I have not worked this out yet, We have the new bike in the shop torn down developing mounting hardware, steering modifications as well as a trailer hitch. More then likley we will be going with a 15 inch wheel to interchange with the sidecar but might try and fit an automotive tire to the stock rim depending on what is out there.
The new bike will be our demo bike with a lot of new stuff on it at the National BMW rally.

Your build will be interesting to follow.

We thank you for your reply

These new 2013 GSW are really a completely new design, but for a few items.

A demo ride only wets one's interest to learn more.

The dealer tells me that other then nuts and bolts, the only part that interchanges with the last R1200GS is the gas cap.
