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.:beer:

Had a baby last week and had to take some time off but will be back at it full force next week.

Ok we have it finished !

No price yet but we are getting that figured up now --

Basically we used 2006-07 ZX10 Front and Rear WHeels

STock 14 Front brake rotor

Rear Brakes are from the ZX10 -- You will need the zx10 rear wheel, rotor, sprocket carrier, brake hanger and caliper

Then our kit will include an exchange or outright buy on a rear hanger that we modify plus all the bearings and spacers to make it work.

I will have a price later today / tomorrow. We will start producing kits next week.
