Default Rear Wheel mounting question

So I picked up a set of Chrome wheels for my 07 Kingpin with the 100 Engine. Ad said fits 04-08 Kingpin. The only problem is that the wheels are apparently from the older model with the 92 engine and have smaller stud holes to mount the drive pulley. Not sure where to go with it at this point. Should I think about getting adapter studs to go from the smaller to larger diameter or how bad of an idea is that. My local dealer said they wouldn't do it on account of the possibility of breaking the smaller studs with the bigger engine mine has. Has anyone done this before and what's your thought. We got the front mounted with no problem and it really looks good, I was really looking forward to getting the back on.
I didn't contact the seller yet on ebay but they did say they were returnable.

Solution one is to return them. Too risky to attempt to make it fit the wrong pulley. Solution two is find the pulley that fits. Your choice.

Well the 04 Kingpin pulley is 64 Tooth and the 07 is 70 Tooth. I know the smaller tooth will give me a bit more torque and possibly let me get into 6th a little more. Just wondering if I need to worry about the set up with the 100 Engine?

Also looks like the belt and front sprockets are different from the 07 to 04 models so not sure if my 07 Belt will be OK if I went with the smaller Rear Sprocket

for all the changes you would have to do you should return the rear wheel.
It will cost you a lot to change the belt and pulleys

The 64 tooth will not give you more torque it will give you less torque.

As Joe said; you have it backwards on the torque. If it were me I'd just return it but if it was advertised to fit your bike but doesn't; the seller should pay all shipping costs. It ain't cheap to ship wheels these days.

You might see about just returning the rear wheel and keeping the front one then look for one to match but I don't know if they make them. Probably best to return both wheels at his expense plus whatever he charged to ship them to you in the first place. That may not be enforceable via ebay but it should be.

With a 64 tooth rear pulley you would have to be going 20 mph to let the clutch all the way out. Believe me, you won't like it. Plus the belt might not work.

You could have a machine shop drill the wheel and install the larger studs.

Oh, and changing the gear ratio in the final drive does nothing for the torque, + or - , it is only a change in overall gear ratio. The engine's torque curve will not change. I have a 2 teeth smaller front pulley (making the gearing 7% shorter). On a dyno it shows LESS power and the shape of the torque curve is exactly the same. The difference is a mechanical advantage in reving quicker through the gears... so if you changed nothing else, instead of 70 mph in 2nd gear it would only reach 65 mph before it hit the rev limiter...

Putting a 64 on in place of a 70 at the rear wheel would be the close to same as 2 teeth larger front pulley.

The ebay seller is also a chrome shop so I'm think wheat I'm going to do is to see if they can chrome my factory rear wheel and return the other one. And maybe chrome the rear pulley too. I'll let you know how I make out. Thanks everyone.

ask them to tape off the pulley grooves. I have read where chrome can cut up the belt
