R1100S wheels on an R1100GS (98)?

Hi all, i'd like to fit a set of alloys to my GS and have heard on forums that this is possible.

Any advice or tips from anyone who has fitted a set would be appreciated.

Isn't the rear wheel from the S wider than the stock wheel on the GS? Not sure if that one will fit. Perhaps from an R or RS instead??

The stock R1100S rear tire is 170 width vs the GS's 150, and there is an optional wider wheel to fit a 180 series on the S. R1100RSs and RTs use a 160 width tire. All of them use 120 width fronts.

Get the speedo drive and rear wheel bolts for this to bolt up. The speedo drive isn't just needed for the correct speed, the spacing on the axle and hub is different and the correct speedo drive will let it bolt up without an extra spacer.

also check to make sure the wheels you get have the same style of abs ring (cast vs pressed) if you have abs and want it to work. Even then you might need some maching to make the abs rings work. The rotors may need to be swapped from your gs to the new wheel also, but the bolt spacing is the same. I did all of this on my 1150 (with non-servo brakes), but have opted to run without abs until I can get the carriers milled down 5mm for the cast abs ring. The ukgser.com site has way more info on this swap than here. They like their road wheels across the pond.
