Rims and tires must be true before checking wheel alignment, as outlined in previous paragraphs.

Front and rear wheels should be in perfect alignment. This can be checked on the motorcycle with a straight wooden board or length of string by placing against rear tire side-wall as far up toward axles as possible. Straightedge should be parallel to tires (see Figure 2-28). On 1970 and later FL models, 5.1 Ox 16 size front tire should be offset 3/16 in. to right of rear tire. Adjust rear wheel in axle clips as necessary to correct misalignment.
