'98/'99 is the most difficult to do due to it being different from anything else.

must be, will i have any joy lol!!

F1, F2, F3, F4 and F4i wheels are all different (F4/F4i _may_ be the same but the discs are different).
Certainly you can run whatever wheels you want but each is likely to require different modifications.

Just cut them shorter.
I had to cut about 3mm off the spacers when I put the GSXR1000 front wheel on my ZX6R.

might have a go at cutting them just dont want to f**k them up and be without a bike...

Take them to somebody with a lathe and have them make you some new ones the correct length.
You'll need to measure the length required.

but has any1 tried to fit the cbr600f-sport front wheel to a 98 blade????
My 98 and 99 both run Blackbird front wheels and Superhawk rear wheels. Every dimension (except 17-inch) is the same bar the overall bearing spacing. Added 2.5mm spacing each side and it's perfect.

Hi - I seem to remember that the RRN was the original Blade and had speedo drive - if so you may wish to consider this reponse (from a previous thread).

You can only use a 1995-1998 CBR600 F3 wheel. Use your 900RR axle and wheel spacers, and rotors. It will bolt right up. You should also use the 120/70-17 tire.

You will need to convert your speedo drive to that of the the 1995-1997 900RR. This is a digital sender that runs off the front sprocket, as opposed to the cable drive off the front wheel on your '93.

When you do this, you can either fit the:

* 95-97 900rr gauges
* 98-99 900rr gauges (but you need a custom SpeedoHealer than can only be purchased from the factory in Hungary - about $100, and you'll need the temperature sender from a 98-99 900rr too.

Go over to rrzone.com and you'll find a write up there in the how to. Look at the 'How to install the CBR600 F4i digital gauges'. You can fit these gauges as an option to the 98-99 900rr gauges if you get the custom SpeedoHealer and the 98-99 temp sender. Then you'll have a nice set of digital/analog gauges. And trust me, seeing your speed on a digital display is a hell of a lot easier to read than on an analogue dial!!!

PM me if you have any questions.

Cheers,
Sime
Hope this helps
