Default 97 killing me

it all starts with a trip to the shop to get plugs, oil change,air filter, carb and jet check, front and rear tires. when they tell me the bearing are gone in the front and rear. so i get them to ordered. they get in and they are not the problem it is that the rims are wallowed out form being chromed at some point in time. so i get on ebay to find some new ones. ebay sell states they are 97/98 rims. they get in and we put them on to find out that the front rotors don't want to mount. so i look at the rim an it is 98 but it has a stamp of the 12 month on it so i guess it is the 99 rotor that it needs. so i call the guy that sold me the rims to see if he has the rotors to sell me. he tells me that he has some Honda 900 rotors that will fit that rim for the old ones in swap. is this true????? sorry for my spelling hope spell check did its job.
o yea i just got this bike rode it 2 times.

p.s im looking for some rotors if one of you guys have some laying around for sell. [/align]

Didn't want to hex myself put my 07 in today for its 1,000 K service but have done 1,300 Ks but all good $ 61.00 Later seems to go better as I pooped the front wheel unintentionally coming home. Just think of it this way hugashe I paid $ 16,400 for mine so when yours is all fixed you will pay a lot less than mine eh and you will still have a great bike ?
