Other than its cousin, the M50 none of the other Suzuki rims will fit. You run into issues with axle length, rotor position and size. About the only thing you can do is get a hub for a VL800, buy an aftermarket rim and spokes, then pay to have it relaced.

Thank you. How much do you think that would cost

Between $700 and $2000, depending on what you want, plus the extra cost of the tire. Then you introduce the issue with fender clearance which necessitates the removal of the fender and replacement with something else. I've seen a few people do 21's on their C50. Not my cup of tea, but it makes them happy.

Start your own thread.
You can do it!

In the future, start your own thread.

Nothing on the old Marauder wheel is interchangeable with the VL800. The rotor is significantly larger on your bike and there is no way to move the rotor over to fit the VL800 wheel. You're stuck with whatever custom wheels are on the market and the absurd price they are asking.
