GL 1800 Front Rims 2006 - 2010 Interchangeable?

Postby dragon2000 » Sun Aug 11, 2013 8:09 am



I have a 2009 GL1800 which has the TPM System. I picked up a new 2009 rear complete with tire, rim and TPM Sensor at a good price from a bike that was being Trike'd. This way I have a spare to change when the need arises and do it in my garage.

I want to have a spare for the front however there aren't a lot of them out there complete. At the same time the cost of buying everything separate is a lot higher.

My question is and I posed this to a dealer and they could not tell me due to not having each year in stock is, for a 2006-08 are the front wheels the same as a 2009 - 10? This is to say will the TPM Sensor fit/function on an older Rim along with all of the other items (rotors, bearings, spacer, speedometer, etc.)?

Realizing I will never find a 2009-10 front rim complete at a good cost, the cost of new 2006-08 rim on its own is almost half the price of a 2009-10. I don't mind biting the bullet for the other items however hate paying full cost for an item when another model year will do the same.

Any info, advise would be appreciated.

You can find blowups and parts lists for both years here:

The axles are the same part number, so I see no reason you could not interchange the wheels. There may be a cosmetic difference, but I think no functional differences.

Your right Viking, the wheels are the same. The only exception is the price.

Once I receive the front wheel I will have the set and can get them chromed.

Thanks,
