06' USD Forks & 6 Spoke Rim

I am in the process of installing a set of USD forks from an 06 CBR1000RR on my SH. I am goin with the 6 spoke wheels from a 900RR (I have the rear already). I want to install a 17" 6 spoker on the new front forks as well. I have found one from a F4i that I can buy for cheap. My ? is will that rim fit with the new USD forks? If not then which bike will I need to rob one from? Thanks for any advice, B.

Your best bet is to use a 6 spoke wheel from a 2000-2001 RC51, but even then I'm not sure that will be a 100% bolt on.

The bearing size is wrong. RC wheels use 22mm bearings

Yes, but isn't the bearing cavity larger on the RC wheel? You can get bearings any day of the week at NAPA. Trying to find a bearing with a small diameter outer race to fit the larger axle might be next to impossible. Plus the RC wheel uses 320mm rotors, although I don't know if the offset will be correct.

You would save alot of headache using an 1000rr wheel. They bolt right up and accept the rotor to fit the fork legs.

Agreed, and if you need spacers for a 1000RR I have 'em. Using the 929/954 upper triple with get you correct fork spacing as there's only 2mm difference between them.

I've got a set of spare 929 rims (same bearings) and an F4i front rim. The rims are essentially identical except for the inner diameter of the bearings.

929 is 22mm bearings, I believe the F4i is 20mm. The OD appears to be identical.

Rotor pattern was identical too.

'07 and down 1000rr rims, RC51, and 929/954 rims are all interchangeable.

Actually that's not quite true matt... The RC51 use 22 mm ID bearings, the CBR's use 25 mm ID bearings... So no, you cannot just swap them over... Trust me on that, they won't fit...

But other than the bearings, it's correct the RC51 rims are interchangeable in terms of the rotor pattern/dimensions... And it's more than possible to find the needed bearings, the OD is identical... But RC51 rims are hard to find and expensive...
