After that, if I put this newly build wheel on a R80ST, will this R80ST have the exactly same suspension setup as an R80g/s? I will also replace the shock with a r80g/s shock, of course.

Thank you for the reply,

The front suspension is different on the two bikes. The G/S is longer. The triple clamp and top brace are the same so the swap is quite easy.

ST front with 19"

G/S front with 21"
