I have ruined the front wheel on my 2003 1800A. Huge dent, but still held air and ran true (took 15,000 miles to wear out the tire!) I did buy a replacement as a spare but now that the tire on the dented rim is spent I took the rim in to have it repaired which failed (cracked while tring to repair).

The first replacement wheel I ordered is HDL part #44650-MCA-A000 (2001-2005 wheel) for $345.27. Now I have gotten used to having a full set of extra wheels mounted and ready to go (rear wheels are CHEAP due to trikeing). Getting ready to order another one I see that the wheel for 2006-2009 is part #44650-MCA A060 at $284.30.

I've heard they're interchangeable. Anyone know?

I'm using the chrome wheels from my 04 on my 07.

Think they changed the wheels on the 09 when they added air pressure monitors and a new valve stem.

2005 using 2007 Front Wheel

I ordered a spare 2007 wheel from HDL a couple months ago. It is the same rim, comes with bearings, all you need to do is swap the rotors when you change your wheel. They can't explain the difference in cost?????
