The 93-98 GSXR 1100 wheels are the same as the 93-95 750 wheels, and require the same mods to fit. A p/n search on ronayers.com shows that the 94-97 RF900 used the same wheel as well.

I don't think you can run a 530 rear sprocket on the SV due to clearance issues between the swingarm and the sprocket bolts.

The best part about these wheels is that they are visually identical to the 1st gen SV wheels.

The F3 wheel can run either the 170 (preferred for that wheel) or a 180.

Thanks gill.

MullerJD had his 530 sprocket modified so it was a 525. not sure about the details.

Correct, meaning he had it machined to be the thickness of a 525. I had the same done to the Renthal sprocket I'm running now, but I recently discovered that AFAM is now making a 520 sprocket for that rear wheel in sizes from 38-50. One of the biggest drawbacks to this point was that the rear sprockets were either only available from a couple sources (Vortex and Sprocket Specialists) or were really expensive (Sidewinder). I'll probably be switching to an AFAM next spring, as I'll be pretty close to needing a new chain by then.

:) I also have those sprockets available to me for customers, with the combination Chain and Sprocket Packages I am providing as well,

The rear sprockets are Black, in Hard Anodized Aluminum, Super Light Weight with Superb Life for wear and performance,

Enjoy the ride, and best regards,

Blair I need a front sprocket and chain pretty quick for the 05' SV. I changed the rear for a 525 when I got the wheel about 2000 miles ago. My front sprocket looks good no curling but I want to change with the chain. As I am stretched to the last two lines on the adjuster. I want a rivet link chain and a steel sprocket in 525. thanks.

Swiest I got a F3 wheel on my 2nd gen, the spacers pretty much stay in place when you change rubber so you can swap rims in under 20 minutes with hand tools. I could probably do it in 5 minutes with a little practice. The kit works nice and if you want new bearings the part number is Timken 204's they are 15 each at Autozone.

I run a Michelin 170 and feel really comfortable on edge. Grip is great and the profile is nice I will be trying a 180 Pirelli Rosso next.

I have heard that RC51 forks fit in the GSXR triples which would allow you to run matching rims then??? Only a rumor. Blair?

That's awesome, thanks!

Does anyone have weights on the different wheels? Or know which fronts may be able to be put on the SV as a set (front/rear)?

I was thinking about trying a VFR front wheel. 6 sproke front wheel, but it wont work with GSXR forks. Im not sure but I think the VFR800 front wheels have the same size rotors and axle as the stock SV. If someone wants to try it you could have a VFR front wheel and f3 rear wheel. 5 and 6 spoke wheels look good.

I am trying to source a set of RC forks as we speak. I have a friend lives 1 block from me with an 01' RC that I could snag specs off of if you are interested.

So you're saying you make (or resell) sprockets for the 93-98 GSXR 1100 / 94-95 GSXR 750 rear wheel in 520 and 525 thicknesses?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't all of those choices (except the CBR F3 wheels) three-spoke wheels very similar to the stock SV wheels?

I doubt I'd ever do this mod, but I guess if *were* going to to do it, I'd want something that at least looked like I modded it. Those f3 spoked wheels would be my choice.

Nope, you're right. However, some people like the stealth and want their wheels to match (like me). And you can tell you modded them, when you park next to an SV with a stock-sized rear tire.

Exactly. Thats why I love the GSXR rear wheel swap. It looks stock but when you look from behind and you see a bigger tire then you know something was done.
