Anyone know the F3/919 front wheel spacers combo?

Trying to put the front wheel on and can't figure out the axle/ spacers combo. It's a vfr750 wheel same as the F3

I had to make my own spacer. But there is a combination between the 919 and f3 spacers that work. You may also have to shim your calipers to get the rotors centered.

If I remember right, I needed a spacer exactly .45 inches wide on the right side of the wheel.

...on my Droid.

Picking up a front wheel this weekend. Will definitely be curious on the answer to this as well.

Everything works perfectly.


Check out this thread. It's where I got all the info for my wheel swap.

I had to stack two of the spacers to make it work. But it did work. So the Vfr750 spacers work also

Any pics? How does the rotor & caliper alignment look?

So I'm needing to find the spacers for the f3 wheel. Looks like I could just get by with just locating one of them and using both 919 spacers. Correct?

Where the OP mentions ...." 4) F3 collar, left or right will work"

I don't believe this is true. The L/H and R/H spacers are different part numbers, and are fairly different in width. If I remember correctly I used a L/H F3 spacer, the R/H F3 spacer was way to wide to fit in between the fork legs.

I picked up a F3 front axle and both spacers off ebay for $25 shipped, that way I had every possible combo covered between the 919 and F3 spacers.


Here is a good deal on the axle spacer combo, plus check out the pics and you can see the width differenece between the spacers.

So I got it all together and the distance from my rotor to fork leg is different on one side than the other only by a mm or 2. Does this sound correct? I used the proper spacers. I just installed new wheel bearings. Maybe I didn't get them seated all of the way? I also had to space my caliper one washer more on the one side that has the larger gap between the rotor and fork leg

Here is what my axle and spacer setup looks like. Isn't this correct? I have f4i forks if that matters at all.

That looks like the right spacer stack up. I wouldn't worry about that 1mm difference. I had to use different spacer thickness's for the L/H and R/H calipers also.

I will take a few measurements off mine tonight that you can reference, but yours looks/sounds good to me.

Awesome. Thank you. Now for the rotors. I have some slight rubbing noises while coming to a stop and the pads are tearing up the rotors a bit. I didnt use new pads on the ebc pro light rotors I got with the wheel when I purchased it. So its either the pads, caliper alignment, or warped or bent rotors. I can feel a bit of drag spinning the wheel by hand with the calipers on. Any thoughts?

The old pads will have to seat to the new rotors so this will take a little while. I had some slight dragging on mine and found that cleaning and spinning the rotor buttons cleared it up.

Also use a set of verniers to measure the thickness of the washers you use as shims, not all washers are the same thickness and could lead to the caliper/pads being cocked a bit. Honestly as long as the rotors aren't dragging on the caliper body.... the shimming is fine.

Ok I will try to get them buttons spinning again before I buy new rotors. Thanks again..They brake well so I really don't think they are warped. No pulsating

Also pull the calipers back off and clean the pad sliders & pistons, then fully sink the pistons. Keep it simple, probably not warped rotors. You just to tweak it a touch, and reset the system.


U running stock 919 calipers/master & OEM lines?

This is the tool/setup I use for the buttons, works great and easy to do.

Is there any weight saving in going to the F3 Front/900rr wheel combo?

I think the F3/900RR wheel combo is heavier but can't confirm that

It is lighter. Not sure by how much thought. It feels significantly lighter judging by the way Clorox's bike feels now

I I just got done doing the f3 conversion on my 919. Instead of doing the (axle > 919 spacer > wheel > f3 spacer > 919 spacer > axle bolt) route that everyone else did, I tried switching the first 919 spacer and f3 spacer and everything lined up perfectly without having to use SS washers for shims on the break caliper bolts. So looking at the wheel from the front (right to left) I put (axle > f3 spacer > wheel > 919 spacer > 919 spacer > axle bolt). Idk if that'd work for everyone , but it lined mine up perfectly.

If you're talking about Clutch lever side to brake side. I did the same combination and still had to use the washers for the brake calipers.

Ya that's how I set it up, I didn't think it'd work for everyone but I figured I'd just let people know to try that combo. Did you want to sell those Kosos? If not lmk so I can order some.

I'll probably hang on to them for now... the price I wanted for them is close to the prices they come new anyway.
