91 VFR750 FRONT & 98 CBR900 REAR WHEELS WORK

Can't seem to get the "6 spoke wheel" mod out of my head.

Anyway, anybody know if these will work? Pretty sure the rear will.

98 99 Honda CBR 900 RR CBR900RR Rear Wheel Rear Rim Clean 1998 1999 CBR 900 | eBay

OK, nobody better buy them out from under me......

As for the front.. I have no idea.

Like stated the rear is plug and play. The front i aldo don't know, but here is an idea....

The F3 swap was originally used by the 900rr crowd to get away from the OEM 16" wheel setup. So google search for swap info about a 900rr with the vfr front wheel. If it works on the 900rr odds are it can be made to work on the 919.

On the rear swap did you use the 919 sprocket carrier and cush drive bumpers? The 919 and the 900RR use the same wheel bearings and spacer but the 93-95 900RR shows a completely different sprocket carrier from the 96-98 900RR

Didn't know there was any difference. I used the stock sprocket carrier from the 919, on the 900rr rear wheel.

The part numbers are different but I have no idea what the actual differences are, I know the 93-95 900RR uses a different bearing and press in collar for the sprocket carrier

Just reuse the 919 components & any 900rr rear wheel works. The rear is super simple, don't over think it.

Got excited and jumped the gun!! Looks sweet man. Good luck with the swap.
I was thinking after the dibs call that you might be just showing not selling. My bad!

My RC parts will be here today! Waiting in the window like a kid at x-mas, I called into work and said I would be late, important business at hand ...... Hahaha!

I will weigh and compare the SP1 to my F3 setup for reference.

Someone should try out this VFR setup, its a possible solution to the worlds current F3 front wheel shortage.

IIRC they're using both the VFR and the F3 wheels on the 900RR which means they should be similar but I don't know for sure

Thats what I was thinking. Someone should drop by fireblades & ask about 900rr fitment.

There is a guy at work with a beat old 900rr. It has a 17" F3 wheel on it.... That rim is worth more then the bike its on.

Did a quick search, they're recomending 96-97 VFR or F3. 94-97 VFR front wheels should be the same according to Partzilla

There's a good deal on a strait vfr wheel on eBay. I think it's a 96 wheel and they have the f3 listed as a fit for it. What should I do?? It's cheap compared to f3 wheels.

Whats the worst that could happen? you'd have a 96 VFR wheel to re-sell if it doesn't work

Got it for $170 shipped with a tire on it. So we will know in a few weeks if it fits.

Now what else do I need as for spacers?? Hoping my rotors will work too.

The 94-98 VFR and the F3 use the same rotors so no problem there

Nice man! Good pick up. The 919 has a different rotor bolt pattern, so they won't fit.

I'd have them pop the tire off if they can, unless you really want to use a used tire. It'll save a bunch on shipping to the great white north

Ok so f3 rotors are ok?? They should be easy to find and I can sell my rotors.
Just asked them to pop the tire off voodoo. We will see what happens and if I get a better price on shipping.

Took the plunge................

Just bought a 96 VFR front and 99 900rr rear. A couple of questions.

Going to replace the bearings and seals, you guys use OE?
I've read I will need F3/Vfr rotors for the front. Rear rotor works ok?
Is it true I need one F3/Vfr axle spacer for the front? If so, which one?
What are you guys using for caliper shims?

THANKS Paul

Check out BOSS BEARING for the bearings, they seem to have good pricing.

Helimech should be able to point you in the right direction for spacers and shims

The rear is 100% plug and play. Remove 919 rear wheel, remove all the components and reinstall everything onto the 900rr.

You do only need one of the F3 acle spacers but I don't remember which one. Caliper shimming u can use stainless washers, just measure to verify stack up thickness is the same.

I will be pulling my front end of in the next few days and can get you all the measurements and specs.

Hope you don't mind Heli, but you sent this to me in a PM a while ago when I was collecting parts to do my wheel swap.

Hey man,

You caught me at a good time since my front end is torn down to clean and freshen up my calipers with some new shiny bits.

The 900rr rear is a 100% bolt on swap. All the 919 stuff installs and away you go. That parts is easy.

The F3 front is a bit more challenging. You will need the F3 axle spacers & some spacers for the calipers.

Use the F3 axle spacers in conjunction with one of the 919 ale spacers, on the 919 axle to get the wheel centered up between the fork legs.

Next you will have to mock up your calipers and shim them with spacers to get them centered over the F3 rotors. I am using CBR954RR calipers and had to shim the L/H side 3.45mm and the right 4.15mm, you can use some stainless washers or have some spacers turned on a lathe.

Here is a pic from another WT thread of the spacer setup to get you started.

That helps a bunch...........THANKS

Didn't know 954 calipers would work on the 919. Are they worth the cost?
