Will R1150 Rocster Wheels fit my '98K1200RS
Thank you Motobiker for shooting me a reply,
Yes you are right on a path to follow.
The guy that had the cheap R1150R wheelset did not really know what would have been needed to do the swap. Or was hoping it would be easy. My thicker cast ABS2 ring would not have done very well on his wheels that are set up for the thinner stamped sensor ring, pedestals would have been too long I think. Even if I got the thinner ring to go on the 2003 iABS wheels I would have had alignment issues with my caliper, I believe.
I have had a blast just working on the bike over the last 3 weeks, I like the way the parts on these Beemers are machined as I am used to tractor parts.. err sorry Harley Davidson castings. After all items in contact with the 2004 fuel left in the bike were remediated/rebuilt she fired righ up and is purring like a kitten. Got a battery, some new tires, will hunt down some rims and will be breezin in Central Texas shortly. Best Regards To You, texaspete
