GL1500 Rear Wheel Width.

Hello. I'm trying to find out the rear Wheel width is on the GL1500. (Inside bead to inside bead.
A pic with a tape measure would be the bomb.



Can anyone help?


TIA.

Thanks for the reply.
The reason for my question is, for my 1200 SEI.


I'm considering installing a 1500 drive/caliper bracket,wheel, so I can run a runflat on the SEi.


after I wear out the new tire on the bike.

I didn't find any pictures that would help you, , but the rear rim tire width is "listed" at 3.5" at the surface where the tire "bead" is located. If I find anything more, I'll let you know.

Over several years, I accumulated two complete take off sets of parts from triked 1500s to do this, but I was gonna probably use Avon rear tire 150/80-16 but then I read / collected info on using General Altimax 195-55-R16. My reason for wanting to do the wheel/brake rotor/FD swap was to get better braking due to larger rotor and better bearing set up in the 1500 rear wheel.

I sold my bike, but I had saved pics of the tire in place. Not my bike, but is a 1200.

Thank you to both of you.



That is the info I was looking for.


Crystalpistol. I am of the same reasoning, behind seeking this information.


I also couldn't find a Run Flat available for a 1200 15" wheel.



I like the drilled 1500 Rotor as well as it being larger. (I have a few rotor options to choose from as well)
