R1 wheels on Busa
« on: September 05, 2010, 10:08:03 AM »
Hello
Did some one already put 05 R1 wheels on a busa
I thinki saw some grudgebikes with this
I was thinking how the cushdrive is holding up on the big horsepower bikes
And they are very light wheels

I was thinking the same thing. I saw someone that had them and they are sounding pretty good to me. does anyone make any spacers for them? is it a simple swap over or do you have to change the shafts out/swap to different wheel bearings? hopefully someone chims in on this?

I did the swap...the rear is a direct bolt on no problems...the front you need a different front axle...I got mine from a guy on psycho bike website named chopleg...he sells them for like 120 shipped...it's billet and pretty nice...after that you have to space the calipers...that's easy with some washers...but I saved about 8lbs and the 5 stars look great

Those R1 wheels do look great on a Busa. Are the R1 front rotors the same diameter as the Busa??

The front rotors are the same size on a 2004-2006 R1, 320mm, 2007 R1 and up are the same size as a Gen2, 310 mm

I used the stock R1 front axle on my bike. I have the 06 gsxr 1000 forks, I just machined the r1 axle down on the allen bolt side so it fits thru the opposite fork leg of the gsxr fork. And made a billet bushing to fill gap between other fork leg and axle. Would post pics but havent figured out how to, always get a file to large error.

The other side was machined down to a smaller diameter to fit into fork leg clamp.

I had it written down somewhere but where I don't know. I will be pulling wheel off to have a new tire put on in the next few days , and remeasure it. Also remember that the forks are Gsxr 1000 forks so its diff fro0m gen1 forks that I know of for sure. Dont know if gen2 forks are same or not.
