changing wheels if can do

Post by notsobright » Wed Jul 06, 2016 9:04 pm

Ok ya all has anyone out there put a 1983 front wheel from a 1100a onto a 1982 1100a? I like the look of the 83 wheel but the 83's had antidive on the forks. If anybody has done this can I do by just changing wheel and rotors or do I have to change forks also.
Hope you can help. just thinking about it .

You can just bolt them on the 82. Use the 82 rotors though. This is a popular swap and is easy to do.may as well install new bearings before you swap the rims, bearings are cheap enough. 8-)
