1000 wheels on a 650

Will the new 10 spoke 1000 wheels fit a 2013 650?

Until somebody gets the new wheels and measures them, I don't think we will know. Historically, the 1000 has had a bigger diameter front axle than the 650 and that is likely to continue to be the case.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

My best guess would be "no". With the all new suspension there is likely a different spacing between fork tubes. As well as different axle diameters like before. Not to say it cannot be done. If there is one thing I simply do not care for on a V Strom, it is the weak 3 spoke wheel design. I like the looks of the '14 Vee wheels!

I love everything about my 13 650 except the ugly 3 spoke wheels. I have seen a thread about a true spoke option but lots of $$$$$. The 10 spoke 1000 wheel would be a huge improvement

I can't imagine that the factory spoke wheels would be any cheaper than what Pro Cycle is selling. Pricing begins at $1600 for a complete set.

I'd love to do this, but it just doesn't make financial sense for me.

I was not aware anyone was selling the spoke wheels complete. Lots of $$$ but I do love wire wheels.

That's funny. Back in the 1980's a big seller was cast wheels to replace stock spoked wheels.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.

But they weren't "Adventure" bikes then.
