Rear wheel replacement cross reference

I have a 2008 model K1200LT with a small crack in the rear wheel. Currently the crack is not propagating and no air is leaking out of the tire. However, I do want to replace it before heading to Des Moines this summer. I have looked online and seen replacement wheels from 2000 and 2003 machines at reasonable prices. Will they fit my bike? I don't want to purchase a wheel that will not fit my bike.


My question is what other model year rear wheels are interchangeable with the 2008 model? Is there a cross reference document on the site that will guide me in purchasing a replacement.

thanks,

Alex

MAX BMW online parts shows that the rear wheel is the same 99-09 so you would be safe with any year for that. Front is different however due to the changes from ABS-II to I-ABS systems.

Re: Rear wheel replacement cross reference

As Gordon said, any K12LT rear rim should work.

You can also look at rear rims from the 95-04 K12RS bikes.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Are the K-RS wheels also 5 bolt? I know that there is a 4 bolt wheel but don't know what model/year then came on.

Re: Rear wheel replacement cross reference

If you go to MAX BMW parts fiche:
https://shop.maxbmw.com/fiche/PartsFiche.aspx
Find your specific bike and then the wheel part number.
Take that part number and put it into the MAX search engine:
https://shop.maxbmw.com/fiche/PartsSearch.aspx
I will come up with all the bikes that that part number is used.
This technique works for any part.
After that EBay is your friend.
Edit: any good alloy wheel repair shop in your town, can fix your rim no problem.
Here is a high end one.

Google Morristown wheel repair and pick.

I change your tires $50, you buy them on the web.

Yes, same basic Flying Brick drivetrain as the LT, so same part # for the rear rim.

The similar 4 bolt wheel was used on some R bikes (R1100/R1150, I think).

Re: Rear wheel replacement cross reference

Thanks to all who replied to my post.

I got the part number and cross reference information from the MAX BMW website. I also found an alloy wheel repair specialist within an hours drive. So I should be able to replace or repair at a reasonable cost and ride worry free on my LT.


thanks,

Alex

Re: Rear wheel replacement cross reference

Well the alloy wheel repair company contacted me and said they will not repair a motorcycle wheel; too much liability. So I got on ebay and found one from a 2002 LT for $95 shipping included. I purchased it and it should arrive before April 30.
