i don't think the 08 5 spoke nite rod wheels will fit an 03 swingarm but i was wondering if you could change the bearings out of an 03 wheel and put them in an 08 wheel so the 08 would accept the 03 axel i know my blk n slv 03 would look awesome with chrome and blk 08 niterod wheels!!

They will fit in the swing arm. Ray has the wheels on his 03

I just installed the front wheel. Bearings and swingarm is not the issue -- spacers and axle sleeves appear to be the challenge but definitely do-able. The 08 wheels are made for a 25mm axle but will fit on previous year bikes with 1" axle as long as you purchase 1" bearings. My dealer had to custom build the axle sleeve and perhaps tweaked the spacers as well...but they got it to fit.
