PVM Wheels

Would there be enough noticeable advantage (feel) to PVM's over stock to justify the price? (Twisties and trackdays)

How much lighter than stock would they be?

Re: PVM Wheels

decreasing unsprung weight is always a good idea. I'm not sure of the stock wheel weights for the 1000RR. So the delta involved in the weight difference and the weight loss on the outside of the wheel would improve the handling remarkably...

Try LDH's site over at rogue racing or rc51.org, I know he had some wheel weight info there...

Forged Aluminum PVM's or Forged Magnesium PVM's.

5 spoke, 10 spoke, 20 spoke?

10 Spoke Info
Average weight - "10Y" spoke Forged Aluminum
Front - 3.5" x 17" = 8.0lb
Rear - crush drive w/sprocket carrier - 6.0" x 17" = 12.5lb

Average weight - "10Y" spoke Forged Magnesium
Front - 3.5" x 17" = 5.0lb
Rear - crush drive w/sprocket carrier - 6.0" x 17" = 8.0lb


5 Spoke Info
Average weight - "5Y" spoke Forged Aluminum
Front - 3.5" x 17" = 8.25lb
Rear - crush drive w/sprocket carrier - 6.0" x 17" = 12.75lb

Average weight - "5Y" spoke Forged Magnesium
Front - 3.5" x 17" = 5.0lb
Rear - crush drive w/sprocket carrier - 6.0" x 17" = 8.0lb


There is no 20 Spoke info I could find.

Those new PVM 20s are mighty purty.

Re: PVM Wheels

They are cool looking but I like the 10's better.

Re: PVM Wheels

For the weight difference you might as well get the "Y" spoke.


This is from 1000RR.net:



So I finally started wrenching my 1000RR in preparation for upcoming track season. Since I was taking the bike apart I though I'd put some parts into scale as there has been a lot of discussion on where one can save weight and how much this and that weights.

So here we go

Front wheel: 4000 g (without disks, bearings installed)
Rear wheel: 5500 g (without disk, bearings installed)
Chain: 2400 g
Swingarm: 7280 grams
Shock: 2780 grams (in comparison my WP shock weight 2920 grams, but that is with remote preload adjuster)
OEM rear sprocket (530/40): 540 g, my 520/42 alu Renthal is 240 g
OEM Battery: 2900 g
OEM rear brake disk: 800 grams
OEM exhaust: header 4750 grams, muffler+valve 4800 grams, heat shield 500 grams
OEM Clipons: 330 grams each

The OEM wheels seems to be quite light, when compared with for example PVM forged alu aftermarket stuff: PVMs are 3500 and 5000 grams, so only a total of 1000 grams gets saved. Forged mags are a different story, PVM's are around 2000 g front and 3000 g rear. As a side note RC51 front is 4770 grams.





Unfortunatley, I don't know the conversions.
