Default F3 900RR wheel swap

Ok, so I would like to put 6 spoke wheels on my F4i track bike. I think the 3 spoke wheels are horrible. Anyway, thru some deductive reasoning on Ronayers.com, I figured out that the 900RR rear axle size and F3 front axle size are the same as the F4i. So the only issue now is spacing. I would think the front would be a direct fit, what do you guys think? As for the rear, maybe a spacer would need to be machined? That is really all I can think. It should be pretty easy. Any input? Anyone try this? If no, I just might try it and see how it goes.

You might be able to convince one of the 900RR owners to measure for you. Go here and ask nicely!

Not sure about the front wheel but the back 900rr does fit.
Check this thread for 6 spoke options guy used a 900rr rear wheel and a vfr front

Ok, cool. Glad to know about the VFR. I am pretty sure I can make both fit without any complications. I will let everyone know.

This has been done a few times before and looks great, problem is your doing this on your trackbike. The 6 spoke rims are way heavier then the 3 spokes so you'll be loosing performance, not ideal for a trackbike.

Ugh, why do the 3 spokes have to look so GAY!!!!!!!!! Why couldnt Honda and Suzuki have been like Yamaha and Kawi and gone with good looking rims?

What is the weight differnce? A VFR front wheel looks so slim and stuff. Bummer that it weighs more.
