Calling the all knowing...wheels?

I need some help from the all knowing powers that are...(ok enough ass kissing)

Seriously I've been looking for a front wheel for my 2000 GSXR 750, eBay has tons of them and alot of them say they are interchangeable with my bike, now I don't have the time or money to mess this up, but I've also found some wheels to be much less $$$ just because they don't say GSXR or hayabusa

Does anyone know of which wheels ARE compatible with my bike? I would like to get GIXXR wheel but if another bike wheel is to be had for cheaper I'm not opposed to it

:buell:

I did a bunch of research on this awhile back. From what I remember the GSXR, TL, TLR and Busa all run the same diameter axle. You will will probably have to make to minor shimming adjustments to get the wheel centered and rotors centered in the calipers.

There is all kinds of info out there about people going the other way. Upgrading TL,TLR,SV and Busa`s to gixxer setups. I would just research that and use the specs to figure out if you can go with a cheaper wheel.

Below is the holy grail of Suzuki fork swapping info, ever gixxer owner
needs a copy of this also.
