Has anyone swapped the wheels from the K11RS onto the K11LT?
The choice of tyres for the LT is poor and I wondered if it had any adverse effects on handling.
I've got a pair of RS wheels but thought I'd ask incase someone's tried it and it's no good, saving me the trouble of two wheel swaps. Very Happy

Ran them for years, the only bug bear is getting the back wheel out you have to get the caliper and disc of before the wheel will come out.

Might be worth it.
How come the RS rear wheel comes straight out? I had a K100RS 16v and didn't need dismantling.

Stuffed if I know I thought they were all the same. Mine was OK before I put the standard exhaust on, had a staintune from a K1008v before that.

Or the exhaust.

I run an RS rear on my LT and since it's got a two part Staintune I just pull the can to get the rear off.
