I have an '88 750. I see the previous owner had put a wider rim on the bike. The rim is the same style as the 88 750 and looks zookie stock, but quite wider than the stock 160. The tire on the rear is 180/55/17.. The name brand is "ASASHI"..I have a # off the rim and I was wondering if any of yooz old skool gurus could help me figure out what yr. & model this rim came off of.

The # is J-1(orL)-7-X-M-T-5.50 M-T

ANYONE???

it frankly could be off any number of older gsxr's that used 5.5" rear rims.

you should be able to bolt up any rear sprocket from a '90-95 750 (pre-'90 750 sprockets will NOT work unless you are somehow able to fit the 6 mount points on the cush drive through the 5 mount holes on the pre-'90 sprocket
) or '89+ 1100.....keeping in mind that the 750's came with 530 chain and sprockets stock and the 1100's came with 532's.

whichever one you choose (520/525/530/532, etc.) will depend on what pitch chain and sprockets you have now. and if you've got a lot of miles on the chain and sprockets, it's best to replace them all as a set.

asahi is the oem that casts the wheels for suzuki.

Thanks Joey & Jeff, I'll do a little checking with Suzuki.

..The new sprocket won't fit cause it has 5 mounting holes and the current cush drive has got 6. Just as our forum guru Jeff stated...
