Re: What changes need to be made to make 1000 k4 wheels fit an L0?
I'm getting some seriously conflicting information. I'm not sure if I can post links to other forums here so I'll just post quotes:
From a post titled: "GSXR1000 wheel compatibility K7-K9?"
"Front wheel will fit, rear wheel needs some mods. It could just be the brake side spacer needing cutting down but we machined the calliper hanger to be sure."
"i had to machine spacer on disc side down bout 5mm and also disc carrier the same amount. front goes straight on."
Another post on another forum titled: "Can GSXR K8 1000 wheels work in a k9"
"yes the front does, we ran it. The rear is very different. Also rear uses a yamaha sprocket not suzuki."
"rear wheel is WAY different, rotor, offset, carrier, sprocket (all newer R1/R6) and the front i dont recall now, i know the 600/750 your talking about is easy swap but the 09 1000 is drastically different than the 05-08 gen. If you want buy an older front and give it a try, i know my racers never got to work, but maybe they didnt try hard enough. FYI we have a set of 09 GSXR1000 wheels were are going to be selling soon (parting entire sbk out actually!)"
On the other hand, there is a post or two on this forum that have very positive sentiment:
"Hello, I talked to Tony at Vesrah and he tried the 09 wheels on an 08 for me and worked. He also used a 08 front on the 09 for a set a rains. "
"i bet the rear will fit fine but the front will probably fit so long as you use 05-08 rotors"
"Been told, if you switch whole wheels (rims, rotors ) everything will bolt
up perfectly. I am in the same position as you I want to use my BST and CMC
from my 2006 and tranfer them to the 2009 1K."
"(will fit, heard from Marchesini dealer here)"
I'm so confused at this point!
