View Full Version : xs650 mag wheel axle?

03-29-2016, 8:25 AM
hey guys hoping you can enlighten me..this is my first build-not a mechanic-that being said my question is ...I bought a mag rim ( yamaha xs650) front rim. My plan was to also do a springer front end on it..frame will have 1 in. HD style neck..cast rim uses a 17mm. axle, springer uses a 20mm. or 3/4 axle (basically the same?) I was thinking I could just change bearing?? is this feasable ? I would also like to run a front brake without spending a fortune and buying another rim. I have looked around and I haven't seen the mag wheel on a springer, any suggestions or info would be greatly appreciated.Thanks
