Gen I to gen II wheels
« on: October 01, 2009, 08:25:28 PM »
Ok......I've heard that you can install the gen I wheels on a gen II if you use the gen II brake rotors and buy special spacers.  Is this true?  If not what needs to be done to make it work?  I've got a set of gen I wheels that I can't sell and I'm thinking I'll might as well use.  Thanks guys.

I have my gen1 wheels on my gen 2. You will have to get a set of gen 1 rotors cut down to gen 2 diameter. You will also need a special rear rotor made to fit the gen1 bolt pattern and gen2 diameter. The gen 2 front brakes are smaller dia in front and larger in rear...

It sounds like that was a pain in the ass and expensive!

I'm thinking I would be better off selling my rims instead of trying to retrofit.

The rear rotor was $150 and i cut my front rotors down myself.   It was a hell of a lot cheaper than  buying new rims  8)

you guys are making this way to complicated here are pics. you need 4- 5mm spacers,or washers for the front and your done there. as far as the rear if you have a underbraced arm get 2 hyme joints a piece of hollow rod steel,aluminum, etc. make a brake rod drill a hole in underbracing put a collar in the hole then bolt it  and you are good.if its a stock arm get a 8mm riv nut put it in the bottom of the arm and bolt your rod there.

what is the front brake rotor diameter on a 08-09 busa.
I am thinking of getting a silver 09 busa.  I have a really nice set of chrome pvm y5's off of my old 03-04 gsxr 1000 that would be pimp on it...  braking wave rotors on the front and the fancy full floating pvm rear brake rotor. Might even seal the deal to get it if the 03-04 wheels will bolt on.
I am not 100%, but believe the 01-02 1000 is 300mm.  03-04 is 280mm.  01-02 and 03-04 gsxr have the same bolt patern and interchage.  05-06 gsxr 1000 is 290mm rotor diameter and different bolt number/pattern then 01-04.
maybee put a 01-02 or older busa rear brake caliper on and machine the brake mount/spacer a little to make it work if the thickness of the mount is different then the busa one.

found a post on psychobike saying the 03-04 1000 rotors on a busa gen 1 wheel with 08 busa axle works on the front.  so 03-04 1000 wheel should go right on with busa front axle.
Also said to use a gen 1 busa rear brake caliper and hanger when useing gen 1 wheel on a gen 2 busa.  so hopefully my 03-04 1000 rear wheel will go right on with gen 1 busa hanger and caliper.  Resisting the temptation to call right now and buy the 09 busa.   :hys:

old ass post, but found it searching for something..  So I bought a new black 2009 busa a couple weeks latter.  I have the 03-04 gsxr 1000 pvm wheels on it.  Only updating to list extra information incase some one else comes across this post in a search.
In the front the rotors on the 03-04 gsxr 1000 are closer together then the busa. I put a washer under each bolt between the rotor and wheel.  spaced the rotors out, but just barely not enough.  I have ben running the bike like this for 4 years. the 03 gsxr 1000 front brake rotor is 300mm and 08 busa rotor is 310mm.  The rotors are not making full contact with the pads.  the little bit of pad that is not making contact is not getting worn and now the pad is almost making contact on the un worn part.  could cause front brakes to stop working from the pads hitting each other and not pushing on the rotor.  I am taking the calipers off right now to take to a machine shop to have the calipers machined down 5 mm where they contact the forks.  Got a new set of brake pads to put in when I put them back on.  Going to see if I can get some thicker washers to put in the front to space the rotors out a little more to center them better in the calipers.  I will have to pay attention to how much thread depth I am getting on the rotor bolts.
