    I'm looking at getting the 18" rear from a seca on my Maxim. Is there anything else I'm going to need to grab? Will the pumpkin match up? Brake drum?

    yes you will get lower rpm at crusing speed slightly higher top end.



    120/90 18 is stock seca you may bee able to go to a wider tire

    Re: Highway cruising speed yes, about 4.9% lower RPM for stock size 120/90/18"
    If you opt for a 130/90/18" it would be about 7.37% lower RPM.

    Hi-jac
    I went to the moto-salvage yard today. $10.00 bought me a 16 x 3.00 rear wheel, swirl pattern and six bolt disc brake rotor compatible.
    Bolts are 8m x 1.25 pitch I think? I'd like to put a modern rotor on if I can find one that will match the bolt circle?
    Cheers, 50gary

    I just weighed the wheel I bought, without bearings, spacers, or the plastic dust cover it weighs 15#12.88oz. the bolt circle for the rotor is 116mm

    I don't know, the wheel was not attached to a bike, just in a rack along with a hundred others? It has the disc brake mounting holes and the same size 3.00" x 16" I did get the bolt circle wrong it's 80 mm NOT 116 mm. I tried to edit my error but the edit option was gone. I will have to make an adapter to mount a modern rotor which does have the 116 mm bolt circle.
    Cheers, 50gary
