Yes, it does have the same bolt pattern as the cars. You have to use an adapter in order to make it work with the offset of the car wheel. It took me about a week to figure out how to get it centered. The nice part was the VFR practicly bolts right in. The wheel on the other hand took a bit to figure out. that wheel is 17x7 with a 38mm positive offset. In order to keep it centered and off the swingarm, It required a 1" adapter to bolt between the wheel and hub.Candyman said:And... you have a car wheel on the rear?!? Is that based off the fact that the VFR SSS hub has the same bolt pattern as a... Honda or Accord or some such vehicle?
Very carefuly. Seriously though, it becomes a 2 man job to muscel it around the rim. Once you get it on there it takes a shit load of air pressure to get it to bead up. I think we filled it up to 75psi befor it seated. Also, soapy water doesn't cut it for lube. I used spray on axel greese on the bead in order for it to slip into place. We had to strap the wheel to the machine cause The tire literely explodes into place. Greese goes flying everywhere... it's a mess.Howd you get a bike tire on a car rim?
Yup. It's one big spindel that goes through and turns inside big bearings.haelo said:So you needed to move the wheel away from the hub an inch to get everything to line up?
Does the sprocket on the VFR swingarm attach to the hub?
Me too Dude, I'm planing a lh side perimeter brake setup. I know a guy that built his own.929_adam said:<--- JEALOUS! man since i first saw that buell setup with the perimeter brakes i wanted to run that setup. be cool if you had dual perimeter brakes...or mbe just the left side so both your rims would be visible from the right side.
