Man...my wheel swap is just not happening...Nothing I hate more than 2 different wheels on a bike.

Now I need a 81-84 KZ1100 or 84-85 ZN1100 swing arm, driveshaft and diff...

maybe even a KZ wheel. I did get a KZ wheel...but its not very nice..

Oh yeah...I dont like to spend much money:confused:

If you have anything let me know.

Thanks

Have you checked Spectre wheels? They are shaftys too. No idea if they fit though.

So I did get that 83 750 wheel...it fits, but not perfect.

Someone told me that jap bikes were NOT like dealing with american cars...stuff just doesnt interchange.

the brake rotor is about 3 mm too far to the outside...I just need to press the spacer out of the caliper bracket and turn it around...then it will bolt back up.....I hope.

Well, its done and it worked out.

The caliper mount needed the bushing pressed out and turned backwards. (bushing is actually a wheel spacer also)

The 83 rotor needed flipped over...one side has a step in it the other is flat. This and the caliper spacer put everything in proper alignment.

I can now rest easy that I have matching wheels...man, I hated that.

No pics yet...

I also changed the tire myself...if any one is afraid of that....dont be..
