I looked and couldn't find the answer to both my questions so i figured i would just post a question.
1. The arnott air suspension just does the rear correct? wondering if that affected the bikes handleing or overall look
2. I saw the post low loud nasty bike and i love the muscle wheels, i looked into getting new wheels for my 08 dx but they are like 3-4k for aftermarket rim pairs, but fact muscle wheels i love. I saw that that member got them from a dealer so i called my local dealer and asked for a quote, they told me the muscle and the nrs are very different and they would need a list of the parts that i would need to switch them such as bearings, or brake rotors? i pm'd the person with the muscle wheels but i see he sold the bike and they never responded so i was wondering if anyone knew the parts i would need.

I am a ford master tech so to me a new wheel would just have to be the same bolt pattern and it can just bolt on, brand new to bikes so bearings and sleeves are new to me,

thanks for any help

VRSCF wheel hardware
44553-06A rotors x 2: $160
3762M screws (shoulder bolts) x 10: $20
6966M spring washers x 10: $20
You're right about the ABS vs. non ABS bearings. The right side bearing doesn't need to be changed (unless you don't trust its age) but the left side is different (ABS left bearing is HD part # 9252, non-ABS and ABS right bearing is part # 9276).

If you heat the wheel hub without heating the bearing you might be able to pull it without damage but the normal blind bearing puller applies a side load to the rollers and outer race that's likely to cause bearing damage. Because of this wheel bearings are normally not reused after removal.

If rotors weren't included you'll need the VRSCF rotors (44553-06A x 2) plus the screws (3762M x 10) and washers (6966M x10) also.

Your NRS rotors and pulley will work. Buy the wheels from Zanottis or Hales or Chicago HD, along with new bearings and spacer kit. While you are at it, switch to Avon tires. Stick better. Straight bolt up mod. Joe
