Swapping Rims

Post by parvo101 » Sun Sep 08, 2013 12:12 am

Is it possible to change the swingarm on a 81 gl1100 with the swingarm from a 82 gl1100. Then put a 82 front rim on a set of 81 forks. I know it will change rpm's.

seems to me `81 thru `83`s are the same frame/swingarm, just change the wheels. don`t know about the front fork width.
