\'02 rear wheel

Sorry guys I asked this a while back and I can't find my post with the search! I know I can use the front wheels of 00-03 750 and 01- 03 600 and rear with the spacer. What about different year 1000's rear rims? I know '01-'02 will work. '03-'05? What about the rear rim from a 'busa? Will running a 5.5 rear rim affect the bike handling?

Re: \'02 rear wheel

I have no first hand experience with this just info from stuff that I gathered last fall when I was searching for a 2nd set of rims.

Any 1000 rims will work. As will the Busa. I'm drawing a blank on the 750. not sure if it's a 5.5 or 6 inch rim. Also, I don't think the TLR rims will work, either as the sprocket bolts directly to the rim.

You'll have better luck with a 6 inch rim. I talked to a local race shop and he told me that I could mount a 5.5 rim on my bike but it's pretty tough to get them to handle right again. He suggested I either go with the 6 inch or get nothing at all.


hope that helps
