What wheels?

Im looking at getting new wheels for my 919. No real reason, i just want change and looking around.

Does anyone have any suggestions? or know of any specific wheels that will work well with the bike?

I found this r6 front, but not sure if it will work.

Will they bolt on? No. Can they be made to fit? Of course. If you are, or happen to know, a good machinist who has done this sort of thing before then you can make anything fit anything else given sufficient infusions of time, or cash, or more usually a whole lot of both. Trust me, I know first hand the gyrations and costs of such a project.

Do a search on this subject and you will find a fair amount of information pertaining to which wheels will more or less bolt right on, and which can be made to fit.

Generally, if the whole point is to have something different then go for it, but if you're looking for a performance advantage your money is better spent elsewhere, specifically rider training and track days / racing.

If it has already been done, it is safe to assume it is possible to do it.
On the other hand, if it has not been done never assume it is impossible to do it.
