What??????? A vtx 1300 mag rim on a 1800 spoke rim.

Post  speedman on Mon Jul 16, 2012 11:51 pm

I was told they do not match by every contact I could find ...
Well I took a chance on ordering a vtx 1300 c mag rim to replace the spoke on my 1800 r trying to stay with the 15 inch and the 2 rims are a direct matc to go darkside.
So if you have a 1800 spoke you can go with the 1300 mag to be a direct fit just switch the rotors. The spoke is a bit wider but the spacers are the excact same bolt patern are the same, I will start making the switch in the morning with a 265 60 r 15 rear. Thank you for all your support and I hope this helps anyone who wants to run 15 inch wheel on there 1800 r spoke thumbup

Since the rear drives interchange easily (Foots Mod). No reason the wheels wouldn't interchange too.
Congrats! thumbup

1300c rim replacement on a 1800 R spoke rear

Post  speedman on Wed Jul 18, 2012 3:17 pm

I just completed the switch to darkside on the vtx 1800 with a 1300c mag wheel,
Is it different ? Yes.. It seems to ride softer. breaking is much better,
Is it a little mushy in the turns at a high speed on the gas? yes. Is it manageable? yes.
Would I go darkside on a rocket bike no.
will my friends go darkside? They all called me crazy while I was making the switch but after a ride around they are thinking I am on to somthing better.
Am I going to go back to mc tire no
I would like to thank riding on the darkside for all the input . with out you guys I would never know.

I search everywhere even the dark side and no one had a answer i check with rim guys and they told me that the 1300 mag was a different rotor bolt pattern to the 1800 r s caled custom shops from calif to fl. and got the same answer no wont work.
To tell you the truth I was really bumbed out because I had allready ordered the rim off ebay and there were no returns.
but to my suprise the 1300 c mag was a direct fit for the 1800 spoke rim except the rotor. thumbup

So, did you use your rotor off the 1800 Spoke on the 1300 rim?
