Has anyone here retrofitted different wheels onto their R's?

I am in the process of trying to fit 93 CBR900R 16X3.5 front onto my 85 R.

Think I have the different axle diameters worked out by swapping the bearings on the CBR wheel for ones that will accept the R axle while having the CBR OD. Will need some new spacers and have to lose the speedo sender but think that part will end up OK.

The rotors on the CBR rim are 2mm wider per side and a larger diameter, so will need to address that shortly.

Anyway, just curious if its been done by anyone here as advice is always appreciated.

Thanks

Michael

Try this website. He makes a decent amount of retrofit stuff for the vf1000r and the vf500f also.

Thanks Shannon. I am familiar with Jaime from another Board, good guy. I'll shoot him an e-mail.
