16" cbr wheel on Gen1
« on: December 09, 2019, 12:16:13 PM »
I have recently purchased a 1996 CBR900 16" front wheel and have been told this wheel will not work on my Gen1. Need input as to what I need to make this wheel work or what wheel I need. I really want to put a 16" front wheel on my bike. Thanks for your help.

Thanks for the axle info. Looking for the rotor/year wheel that will work with our Gen1 bikes also.

I just want to add the information that I had found on this swap and share with everyone. Couple of pics also.

CBR 900 wheel to Hayabusa Gen1

Aftermarket axle and wheel spacers needed to fit (several people offer this).

Some people have used different bearings in order to use Gen1 axle but they are small bearings, hard to come by, and lots of weight on the smaller bearing.

98 99 wheel factory 310mm rotors easiest to use

94 96 wheel came with 295mm rotors, bigger rotor needed to work correctly

Talking with Brembo they found the following two 310mm rotors for the 94 96 wheel; 86 vfr750 or 93 up CB1000 (the big one)
Researching for the CBR1000 I found two part numbers that looked correct to me Galfer # DF692CW, and EBC # MD1056

Brutal Performance has an adapter to mount a Gen1 Hayabusa rotor to the 94 CBR900 wheel (this was my choice due to having rotor)

I found a person (Turboguy on Psychobike) that had used a 98-99 front rotor with success on his earlier model wheel (93-96)

Brakes
Stock Gen1 brakes used with 5.5mm spacers and longer bolts to keep everything aligned and working correctly.

Tire
Tire I used (Pirelli 110/70/16 m/c 52s Angel Scooter) was purchased from Duane at Cycle Concepts.

I don't know why the last picture is upside-down.
