954 Wheels???

Is there any additional work to put RC51 wheels on a 954 or will they bolt right up? If there is additional work, how much? I really like the 5 spoke design better than the 3.

Thanks

Discs are the same bolt pattern so I can't see there'd be much work in it.

Re: 954 Wheels???

Front wheel bearings & dust seals will have to be changed for 954 items so the 954 axle & spacers will work but thats it I think.

Rear wheel is idential I think

Re: 954 Wheels???

Good point.
The front RC51 axle is only 22mm so you'd need to swap 25x47 bearings in and replace the centre spacer with a 25mm one - probably from your 954 wheel if you're lucky and they're the same length. Otherwise take the 51 spacer to a machinist and have him make you one exactly the same length but with a 25.25mm bore out of aluminium.
Axle spacers I would expect to have to make your own anytime you fit a different wheel.
I recommend replacing bearings anytime you swap a wheel anyway simply because they're so cheap.
