Front wheel question.
Hi all,

I am looking to buy a front wheel for my 13 CB1100. I found a front wheel on Ebay for $250; however, its for a 2014 CB1100. Are they the same size and model? Any differences? Huh

Thanks

I think it's just the color.

RE: Front wheel question.
to my knowledge they are the same, i.e. a straight swap is possible between the two models. Might be a good idea to wait for the more 'clued up' experts to wade in and give some advice before you take the plunge and buy that wheel.

Straight swap would be nice, specially at $250.

Thanks!!

RE: Front wheel question.
I believe, for US bikes, the ‘13 and “14 front wheels are functionally equivalent, but cosmetically different. Note, from Randy’s links, slightly different part numbers.

I’m sure my ‘13 wheels are mostly gloss black, but with a good bit of silver on the outer part of rims. I think the ‘14 (base model) rims are all black, aren’t they?

Also, more of a matte black finish on the ‘14 wheels, vs. the gloss black used on our ‘13s, if I’m not mistaken. Sill, all cosmetics.

No — same size, but different model. The '13 wheel is a black mag with a polished silver rim. The '14 is all black.

2013 CB1100: Placed deposit on Nov. 12, 2012; Received delivery on April 5, 2013.

I played it safe and bought the 13 model to make sure the colors match.

Thanks for the reply.
