929rr 954rr rear wheel fitment

I upgraded to a 929rr front end, and am interested in converting to a 929rr/954rr rear wheel to widen it to a 6 inch lighter rim and run a 200 rear tire. Any one done this wheel swap, or know if it can be done? I emailed several people on ebay asking for width of wheel outer bearing to outer bearing. I know the bearings are different, but they can be replaced.

Anyone know of a 3 spoked wheel that is 6" that would fit the bike for sure?

I know 6inch rims have been used but not so sure about 200mm tires. Might want to get some measurements first.

I have a 190

I have a 190 on my blue hawk, I'm pretty sure a 200 will fit.

kai ju is an unknown quantity at this point
200 section tire

Even with the proper width rim it may still adversely affect the handling.
The VTR doesn't "need" a 200.
But as we all know, it's not just about "need", it's the "want" that really get's us in trouble.

You'd be better off going to a 190/55. It affects the handling less.
