Default 1982 Suzuki Gs1100

Hey guys,
Some one online is selling their original wheel set up to me to complete my chopper project. There one thing the guy don't know about the wheels, it the chain size. I wanted to know what chain will this fit, he said the wheel it all original.

I am trying to swap these wheels on my chopper project, hoping this will fit the 520 chain.

Any help will be highly appreciated.

if they don't can't you replace the sproket with one that does fit the 520?

The problem is, that I am making a chopper, the motor has a honda motor in it and I don't know if a suzuki GS1100 original wheel will fit, if it dose not fit, can I actually replace both sprocket to fit a 520 chain. They are both different make, and I don't know if it would work.

AMOGE,
I am trying to do something similar but not really. I want to take a newer front end and backend from a CBR and replace my front and rear end on my CB650. I am totally in the dark on this, but eventually I will need to bite the bullet and figure it out. I think you should do the same. I have no idea if this will work, but I am sure there is a way to fab them somehow. I know there are universal chains, so if you found sprokets that were similar in teeth width that fit, you should be able to find a chain for it. Good luck buddy!

if you can find a sprocket for the 520 chain that would fit your wheel i figure it would work. i have heard of a 530 conversion for the gs1100's

Hey man, I've got an '82 GS1000s Katana, the boys at the GSResource forums can tell you EVERYTHING about it. I'm not trying to divert anyone from here to another forum, but when it comes to old Suzies, they have all the info you'll need.
