GL 1500 : second hand front brake disc

Hi everybody,

I have a 1996 GL 1500. My left side front brake disc (the one which operates with the rear brake disc) is approaching its wear limit.

I found on the net, here in France, an original Honda front brake disc which seems to be in state close to new (no sign of wear) and at a good price.

The only problem is that it is a right side front brake disc.

Comparing my two front brake disc, I see absolutely no differences between them two.

So do you think there could any problem mounting a right side front brake disc on the opposite side ?

Moreover, it seems to me that aftermarket front brake discs (for the GL 1500 or other bikes) are sold with no consideration for their side.

Thanks a lot in advance for your advices.

Good day to you all.
