Cb1100 wheels

Postby AshishNJ » Mon Apr 29, 2019 6:35 pm

I have set of cb1100 wheels . Rear is a 17 with 140 size tire and front is 18 with 110.
Can they work o CBx as direct swap ?

Kind of, but there are several things you'll need/want besides just the wheels. I'd look at upgrading the swingarm to the 1100F also, complete with the 1100 rear brake, torque arm and chain guard. You'll need to have a new sleeve machined for the swingarm, but that's it. It's a bolt-on otherwise. Forks can be done the same way, Pro-Link, US 1100F (with some mods for the bars and gauges) both work well. You'll get the upgraded brakes as well.

I've done several CBXs with a combination of these mods and they work really well. I have quite a few 1100F bits I might part with if you need them.

If you just want to swap the wheels and not go through the other mods, the brake rotors will not work on the CBX forks and calipers.

Here is what I have

Assuming I keep same forks in front but get 82 calipers and brakes , would these work? I understand for rear I will need swingarm swap since I need brakes and a 140 won’t fit in stock swingarm

Those wheels will work with the Pro-Link forks and your stock swingarm. You use the 1100F front axle, speedo drive and speedo cable. Use a 110/80-18 on the front. BUT - you'll need 900F caliper hangers and standard, 2-piston calipers, not the Pro-Link ones. That'll fix you up in the front.

The rear wheel will bolt on with proper spacers (sprocket side may need to be 1100F or CBX, can't remember which. Right side is the same as CBX. You will need the 1100F caliper hanger and caliper too (some others will work, not sure if Pro-Link hanger will). Stock swingarm will allow a 130/80-17, I think. Flatten your torque arm if not.

I think the CBX handles fine with the 18/17 combo and those tire sizes. Even better with the 1100F swingarm.

Oh, I've forgotten a lot. Now - if you want to use the 1100F wheel with the '79 forks, I think you have a spacer problem due to the narrower spacing of the forks than the 1100F or Pro-Link. I know a guy that did it years ago and can find out from him what he had to do, if you want. Or I can hunt out my parts and start fitting stuff until I find the right combo.
