lighter wheels on racebike
I have a nice straight set of OEM wheels for my 929, and another straight rear, with a front that has a minor lip bend. I am not certain whether or not I can feel the bend or not, so I just use that set for rains, as riding is gentler and slower in the wet...I hope that I cn just leave rain tires on them and use them solely for that purpose.
So I put out a feeler looking for a set of straight wheels, and was looking at anything from 929/954/RC51, CBR1000RR......basically anything that would be a straight swap trackside.
I have made a deal for a set of Marchesinis from an 07 CBR1000RR. They are forged aluminum, and I will definitely weight them and post results.
In the name of trying to make as light a wheelset as possible, I am trying to find a weight for aftermarket wave rotors compared to OEM ones before I decide which to buy and put on the Marchesinis. I am hoping to get as big a loss of weight as possible.
Also, can anyone tell me if the 07 CBR1000 wheels bolt straight up for sure with same spacers and axles as 929 ones? Thanks in advance.
