RC51 rims on a 05600rr?

Okay, so i've done research and i know they can fit, but I'm having problems finding what parts i need to keep from the Rc wheel(im looking for the sp2 5spokes if that matters) and what parts to keep from the cbr?? is there anyone out there who has done this mod or can help a brotha out?

Also, anyone have pictures of them installed?

Thanks!

Unless someone sells a kit, wheel-swaps pretty much always involve customed-machined or non-standard parts:

1. axles and/or bearings. Is the axle the same diameter on both wheels? If not, you can adapt the RC51 wheel by using different bearings.

2. spacer between bearings, if you swapped bearings to bit the RR axle, then you'll need a spacer between the bearings inside the wheels

3. left & right spacers. Now that your axle fits, you have to centre the wheel. You'll need to measure and make spacers on the left & right.

4. cush-drive & sprocket holder. Does the RC51 line up the sprocket in the same location? If not, you may have to machine or shim the cush-drive to space the sprocket to the exact same location

5. brake-disc. Are they the same diameter and bolt-pattern? If not, you may need to make bracket to relocate brake-caliper to work with RC51 disc.


Did I miss anything? Some may have done something similar. Personally, I like going to a CBR929RR 17x6.0" rear-wheel so I can use a 190/50-17 tyre optimally.

Right on Dan, I guess I am looking for these answers before i get the rim... I'd liek to get away from the 3-spoke wheel and go to the 5 that the RC rim has. and i can usually find this set for like 400.00 in good shape.

I sound this thread, but couldnt get clarification at to what is additionally needed. it sounds like its just a matter of getting the right size spacers and the rear.

once i get the money together, im just gonna give it a shot and see. at least then i can post a how to maybe. theres a pic in post 4 so i know its possible. and hopefully not too costly.

Thanks for the feedback! at least i have direction now.

Bumping this thread for a good reason.


Fitting a 17 x 6 rear wheel to a CBR600rr will cause it to snag on the rear caliper.
You will have to machine and shave the caliper down to make the wheel fit.

Not worth it imo.

CBR600rr 3 spoke rims are the lightest ones,so stick with them.

Rear is ok as long as you use the 600rr spacers (and sprocket carrier just to be save). As of the front, if you have 03-04, all you need is to reuse the front spacers but for 05-06, youíd need to swap the front wheel bearings and the inner shaft (or what ever itís called) inside the front wheel and use the 05-06 spacers of course.
