Default WEE front wheel swap

pardon my laziness, but... 501 pages of threads are overwhelming

can anyone, definitively, tell me if the front wheel from an '07 VEE will swap onto an '05 WEE?

the casting marks and cast in dimensions are the same

if so, what simple parts differences do i need to be aware of?

are the rotors/rotor mounts the same?

they sure measure close(yardstick close)

are the axle diameters different?

thanks, up front

sw

Not the same, from what I read on Vstrom International forum.......you must make an entire swap over: forks, axles, spacers, etc.......sorry.

Axle diameters and bearings are different for one thing.

I know the brake rotors are different on the '07 and later Wees. I'd have to check part numbers on the earlier ones.
