Hi guys
Please check out the pic, on on the left is a 1998 cbr900rrw with 315mm discs and 16inch standard wheel, my bike is on the right, a 1997 cbr900rrv with a 17inch after market unidentified wheel disc size 300mm, im told its probably off a cbr600fv. Can anyone confirm what discs i need to buy please? its a bit of a head scratcher.
All help is appreciated.
Thanks

Hi Chris. For clarity, the rotor size for the RRV is 296mm. Same size for the 600F3, also the same size as the NC30, AND the same size AND bolt pattern.

I have NC30 discs on my VFR750F (94-97), 17” front wheel on my 93RRP. The only way to get the same rotor diameter, bolt pattern and carrier offset on a 95-97 RR is to use those F3 discs again, OR anything that will fit for your RRV!! I hope I’m not confusing you. The RRV OEM 296mm disks are a exactly the same as the F3, VFR750F 94-97.

The last pic is the NC30 wheel that I pulled the discs off to put on my VFR rim (I didn’t use that rim because when I took the bearings out there was a bearing seat missing).

Hi Ian

Thanks for the reply
So you are saying i need the 296's off a VFR750F 94-97, yes?

Cheers
Well, yes, but what I'm also saying is that you can use what originally came with your RRV too. They're all the same. When you do the 17" swap in front with those mentioned rims, you would normally just take your OEM rotors off the 16", and put them right on the 17". Its the RRW and RRX where things get screwy with discs.

And just as a bit more info overload, that CAN'T be done with the old RRN or RRP bikes with the speedo gear in the 16" wheel. The hubs are larger. I had to sell my RRP original 296mm discs with the OEM 16" rim. Thank god the NC30 rim had the discs on it, otherwise I would have been buying discs too.

I hope that helps.
