Re: Easiest 17" front wheel swap for RRW
It occurs to me the 04-05 Fireblade was fitted with the same 310mm discs. Has anyone measured the disc mounting width? It'll have a bigger spindle, but that's nothing a new set of spacers couldn't fix, just make top hat/reducer spacers, then you also have captive spacers which is nice. They just need to be long enough to be a spacer, and reduce the bearing diameter, and protrude a couple mm to hold the centre spacer in line.
I think if I would go for the back wheel I'd do the same, pack out the wheel onto the spindle rather than machining the swingarm. Still very good knowledge that the wheel slips in and lines up the chain.
