Default Front Wheel Swap on a 2016 SPortster Forty Eight

I just picked up a 2016 Sportster 48 and want to swap the front mag wheel out for either a 19 or 21 inch spoke wheel. Does anyone know if I can swap the front wheel over from another model without having to swap out the whole front end or brake set up? I know my 48 has 49mm forks with a 1 inch diameter axle and single disc brake. Looking for a solution that will allow me to just swap a wheel over and retain the rest of my stock set up. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Best advice I can offer is talk to stealeriship about it. Unless someone with more knowledge chimes in. I see that you are another Iron love'n 2016 48 owner just as I am.nativebroncofan
