Default cbr 954 wheel swap compatability ??

Hi all,
I'm wanting to do a wheel swap on my 02 954 rr.
I have done lots of research on it and have found the rc51
to be the best upgrade plus they look just like moto GP bike rims.

I like the sp1 6 spoke rims better than the sp2 5 spokes.
My question has any one have a reference of fit and compatibility ?

Or know what rims will fit without machining. i'm ok with using different spacers and bearings.
Just curious if other wheels will fit without machining exe...
Yamaha r1 ?
Kawasaki ?
Suzuki ?
Honda vfrs?
Thanks to any help offered
Ryan

I don't know about Yamaha.

Kawi's - you'll run into issues with the front rotors and the rear will need some machining.

Suzuki - There's no point as it's basically the same 3 spoke type of rim.

VFR - Yeah, you'll need some machining to fit an SSSA on there.


RC51 rims are the easiest swap on the 954. It's as close to a real swap as it's going to get. The rear is a direct swap, IIRC. I think the front just needs some different spacers, not sure though.

RC51 SP1 or SP2's are the easiest swap. Here is a thread on how to do it, post #8 and #12 explain how it is done.

rc51 wheels swapped onto a 03 954, is it doable and easy? - Honda Motorcycles - FireBlades.org


The SP1's swap over the same way but weigh much more than the SP2's.


If you want to swap over something different it is going to take a lot of work to do so and that is why I plan to do the SP1/2 swap in the future.

I have not seen a sp1 front wheel for sale in a while. I have seen a couple sets of sp2 wheels for sale recently.

Front or rear? Either way - it shouldn't matter, they're the exact same forks/front end. Spacers are the same. And the rear should be identical too (as far as spacing). Rims from the 929 - '07 1000rr are interchangeable.


Why isn't it going? Maybe someone used that wheel with a different size axle for a different bike so the ID of the bearings are smaller or something - causing your axle not to go through it.

It is the rear.I replaced the wheel bearings and it seems the spacers are not letting the wheel clear the caliper mount.
