I seem to recall someone mentioning that they won't fit exactly. That was on one of the previous boards way back when. I"m sure one of the boys will chime in soon with explicit details.

I emailed D.Kyle last week asking if they wld bolt right up to my RC, he replied "no they wont". Thats it!

I thought he wld of atleast told me why they wont or better yet if its even possible to modify them. If I knew the 929 axle widths that wld be a start.

The rear wheels will work as long as you use the correct spacers, however, the fronts have different axles, so a NO GO on that.

Re: Will OZ wheels off a 929 fit the RC51?

strangely enough, i just tried this the other night, a friend with a set of OZ's off a 929 put them up for sale, and another friend with an RC-51 wanted them. well, we get the wheels, and find out a few things..... 929 rotors wont fit an RC-51, theyre about 20-25mm bigger on the 929. axle diameters are different, and changing bearings and seals didnt help, because the hub width on a 929 is more narrow, hence, only being able to get 1 dust seal fully seated. as for the back wheel, everything looked like it was going to line up just fine, except for the rear brake mount hitting on the rear rotor, again, the 929 rear wheel is too wide for a RC-51...... so, after 4 hours of dicking with a set of wheels..... NO, 929 wheels do NOT fit RC-51's

Re: Will OZ wheels off a 929 fit the RC51?

A stock RC51 rear wheel will work on a 929. I have no idea about the aftermarket ones though.

FYI, I used my '00 RC51 rear wheel on my 929 for half a race season due to a cracked lip on my stock 929 wheel.

As others mentioned, the front is a totally different story. I didn't know the hub was a different width, but I did know the axle sizes are different (RC is smaller) and the rotors are a different size (again, RC is smaller).
