98 900rr front wheel fitment help

Does anyone know if and how you can make a front wheel from a 95-97 900rr fit a 98 900rr, I know the 98 is a little wider but I dont know by how much and if it can be shimmed or if I could get a wider spacer to compensate so any knowledge on this would be greatly appreciated.

Re: 98 900rr front wheel fitment help

Anything's possible.

You would need 5mm wider spacers each side of the wheel.
You would need to professionally re-drill the holes on the 98-99 rotors to suit the 97 wheel. Only a machine shop should do this.
You would need 5mm spacers each side to push the rotors out to align with the calipers.

It will look like absolute ass, and I have no idea as to the detrimental effects that mounting the rotors off the wheel hub will do. It's not worth messing around with. If you need a 98-99 wheel, just order one for about $420 from servicehonda.com or zanottimotor.com.

By the way, welcome!

Yea, that does sound like more trouble than its worth, I just found a good deal on a set of chrome wheels for the 95-97, thats why I was asking. Thank you,
