Chopaleg is no longer on this site, can anyone answer some questions about his axle that I have. There is a space with the axle fitted, is this for the bolt to be able to tighten? What torque spec do I use on the bolt provided and do I use locktite to secure it? Lastly the one side is longer that the other, is this so you can centre the rim?
Any ones help will be greatly appreciated.
Sorry, I would like to do it a little backwards. Anyone have any info an '07 GSXR1K front wheel and rotors in an '08 R1 fork? So I can use the 6-piston calipers. Which clamps to use? I have some 1st gen Busa.
well just got my r1 rims with new tires mounted on them for my gen2. weight difference is not much, weighed both rears with everything, same gear, one tire was old .ones new, busa weighed 1.3 ponds more, but that was probably disk size weight as r1 disk is 2 inches smaller. not sure on front yet. not worth it as weight savings. but I do like the look. got to get r1 hanger and caliper. gen2 does not work unless you space rear disk out. and still it will only grab a little of it. so r1 it is.
so what kind of size and dimensions need to be machined for the front axle
for a gen1 ... ill make this at work with no issue just would like the correct direction in dimensions
does anyone have a closeup pic of the r1 rear wheel on a busa? I want to know if you use that black dustcover/ spacer on the R1 wheel with the busa spacers.
I actually do have a question about the different years of R1 wheels. I have an 06 rear on my gen 1. When searching eBay for some more spares (and a front wheel), I noticed that they are broken up into groups of years, but they all look the same. Are there certain years of R1 wheels that don't fit a Gen 1 Busa? Do the newer 09+ wheels drop right in like the 04 - 06 rears do? Or is the hub spacing different? Same with the fronts, will they all work with the same adapter axle, and are all the brake rotors spaced the same and 310mm?
can someone post pictures of the front how they shimmed it
does anyone here still make the front axle ?
