Wheel Swap

Post #1 by champab » Mon Mar 31, 2008 6:56 am

I have a 77 Gl1000 and would like to put Comstar wheels on it in place of spokes. Is this a direct bolt in or is it complicated?

The front wheel, brake rotors, and speedometer pickup need replaced. Brake calipers need shimmed to make up the difference in rotor offset.
