1000rr wheels on a 929

I have searched and am aware this has been addressed, but I am still a little confused. I want to buy a new set of Marchesinis for my 929, but the only ones still available are for the 04-07 1000rr. I confirmed with the Marchesini distributor that the front wheel is identical between the two models. The rear has a different part number though. Maybe the part # is different only because the 1000rr wheel is wider?

The microfiche shows the 929 and 1000rr using the same spacers on the front. However, the part numbers for the rear wheel spacers are completely different. So, exactly what am I gonna need to make a 1000rr rear wheel fit?

If the wheel fits a 1000RR then it will fit straight into a 929 or 954.
929, 954 and 1000RR wheels are all the same width.

Re: 1000rr wheels on a 929

Thanks blade racer. I know that you have personally used this setup on a 929....I was just looking at the oem microfiche and saw that so many parts appeared to be different between the two rear wheels (internal and external spacers being one of them), so that was just making me wonder.

So the only thing I will use from my original setup are my two original spacers and brake rotor, or do I need to order 1000rr spacers?

The 1000RR has a different sprocket carrier design is all. A complete wheel with sprocket carrier is interchangeable with the 929/954 wheel. I would expect an aftermarket wheel to have its own carrier rather than use the OEM one.
Rear disc, sprocket and axle are exactly the same parts on the 929 through to the '07 1000RR. From memory the axle spacers are the same as well. I think it's only the sprocket carrier and the carrier bearing spacer that are different.

Re: 1000rr wheels on a 929

It's probably worth mentioning that it's not particularly difficult to make any wheel fit the bike regardless of what it came off. I've had my Marchesini Ducati wheel on my 929 and my '90 GSXR750.

Re: 1000rr wheels on a 929

Thanks again bladeracer. I'm now convinced they will fit, so I'm probably gonna go ahead and order the Marchesini set for the 1000rr. However, I REALLY would like to know where the differences lie in these two rear wheels. Carrozzeria's website lists two different part numbers for the 929 and 1000rr wheelsets. Carrozzeria wheels come with their own sprocket carriers, so that rules that out. So basically this means there is a difference somewhere in there significant enough to warrant two different part numbers, right? (sorry, I'm a worrywart, and little stuff like this bothers the hell out of me till I get it figured out)

Are the Caro's the same spoke pattern for both models?
Does the Marchesini you're looking at not have its own carrier?
If it requires the OEM carrier then I think you would need to buy a 1000RR carrier and spacer to fit the wheel as the 929/954 carrier doesn't fit (for reasons that I can't recall).
My Marchesini is a race wheel with titanium disc and very lightweight sprocket carrier.

Hi. The Marchesini has its own carrier as well, so I figured that should rule out the carrier differences between the two models. Both Marchesini and Carozzerria list two different part numbers for the rears. Maybe there is a small offset difference between the two that is almost unnoticeable unless you take the measurements?

Re: 1000rr wheels on a 929

I had previously emailed the tech dept of Carrozzeria inquiring about the part number differences. Today I received their reply, stating that the wheels are "very similar" and that "the front is the same but the rear will require a different wheel spacer on the brake side.".
