Roadliner OEM wheels on Road Star?

Hey there,
A guy may want to buy my Roadliner wheels takeoffs to put on his brother's Road Star. Is this possible? If so, any mods required or just bolt on? Thanks for your help.

I.m not sure, but I think that mods are required. But everything is possible and because its Yamaha to Yamaha the mods will be minor. Essential is the diameter off the axel,s. Because otherwise you need a strange size of bearings.

I put Suzuki wheels in a Roadstar. Customer wanted three spoke aluminium wheels and a 240 rear tire in his Roadstar.
These are the original wheels.

And these were the modified wheels.
Front.

And rear.

Modified front hub.

And the rear hub.

So I say, nothing is impossible.

the bearing/axle numbers look the same so it should swap out

dumb bikers don't get to be old bikers
