    2009 R1200GS Alloy Wheel Swap for Spokes

    Has anyone here swapped alloys for spokes on a GS? Have searched the MOA and ADVrider archives some but can't tell if this is a relatively simple maneuver or not. Are there issues around tubes, ABS, rotors, etc. that make this switch a hassle?

    Just the large expense of new rims and rotors for the front if you don't transfer them over.

    Just expensive. List for a pair is something like $2600. I don't think that includes front brake rotors which will add another $650. The wheels are cross spoke... no tubes needed.

    There are after market options. Example: http://www.woodyswheelworks.com/new_...le_wheels.html
