R1100 front wheel re build,,, OEM 19'' to 21''

The question really is: using the cross lace pattern I would be tempted to use the HP2 oem spokes BUT, will they fit nicely to the original R1100GS hub????

IS the OEM HP2 hub the same diameter as the R1100GS so that I could just use HP2 spokes of the same as R1100GS lenght and have a 21" wheel?

IF not - whan lenght of spoke should I look for?

any input on this will be appreciated.

Hallo math as,,

HP-2 Stainless spokes an new nipples and grub screws shoul work just fine using the 21'' R 100 GS/PD alloy rim.... FYI !!!HP-2 21" front rims are simply anodized R100 GS/PD rims...good luck with re-building the X-laced rims..holler if ya run into trouble
