Here's some pics of the new 17" wheel, finished in black with a brand new Michelin Pilot Power.

As you can see, the little nipples aren't even worn off of any part of this tire yet, which by the way is one of the best tires on the market.

I've heard many different people say that this is the single best performance upgrade that can be done to the Fireblade...

And it can be yours for $250 plus shipping.... or $300 plus shipping next week when I post it on eBay.

If you want the Front rotors to go along with that (they are essentially new thickness) add $100 for both.

If you want the entire Front End, including Calipers (with all new pads and a spare set of Sintered Race pads that are barely used), Rotors, Forks, both Triple Clamps and the Stem, all of that can be yours for $650 plus shipping.

Thanks!

Mike

Should work on 1993 to 1995, except the speedo cable attachment won't be there (i think), and definitely works on 96-97, will work on 98-99 with a spacer set (the forks are incrementally wider apart than the 93-97, from what I know).

Hi,

I have been toying with changing the front wheel as the replacement rotors for the front are insanely expensive on my 1992 and mine are shot. Did you ever run your bike with the bigger front wheel? What improvements did you find or what are they claiming it will do.

Thanks, Todd

I bought the bike after the first owner low-sided it, and rebuilt it from the ground up.

I put this wheel on it before I rode it for the first time, so I can't compare.

From what I know, the biggest advantage is the larger selection of front tires, whereas the 16" tire selection is limited. Better tires may completely transform the handling of your bike!
