Are those 12 spoke fronts and ten spoke rears?
I did not know that they were making new twelve pokes.

I only count ten on the rear.
I have a set of twelve spokes. I really like them.

Your absolutely right Hondad WTF . I didn't even notice . I purchased them thru Superbike Unlimited over @ Zilla . All parts were drop shipped from the supplier . I can't say I am really impressed with SU . I guess that's how their made now . I think 12 for the rear would have looked nicer . Thanks for picking up on that . Probably got a deal because of that !

I got mine used. I contacted CZ and they told me that they had not made twelve spokes in many years. The ten spokes are the newer model.
Did they give you the reduced/recommended torque for the wheel/axles?

Yes they did give me that . What I did notice though was the spacer behind the Cush and the sprocket that backs up to the inner wheel bearing race does not allow the Cush / sprocket slide all the way to the wheel . I'd say about a 3/16" space between the Cush and the wheel . It doesn't fit flush to the wheel , if you understand what I am saying here . Is yours the same ? I noticed it as I was balancing the rear
