Welcome. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I would appreciate the opportunity to help with your question today.

the wheel and tire are a direct swap. you will have to turn the tire around due to the XL brake rotor being on the left and the pulley on the right, so the drive direction is reversed.

the pulley is not a direct swap. the 91 XL used a 61T pulley. the '97 Fatboy has a 70T.

let me know if you need more help.
