Re: RRX 1999 Front wheel conversion?
My first post, sorry it's a sad one...
I've just been royally ripped trying to put a 17" on my RRW Blade. I got it off ebay, from a guy who said he'd had it on his RRW.
First thing, after parting with £138, was I realised the bearings were smaller and wouldn't take the new Blade ones I'd got. So, I made up two 2mm washers and a new internal hub spacer to accomodate the smaller CBR600 bearings. Stripped and painted the wheel, fitted a nice 120/70/17 Pilot Power, only to find my Blade's discs don't fit.
All in this wheel has cost me £309, and it's useless. The seller was clearly lying through his teeth, though I'm sure he'll try to tell me he was using CBR600 discs and calipers next.
I'm seriously pissed off.
