« on: July 27, 2019, 07:28:43 PM »
Hi all,

Will 2007 K1200GT rear wheel (17″ x 5.50″) fit 1990 K75T?

Thank you.

Thank you johnny.

So if I am understanding correctly easiest wider wheel to fit on K75 would be 3 spoke 4.5x18?

greetings...

the k75 hub is 4 lug bolts and 1 center bolt...

the 1200 hub is 5 lug bolts and 0 center bolt...

so you would have to fabricate an adapter... before making an adapter put a measuring take acrosst the swing arm at the leading edge of the rear tior... that will tell you how wide a tior you can run without machining a new swing arm...

so... measure that and report back here...

Thousands of insufferable IT geeks have made it possible to understand what an oilhead is simply by typing the word oilhead into Google's search window of your device's web browser. Don't miss the opportunity.
