Thread: R1200RT Rear Wheel Interchangeability

    R1200RT Rear Wheel Interchangeability

    Will an R1200RT rear wheel from a 2017 fit a 2007?

    What years are interchangeable?

    Color matching or appearance features that don't affect fit or function are not important.

    Does anyone in or near southern MN have a source to buy or borrow a wheel that will fit a 2007.

    Reason for the question is I'm helping an Iron Butt competitor with bike prep and it is good to have a spare wheel with a fresh tire at hand in case tire wear is an issue during the event.

    For the wethead R1200RT there is a feller that goes by Boxflyer that has produced many excellent YouTube videos about this bike. His channel is here -

    In the video below he talks about alternate wheels for the wethead R1200RT, including small(ish) modifications needed for certain wheels -
