    Default zx10 wheel conversion to a zx14

    OK I got my wheels in today and we have started teh project of putting 10 wheels on my 14.

    Here is what I have so far --

    I am going to run a 06-07 zx10 wheels.

    The front was easy -- pretty much a direct swap -- zx14 axle, spacers, and brake rotor.

    The front setup with 1 brake rotor no spacers or axle.

    ZX14 - 14.8 lbs
    ZX10--12.8 lbs

    The rear wheel is a bit tougher -- so far we have the bearings converted but are working on crush tube and other spacers -- then we will tackle the brakes.

    The wheels with rotor and sprocket carrier -- no sprocket no outside spacers

    ZX14 22lbs
    ZX10 17lbs

    So total loss so far is 7lbs.

    we will be building a kit to do this conversion so stay tuned.

    idk if this helps you but I did this to my 14, I got a sprocket carrier off a zx6r w inner spacer, you can use the front bearings to fit the stock rear axle, made 2mm thick spacers to bump the bearings out to the right dimensions as the stock ones and lengthened the center spacer by 4mm and appropriately 25mm instead of 20

    $1000 to $3000 less than those aftermarket wheels, depending how much you pay for the donor zx10 parts.

    Its a no brainer IMO.
    Good work OSR!

    FYI The front directly swaps out with 06~10 zx 10 & 04~05 ARE DIFFERENT! The bearings & axle on the 04~05 zx 10 are smaller than the 06~10.

    man we have just been swamped with motor work and haven't touched them -- i will do my best to get on them this week -- i think all we have to do is modify the hanger and we ar done -- just need some time. Had a baby last week and had to take some time off but will be back at it full force next week.
