is there a kit so we can use a three-quarter inch axle which would fit into the holes in the lower legs but still use the 1 inch Bearing y we did buy an adapter spacer that go into the 1 in bearing ,but is there a kit thatís the spacers between the leg and the wheel is there a kit that can be bought to space wheel in correct alignment break rider to caliper itís out there let me know thanks

    You talking about the reducer kits to use a 3/4” axle in a 1” bearing? https://www.kandgcycles.com/wheel-be...CABEgKYt_D_BwE

    Yes sir .local dealer had no item said to him to make at machine shop
    And he needs left and right spacers between legs to get correct alignment so rotor fits in caliper correctly and these reducers too tx ....
    We noticed even with the original tire rim like you’ve been writing it it’s a 2007 softail the tire really doesn’t fit equally between the legs there’s probably three eights of an inch more between the tire and the leg on the left side than the right side I think that’s how it was we measured it . Does that seem correct now this is originally like I said with the original 1 inch hub 1 inch axle and original friend and the rotor fit in the correct spot on the caliper though. And another question I think touring bikes went from the three-quarter to the 1 inch axle in 01 but I don’t know when the softails changed I’ve heard different answers one was 2006. I also was thinking could we not use stock spacers from a prior or the year before it changed to 1 inch since he’s using the three-quarter axles my thoughts that the spacing itself dimension wise has not changed they look like it to be just bored larger holes where the axles go. Thanks
