Hey all!

I was wondering if anyone on here knows if a GSXR1100 rear wheel would also fit my 1991 GSX1100F Katana?

It comes with a puny 150 rear tire...I want a 180, and thus need a new wheel and tire in the rear - possibly even a new swing arm.

Does anyone on here know anything about the GSX1100F?


Thanks! :hello

Be safe!

Going from a 150 to a 180 would prob require some work.........I would put my money on not only a new wheel, but a new arm as well to accomodate it, might be tough.


Sounds like you've got some interesting projects going on :hello

Thanks for that....


Yeah..It will not be easy....then again....a 150 rear tire?? Nah..that's not me!

So I guess it will be the Swing-arm / Wheel combo....do you think the GSXR1100 arm might fit? The GSXR and the GSXF are said to be not that different....but I am not sure about this.

Cheers!

Sadly it's going to be hard tof ind out without either finding someone who's done it before, or having all of the stuff in front of you to measure.


You might have to extend the front sprocket out a bit to get it "straight" as well.


The manufactures will not release the info you are after, such as will it bolt up easily or not though.

Agreed...I tried Suzi and failed to get that Info.

I will keep hoping that someone on here might have some experience with this...

We will see what goes.... :hello Thank you for the reply!

Would also have to check if it would throw an offset for the sprocket alignment. Need to check the hubs and carriers.
