Fireblade wheels on a storm ..

Postby Geordie » Tue Mar 02, 2010 12:11 am

Does anybody know whether CBR 1000 Fireblade wheels fit the '97 firestorm ? I know the discs are quite a bit bigger, but would the firestorm discs fit the CBR wheels, axles, etc and what spacers would be needed to fit standard swingarm and forks ?

Cheers

With the right amount of work anything can be made to fit, but I doubt it would be a case of a direct bolt on.
I'm sure there will be someone with more knowledge of thee matters along soon.

Vfr800 front on mine looks the same as the blade one but 17" so lots more tyre choice. :thumbup:

Hi Steve,
Did you use the VFR disc's on your VFR800 front wheel :?: as Mark's (Firestarter) standard Firestorm disc's don't fit. See link:-

Does the 16 make any difference handling wise?

That thought did cross my mind about yours Steve and Mark's too. I don't know if there is a way of telling, perhaps someone on here does know :?:

PS. Your bike is still looking good :thumbup:
