Hi,
vfr 750 96/97
vfr 400 nc 30

also vtr 1000 firestorm all years, this is a 3 spoke wheel though.
with all these wheels use your current spacers and spindle of your blade.

Its very easy, get the cbr 600(96/97) wheel, put your fireblade discs on it, (they are the same), and use your spacers and spindle from your fireblade, then just put the wheel back in the forks, simple as that, i've done loads of them, its also best to drop the forks through the yokes by another 5mm (so an extra 5mm fork should be showing through the top yoke), otherwise the bike will steer slow.

standard mudguard will fit fine, the only time i had a problem with mudguard was when one of my blades had a fender extender fitted, i had to remove it, as a 120/70/17 tyre would rub it, also check the wheel bearings on the 600 wheel, if they are no good, you can pick up good quality bearings very cheap on ebay. The only time people get into problems with this upgrade, is when they have got the wrong year/model wheels, then discs and spacers etc dont match up with the blade. You will be fine.

Re: honda blade rrt 16" wheel..can anyone help me with what other 17" wheel i can put

I just tried to do the swap with a new rim from Delkevic rim made for the NC30. I am here to tell you, this is NOT a straight swap. The rotors from my 98 900 are 305mm, and the rotors for the NC30 are 295mm with a different bolt pattern.

Re: honda blade rrt 16" wheel..can anyone help me with what other 17" wheel i can put

I have an NC30 (original rim and rotors -- off my NC30) and this fits fine into my 94/95 blade..... I have used this whilst the other rim (of a CBR600) was being reshoed..... I have used all sets of discs...

Of course whilst I did not need to change discs (they appear to be the same bolt pattern, thickness and diameter) I did need to use the blade spindle and spacers..

The issue is to make sure you get the right year kit... I believe the later model blades were slightly different...

My advice - quote what year and model blade you have and ask for direct advice from those that have fitted 17" rims to that model.....

Also - there are model/part numbers cast into the wheels - these could be quoted for easier reference if buying second hand....

From what I have heard, the conversion is a lot more complicated on the 98-99 (RRW/X) bikes, they have a different set-up to the earlier bikes.

Yep. '98/'99 are unique in disc pattern as well.

No one said this mod was for 1998 model fireblades, only up to 1997 fireblade bikes, i've used many nc30 wheels in the past on my old 94-97 fireblades, and never had no problems, its all a straight swap over, as bladeracer said the 98/99 fireblades are different.

Yeah, I was assuming it was for the 98/99, which is what I have. What do I have to do to get a 17" rim for that bike?
