I like the form over function talk... lol
I think many would agree that most people here and in general looking to purchase aftermarket wheels (or that already did) for their sport bikes whether they'd like to admit it or not, are not getting them for weight savings and less rotational mass to benefit from cutting down track times in races. You're getting them because you like how they look "bling factor" it's okay to admit, we already know. Unfortunately they may not realize that cbr 600rr wheels are some of the lightest stock wheels out there. I have the honor of comparing motorcycle rims everyday and very expensive one's at that. I think it's just stupid to unless you have a race bike that you could benefit from using them, especially for the cost. Your suspension is what should be set up before a lighter pair of wheels should be considered as a benefited handling characteristic. Then again, it's quite easy to tell who's getting aftermarket rims for looks alone on here and who isn't...
