I have an oversized sport touring tire installed right now so it would read a bit heavier.Any chance you could put these wheels with tyres on a scale to see how heavy they are? I could do the same with stock cb wheels to see if they lighter or no.. what discs did you install?
All CB1000R rims are the same, sans color.Would the "new" 2013 wheels (front and Back wheels fit?
Think that would make for a nice Swap.
Anyone tried it / measured them?
Lol what a nightmare... My setup was awful... No damage to bike though, and was smooth as can be after I borrowed my neighbors ladderMore or less. The hardest part about the whole thing is figuring out how to support it properly. I used an engine hoist. You don't want it pressing on the shock, nor hanging from it. You want the tire touching the ground just enough to take up the weight of the rear swingarm/wheel assembly. It makes it very easy to get the pivot bolt in and out since there isn't pressure on it. Don't forget to loosen the chain first.
Don't let it fall on the ground like tbutera.
Nope, the rear is a 5 lug bolt pattern, our cb swing arm uses a 4 lug. You'd have to see if the hubs could be swapped over but I haven't ever looked into it.Meant to ask if the new 2014 VFR INTERCEPTOR wheels would fit.
My error-didn't mean to imply CB1000R wheels.
Anyone happen to know?
That would enable a MATCHING set with --in my opinion--a much NICER "spoke" pattern.
Firstly, I found a guy to trade the wheel for me. I can buy a brand new CB wheel for $150. I can't find a VFR wheel in perfect condition for anyhting cheaper than $300, so I would have a great trade on my hands. I also hate the look of the rear wheel stock and saw this as a good opportunity to see if it would fit.Looking at the two pictures above of the painted white wheels, i can honestly say i prefer the CB one. The VFR wheel looks different but not that different and to then try and match up the front with all the work/expense that would go into this, i am not too sure i would bother, i would invest the monies spent on new suspension for the rear (Ohlins) and have the front upgraded.
I do like the look of the bike with the new wheels but why did you not remove the rear pillion pegs ?
As you say---each to their own------The OE wheel was one of the reasons I bought the bike.---------The VFR wheel looks miles better imho.
The OE wheel just looks like a 70's style bacon slicer.
I'd have bought a CB to replace my hornet 9 ages ago....but that rear wheel, well, it's a deal breaker.
Bought a Tuono instead.
Still have the hornet though.....each to their own eh?
