I don't know much about swapping rims. But since no one seems to know, I'll just try my best to help you. First off, you'd have to figure out how much wider or smaller the rims would be from the R6. Secondly, you would most likely have to swap out the front forks or custom fabricate the brake calipers from the R6 to fit on the 600RR forks. Same with the rear, you'd have to modify or replace the rear caliper as well. You'd also have to check to see if the pre-existing axle from the 600RR would fit perfectly with the R6 bearings.

It all seems too much work just to have five spokes. I'd save all that trouble and go buy Marchesini rims that are compatible with the 600RR.
