900rr wheels

I would like to pick up some 900rr wheels that I can put on a 919. Not a huge fan of the 3 spoke wheels honda put all tons of the CBRs and other models.

The 900rr wheels look MUCH better. Does anyone know if the RC wheel will bolt up to a 919?

Thanks

The 900RR rear well is a direct swap, for the 6-spoke front you'll need a CBR600F3 wheel, rotors and a combination of 600F3 and 919 spacers

think the f3 front needs spacers for the calipers to line up correctly with the rotor.

I believe you're right, I think most people have needed one washer between the caliper and fork.

Ok, I have been doing some reading about that just now. Seems like some guys put the 900rr wheel on the rear and get a 600F3 wheel for the front. They look very similar.

I think getting 600F3 front and rear wheels would be the best option. Is adding those spacers difficult? Will does it affect performance or handling at all?

It's not a very difficult swap once you get the correct parts collected.
I think the 900RR/600F3 combo is a tad lighter than the stock 9er setup but not enough that you'll see any handling difference

Yeah, maybe that is the best option, since that rear bolts up no problem. They are both 5 spoke. You'd really have to look closely to notice the difference.

Will do. Have not picked it up yet, hopefully this weekend. I have pictures though, as this is my friend's bike.

He already did the 900rr exhaust swap, so it has one exhaust, bar end mirrors, custom street fighter bars (got rid of the Schwin bicycle bars).

I want to swap the wheels, paint it white, and put the OEM decals back on. And in a perfect world, get like an 08 1000rr tail on it. But that is probably out of reach for me.

Here are some pictures with the RC.
