R1 wheel swap on 01-02 GSXR 1000

Hello,
Can someone please give me all the details (as much information as possible) on how to do the conversion R1 wheels to 01-02 GSXR 1000. Everything that I will need to do it myself. Thanks

Never seen anyone put R1 wheels on a GSXR-1000. You kind of make it sound like this is a common thing to do with your question?

Re: R1 wheel swap on 01-02 GSXR 1000

He didn't mention the year of the R1 wheels so I picked 2014 at random. The front wheel bearing has a 22 mm ID vs 25 mm for the Suzuki. That sounds like a major issue and the topic has barely been touched. Off hand, a really bad idea.

Re: R1 wheel swap on 01-02 GSXR 1000

I did not realize I had to go through a ritual to ask for assistance on the greatest GSXR sites known. To answer your questions: I chose R1 wheels because I like the 5 spokes and would like to try something different. Also, I read a few threads where the conversion was done but they never went in detail. I honestly figured that I would receive assistance from who ever did the conversion on this site. I would have never guessed that a Gixxer veteran like Oldgixxer would be so uninviting. He apparently doesn't remember when he first begin Gixxer and asked for assistance.

Thanks for your response. The R1 wheels are off of 06. Why do you think it is a bad idea? If possible, can you offer more detail on the topic? Thanks

He just told you why, actually he just told you only 1 reason why. For starters just the front wheel has a smaller ID bearing that the GSXR so you'll either need to find custom bearings to be made that match the ID of the R1 wheel to the OD of the GSXR front axle which is larger, and that doesn't even get into the issue of aligning the wheel properly in the forks and what if any rotor offset needs to be taken into consideration which will require custom spacers to be fabricated. Again that's just the front wheel. The rear wheel will likely carry the same list of issues with clearances and alignments.

Not to say its impossible, just that if this was a common mod that people frequently did then your question wouldn't seem like its so far out of left field. As it happens to be I've never (and I'd wager most on here haven't as well) seen anyone try to do this so its not like "what exactly do I need to do to make this work" is readily available information that has been well documented.

If you were asking something like, how to I fit 17 inch WC GSXR rims onto an older 18 inch rim'd GSXR oiler then that is something that is well documented and has been done alot by those on here (myself included).

Your best bet would be to take the wheels and mock them up and take the measurements and figure out what needs to be done. You can feel free to share your findings on here when you get it squared away in case anyone else ever decides to do the same, though I'm still not sure why you're doing this in the first place.

You have no idea how many fuckheads come on here , ask questions and members take the time to answer ... and never come back.

As far as Iím concerned Iím well over it ... if you had made the effort to log on and ask a question donít leave people hanging for days for you to reply , you wonít get much help tbh.

Oldgixxer has been here long enough to have been through this even more so than me ... can you blame the guy ??!!

The flaw with your reply is that I don't immediately join a forum,make my very first post asking for:someone please give me all the details (as much information as possible) on how to do the conversion.... Everything that I will need to do it myself. without contributing something in return to the community. This isn't a Facebook group...
