No it won't. Brake disc mounting is totally different. With discs of a carb blackbird and some crafty spacing on the calumets you might or might not make it work.

The "issue" with the '98/'98 900RR is that they changed the front end, in particular they put the forks wider apart, which changes several other things.

Re: 1998 cbr 900 wheel fitment question

So if I were to pick up a set of aftermarket wheels made for up to a 97' I couldn't make them work on my 98'.or if I could what major mods would I need to make?

I don't think the front would go straight on but the rear is probably the same.
Whatever it takes to make the wheel fit the axle or vice versa, basically change bearings to suit and make up axle and bearing spacers.
Modify the forks/calipers to align them with the discs, and/or modify the discs to make them fit the calipers.

You don't need to "see" it.
You can fit any wheels to any bike.
You can run car wheels front and rear if you want to.
