So I need to replace my rear rim while rebuilding this bike I realized that its busted... so my question is which rim is the best to swap for? I mean if I'm going to have to spend money I might as well upgrade while I'm at it
Hayabusa 99-07 rear
gsxr 750 00-03 rear
gsxr 1000 00-01
all of the above will fit and are lighter than your SRAD rear wheel. You can fit a TL1000s or R rear from all years as well but I am unsure if those are lighter also I just know they fit. None of the above require any mods to fit they bolt up, axles and all direct fit. Hope it helps. I have hayabusa 05 wheels on my SRAD front and rear.
can you run a 180 tire on a 6.0 rim? when i got my bike it had a 200 on rear, i took it off right away and have been running 190's ever since. id like to try a 180 but was told it would not be the correct tire for my rim. what do you guys think? i was also told that my 97 750 came stock with a 5.5 rear rim but had a 6.0 when i bought it. which is stock, 5.5 or 6.0?
thanks, are there any advantages of 180 over a 190,(besides that they are just a few dollars cheaper.) all my friends who ride on the track run 180's but i dont plan on getting out there anytime soon. i only ask because i have been on the look out for later model 5.5 to upgrade to because they are so much lighter than the old rim i have now. but if there are no advantages of a 180 over a 190, and i dont race than why waste the money on a new rim.
the smaller tire you have the better you can handle turns. My 500 had like a 140 i think and I could out handle and R bike out there it was just raw horsepower they beat me on... wider tires don't turn as well thats why if you've ever tried turning a busa it doesn't take turns real well and its cause of the wider tire
