2012 1000rr wheels on earlier Blade

I may have a deal on a set of 2012 1000rr wheels. For all you who dont know its no longer the 3 spoke design and a semi mesh/12 spoke design. Just curious if honda has changed anything with the CBR wheels post 2003 954rr (the bike its going on.) I know the sizes are the same but idk about the width from bearing to bearing

The width across the bearings doesn't matter, make the spacers to suit.
Do measure the width across the discs though as you may have to move the calipers to suit.

The forks are further appart on the 08-12 bikes im sure so you would need some custom spacers as BR says. You may have to put the 03 bearing in the wheel perhaps also im not sure and have a play around, you will have to use the front disks off yours as the 08> has diffrent offset etc but stud pattern is the same I think..

I think the discs are a different pattern as well though.

Nope, you're right LC, same bolt pattern but 2.5mm more offset. Whether the wheel is narrower or the discs are wider though you will have to measure.

Blimey I was right for once BR

Have to agree with you knick, not a fan of the three spoke.. Used to like them and they are easy to clean but multi spoke is the way to go

6 spoke wheels look the nuts in my eyes but why did they have to be hollow on the back of each one? The rear on this bike is orange, believe it or not. Never CBA to clean it.

When/if you get your hands on them you reckon you'd be able weigh them for us?
