The Goldwing axle is larger, so the CX axle would need to be shimmed to fit the wheel. There's no convenient bearing that fits the CX anxle and GW wheel. There's also the whole rear disc brake conversion that you'd need to work out.
If you want to try your hand at wheel building, you might adapt the GW rim to the CX hub. Of course, that's potentially catastrophic if you don't REALLY know what you're doing.
And the wider tire might not fit in the CX swing arm.
It's not as simple as just bolting it back together.
Look for threads by folks who have done it. They used specific, aircraft-rated hardware that's slightly oversized so the rivet holes can be drilled out to a uniform size and roundness. As I said, you really need to know what you're doing to make it safe.
Be sure your wider tire will fit before you go to all that work.
Hey all, I'd seen a couple of posts about doing the GL1100 wheel conversion and in my quest to get radials onto the CX I decided to investigate doing this procedure myself. I decided to do an in depth and detailed guide outlining exactly what is needed and the steps involved. Things you'll...
Another thing to note is that the poster in the referenced article did not use shoulder bolts. The shoulder on a shoulder bolt is machined to a specific diameter. Shoulder bolts would be preferable in this application.
Whatever width tire you fit, you will want to ensure that the tire does not interfere with the swingarm. I have not heard of this conversion before. The CX turbo models, which I am more familiar with could barely accept one size larger tire width than stock as anything larger than that will certainly rub the swingarm.
