Thruxton rear wheel on a Bonneville

Hey all,

Does anyone know if a Thruxton rear wheel wheel bolt right up for a 2007 Bonneville? Would the sprocket carrier off the Bonneville slip right into the rear wheel? Is it the same for the rotor?

Im looking to get a lighter rear wheel since the steel/chrome rear wheel on the Bonneville is way too heavy.

Yes, they're a direct swap. I have a Behr Thruxton rim (albeit with a Talon hub) fitted to my T100 using the original cush drive, sprocket carrier and brake rotor. Whilst it is lighter than the original, it's not night and day different. Maybe the later Thruxton wheels with the modified hub and Excel rims are lighter, but I doubt if they'll be a lot different. I'm also using a Thruxton front wheel and mainly did the swap to get rid of the crappy rusted chrome rims and gain an 18" front wheel.

Thanks PAAS, Im considering doing that as well since I do want to make it turn slightly faster. Was the Thruxton front wheel a straight swap also? If not what is needed? Im thinking the I would need to use the Thruxton front rotor as well?

Any details would be greatly appreciated

The Thruxton front wheel is also a straight swap. You don't need the larger diameter Thruxton front rotor, you would only need that if you changed the fork lowers as that's what allows the larger rotor (the caliper mounts are slightly higher up the leg). You will need the Thruxton speedo drive unless you want the speedo to be even more optimistic than it is already. In the US you should be able to pick up a used one fairly easily on eBay or from someone like Pinwall. I ended buying a new one as they were hard to come by in the UK. It's part number T2001161 and Bikebandit quotes the US price as $107.20 (they list at 92.47 including tax in the UK so that sounds about right). As far as I know the front and rear hubs on spoked wheeled Bonnies/T100s are physically the same as those fitted to the Thruxton and Scrambler (although the Scrambler's are finished in black). The change that took place to the rear hubs for the 08 model year (straight pull spokes) was made to all three models.

No problem. Good luck with the mods!
