Does anyone know if the rear rim from a VM2000 would work in a vn900 swingarm? Or any other 16" rim from a full size Kawi , or other brand motorcycle?

Now that is a great question because I was just thinking about that myself...I love everything about the bike except for the rear wheel, too small,too skinny and doesnt fit the rear fender , I would love to buy the mimic wheel but just to expensive at the moment

+1 on the 16" after waiting days for the dealer to get a 180/70-15 tube ordered and installed. No one in town had one. "Must be an odd size." "Only one manufacturer for them." "We don't stock anything under 16 inch." You would think the dealer would stock tubes for the bikes they sell.

So i guess no one has a VN2000 rim to measure up, i checked ronayers.com, and compared the VN2000 Fiche with the VN900 all the parts are similar with the exception of the shims.
Another question would be what the overall heighth is for the 16" with the 200 tire compared to the 15" rim with a 200 tire?
