    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.
    Thanks
    Dylan

    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.
    Tnx

    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.

    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 literally just dropped the R1 wheel right in. Stock caliper hanger, stock swingarm shim, R1 wheel spacers only. Lines up great on the Gen 1.

    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?

    Thanks
    Dave

    on gear side it is off 1/8'' so use 1/8 spacer, on brake side I had to make a spacer, r1 rim width is smaller. I used r1 brake stay, gen1 will work, gen2 will not work with it. some use a spacer on brake side, depends on arms, my mac arm needed one. stock might be ok.

    I was getting mixed information. First I was told to not use the R1 stuff and use all the busa spacers. Ill play with it some more tomorrow and use the R1 spacers. Hopefully, I wont need to shim my arm.
