Hi, everyone!

I'd like to swap the rear wheel on my 2006 VN900 Classic, which comes originally with a 15" rear wheel for a 16" rear wheel from a Vulcan 1500. Does anyone know if this is possible?

- Thanks in advance!

Rear wheel from a 900 Custom is a direct swap To the Classic. Spacers and all. It’s wider than the spoke wheel. This extra width let’s you put on a number of different tubeless tires. As far as one from a 1500, maybe some fellow forum member will elaborate.

Thank you! @ Tourer; yeah, the reason I want the wheel from the 1500 is because it's bigger and wider, (16" x 3.5") and it has the classic look of the spokes. Like you said, I can put on classic style tires on it, which are tubed.
