I need a new front tire on my scoot before I do much riding this spring.
My bro-in-law offered me the new (maybe 50 miles on it) front tire off his Magna65 if it fits.
(His son dumped the bike and bent the frame just after putting the new tire on.
Bad news is the front tire is one inch shorter, a 110/90 -18.
My question is this, does anyone know if the Honda Magna wheel takes the same size axle/bushings/spacers etc. as the vn750.
What about the disc brake rotor and calipers? Will they mate up properly?
Also I wonder how the Vulcan will handle with this shorter tire on the front.
I know the speedo will be even less accurate (ie. read even faster than stock).
Is this swap a wise/safe idea, or something I should avoid?
What say you old MC hot rodders?
Has anyone tried something like this before?
Ultimately I will have to drive 30 miles out there and compare the two wheels I guess.
