Hello again....
a friend is replacing the flywheel washers on 2 good sets of UL flywheels....
the washers that we got as stock replacement turn freely in both sets.....
when measuring the old washers outer diameter ,all were between 53.20-25 mm outer diameter...(2.0944-0964 inch)
the replacement washers are 52.90mm ,2.0826inch.....
called the company that sells them and was told this is all they have,
has any one got a new or nos oem washer to measure ,just to check what the stock really is.....
would very much appreciate it,thank you for your time.........

The measurement you have from the original washers is correct. Eastern MC Parts makes washers with the correct outer diameter but the ID is big. I don't think that is a problem, later Harley wheels did not extend the taper into the washer area and just used the od for interference without trouble. Quality control has been a little lax lately at Eastern so if your friend has a dealer order them I suggest he gets a couple of extras.
