Not sure what you are asking -try again.

When in doubt, it is usually best to remain silent, and be thought a fool,
rather than foolishly open ones mouth, and remove any doubt.

:yup: What are you trying to accomplish? The stock rear wheel on the 1000 is a 15" wheel, the stock tire is a 140-90/15.

The 1981-83 rear wheel will fit if you also get the axle and drum brake shield and shoes, but will be offset to the left compared to your rear fender. In other words, it will not run straight under the rear fender, but sit a bit to the left. This will make it line up perfectly with the front wheel (the stock wheel on your 1000 is offset to the right)

In general it will fit fine, but some 150-wide spec tyres measure as much as 160 mm, other times 145 mm, and the wider ones may interfere with the swingarm. If in doubt, ask the maker the width of the tyre when fitted to a 3.00 in wide rim before buying.
