25mm Axles on 1" bike
Here's the deal. I just bought a 2007 Street Bob that I would like to mount 2014+ Low Rider dual disc mags on. The guy who owned the bike before me let his dogs **** on the rims and they've rusted through. Couple this with how much I hate cleaning laced wheels, mags make a lot of sense for me.
I've got the front end figured out, thanks in part to this thread:
It'd be easy enough to just use the '14 25mm Axle, bearings, spacers, wheel, and lower tubes for the front; direct bolt on. Easy.
What I need help on is the rear. I can't remember the exact nomenclature, but the rear axle adjusters that go inside the swingarm are different PNs from 2007 to 2014, and the rear brake calipers are different. If I wanted to avoid machining hubs for the wider 1" bearings and machining different spacers by just running a 25mm Axle, would I need to change the adjusters and caliper? Or can I get away with those bits of 1" hardware?
If anyone has any experience with this swap, that'd be much appreciated.
