Question Rear wheel

Hello,as a noob to this forum,I`d like some advice on fitting a rear wheel from a BMW 17X5.00 to my cafed K100.Bearing in mind the 1150 wheel is a differant fitment to the standard crappy wheel.I.E the standard wheel fits directly to the bevel box,where as the 1150 wheel does not,as it fits to a bevel box flange,which fits on to the bevel drive.The k 100 bevel box is differant to the 1150 box,any ideas please.Thanks.

Default Guess?

If one you want fits with a flange (snigger). Seems like an adaptor plate would be way forwards.

Only a guess never done it like.

Can't you find some bmw nut that has on a bm forum. Some nutter must of fightered one

From what I've seen, the arms are pretty much interchangeable.

Or at least I've seen Airhead frames with what were claimed to be both K and 1150 arms in them.

So, it seems not unreasonable to assume that an 1150 arm would fit the K frame.

The other thing is that an 1150 arm willl put the wheel on the centre line of the bike, whereas if you cobbled it on to the existing one, I think you'd find that the wheel was offset to one side quite a lot...

But, that's all speculation from stuff I've read recently and not necessarily true....

depends on what suspension you are using, monolever or paralever. easiest way would be to use the corresponding swingarm and bevel box for the wheel you want to use.
