Anyone knows which year Goldwing double piston calipers bolts on late model CBX forks with stock G W calipers ? :think:

JP:
I think '82 for sure, '83 and maybe more had vented discs similar to the CBX - calipers too wide for stock CBX rotors. The entire caliper/disc/hanger combo from '82 will work (even the entire wheel - it was 2.5x18 reversed/black Comstar).

It depends on the model GL. Not all had vented rotors. There was a difference between regular GL, Aspencade and Interstate.

Thank you both. Dave : I have seen pics of the 82 GW calipers and it "looks" more suitable than the other years, so I'll pursue that route.
See you guys soon !!!
