    Front rim swap Scarabeo 500 2004 GT to a 2005 Scarabeo 500 non GT

    Hello All,

    A simple question if I could. I am going swap out my front rim from my spare parts bike to my running bike. My running bike does not have ABS. My non running bike however is a ABS bike. If I swap out the front rim is the ABS sensor going to cause me a problem with the non ABS bike or in terms of clearance issues or ? Otherwise they look the same.

    I don't want to over think this but I believe all should be okay. Any thoughts ?

    The rim is the same on the ABS and Non-ABS bikes however some of the spacers are different along with the speedometer drive so those would have to be transferred along with the ABS wheel and sensor.

    Check out the parts diagram for your bike and take a good look at the differences between ABS and Non-ABS on page 51.

    Rockynv thank you again....that parts diagram was a great idea. I have downloaded the parts catalogue now. I have completed the swap and have no issues after the fact.
