Last year at my local bike meet there were a bunch of blokes all on R1's all talking the talk. I thought I would follow them out as it could be an interesting ride. I wasnt wrong, first corner we we came to the soppy twats all hit the breaks and I nearly went in to the back of them.

hey CBRRRT, I am trying todo this but have come up a bit short on space, I am trying to fit a 18x7.5 wheel on an early vfr 750 arm. I got 82mm bolts and 30mm spacers, the tyre dude said that to be safe you want the bolts todo at least 6 rotations but with this the wheel is fouling on the arm. have i missed something?? someone suggested that I could space out the spindle? any ideas?

I dont think the 18" wheel will fit on a 750 arm mate, I think it will only go on the 800 arm. The Texas two
R3voltn1 and Alien594 both have 18 x 7.5's on their 929's

How much is it fouling the arm by mate? If we are only talking about a couple of mm then add to the spacer as I dont think you'll notice any difference in handling, unless you are Valentino Rossi or the like.

When I first fitted my 750 arm it was negative 8mm out and I never noticed anything.

I would be interested to know what offset your wheel is, and how far out the spacing is matey.

I'm running vfr 800 with 18" x 7.5 wheel I think it's 40mm offset and 1.25 " spacer on my tlr and wheel is offset like 1/2" so I need to get smaller wheel prob 6.5 or 7"wheel and smaller spacer to center the wheel
My wheel will be for sale cheap

I also have 240 mm Shinto tire and when mounting use lots of tire soup and ratchet strap to seat the bead
Ratchet strap helped a lot to seat it

mines on the 750 arm

If I remember right though... I had a bit of panic set in, when I ordered & paid for the wheel. I was so busy consentrating on widths n offsets etc that I stupidly forgot to check diameter

But just to prove it's always better too be Lucky than Smart


As long as I fall, I don't hit the ground. As long as I fall, I'm safe & sound.
