Cool

I really like the Sabre; was going to buy a new one this past summer until ........ my Craigslist surfing uncovered a helluva deal on a used 2010 Fury with 400 miles!!! Actually, I found the Sabre to be a little more comfortable than the Fury.

Oh well ..... as Mick said "you can't always get what you want but then sometimes, you get what you need".

I was planning on pulling my Fury's side covers off and painting them black, but if the Saber's side covers are already color matched, they fit the Fury (and they're cheap enough) it might make sense to swap them like Clint is thinking on the tires.

Clint, I'll try to stop by my local dealer on the way home and ask.
They fit but they retail for about $94 EACH.

The new sabre is a hell of a nice bike my 2nd choice before the fury- Enjoy & welcome to the forum!

RSS, thanks...I did just that today and they do fit.

Clueless...I found that out too. I told him to order them and when he told me the price, I went to an auto store for some paint...Ha!

Clint - my local dealer feels that the larger Fury tire will transfer to the Sabre without a problem. However, he was saying that from eyeballing it, not actually trying it on. I guess that leaves you right where you were, sorry I couldn't get more info for you. Either way, good luck!

They both use the same axle, brake caliper, caliper mount, rotor and fender, should be a simple bolt on, just need new spacers. The wheel is only $575, plus chrome. (HDL price http://www.hdlparts.com/fiche_section_detail.asp )

My plans were to send my stock wheel off to kosman, but I think for the money it would be easier to just buy a stock fury rear wheel. I think my Sabre rear wheel is 5" or 5.5" wide, so I think that would help fill the fender a bit. Will do a fat tire kit one day, but I need to get some power out of this thing first. I'll try to post pictures when I find my camera.

Clueless do you have both the Sabre & Fury?? If you do you would be doing a lot of sabre guys (and myself) if you could try your fury rear wheel figment to the Sabre.

I have an Interstate, traded the Fury for it last Dec. measuring the Interstate frame, the Fury wheel tire will not fit , there is only about 8mm clearance on the right side, and 2x that on the left.

I have a Fury and a Sabre. The Fury rear wheel WILL NOT fit on a Sabre.

The Sabre swingarm does not allow clearance for the tire on the right side. You would have to put a Fury swingarm on a Sabre which nobody has ever done.

86 Intruder; 79 XS650; 11 Fury #776 Freedom is life behind bars.
