vfr750 front wheel into 96-97 sc33

Hi guys just thought I'd share with you my latest modification
I have just fitted a 17" vfr750 front wheel into my 97-98 sc33, mine has the smaller brake rotors diam.295mm and the vfr wheel went straight in using the fireblade axle and spacers.
Hope this is of some use to anyone looking to do the same

Is the '97 and '98 Blades not two different models??

I can't remember which one is the S33 both they both aren't the S33 model...

re: vfr750 front wheel into 96-97 sc33

Hi to be honest im not sure. Mine is registered 98 but it is clearly not the later model but its sc33 on frame and engine no.
But it has the smaller brake rotors and narrower forks. I can get more measurements of any specific area if needed as the rim it only just test fitted before lowder coat etc

Hi joycey if you can remove the wheel and meaure the distance between fork legs and brake rotor diameter il tell you of mine is the same.
I can get the measurements tomorrow evening and post them here.
With mine I used the fireblade rotors axle and spacers and fits like a glove

the front wheel on 92 to 97 blade are different to the 98-99 models.
a 95 cbr 600 wheel is what the early blades used to change up to 17" but that wont work the 98 or 99 model

post it when u get a chance, I don't keep my bike at my house so ill have to organise when I can take wheel out, will the manual tell me the size or will I still have to remove wheel?
what do u mean about brake rotor distance, is that the calliper distance?

97 is the last 9RR with the steel lower triple clamp. 98-99 Honda went to an all aluminum triple clamp. They also changed the distance between the forks in the new triple design. The modification you did would not work on a standard 98 900RR. Either yours is a 97 or earlier, or your 98 has an older front end on it.

'96-'99 are all SC33, but '96/'97 and '98/'99 are different bikes.

Re: vfr750 front wheel into 96-97 sc33

Hi Joycey1, my bike is the '98 model and I've done the conversion to 17" front wheel. Pm me your number and I can give you a shout and discuss the conversion with you.

Hi all. I've fitted a '97 VFR750 17" front wheel to my '97 CBR900RR SC33 Fireblade. It was a clean swap...no adjustments, spacers...nothing. Here's a pic.

Re: vfr750 front wheel into 96-97 sc33

I know this is an old thread, but I'm about to take delivery of a '99 SC33. Can I use a '97 VFR750 front wheel? I've searched the site but this thread is the best info I've found. Thanks. Maybe a definitive list of what works/doesn't could become a sticky at some point
