Suzuki FA50 rim and tiers swap

Christopher Shilling /

Hey so this is my first post so I’m not 100% sure how this works but I have a question/idea I was hoping to get some feedback on. I’m restoring/upgrading my ‘83 FA50 and was wondering if the rims and tiers from a FZ50 would mock up and work. I’ve done a little looking around and seams like they run the same break and cable set up. Just wondering if someone with a little more experience could shine some light on if they would work. Thanks in advance and also this group has already helped me a bunch with my rebuild questions.

Different wheel diameter.

Re: Suzuki FA50 rim and tiers swap

Yes different dia. But they fit. Fa has 14 inch and fz has 12 inch. But the outer diameter is almost the same.

Dang that looks really good. And you didn’t have to add anything to get the rims to match up?
