900rr wheel question

I have a chance to get a 900rr rear wheel, I've heard 96-99 bolt right up but the guy thinks its from a 95, will this still bolt directly in to my 03 919 swing arm?

Thanks

-Brian

Yes, any 18X5.5 Honda 900RR rear wheel will be a direct bolt up. I am running a 95 on my 02 right now.

I'm getting worried Brian - I hope you're not going to widen it, chrome it and roll on a 300 section tyre .............

....haven't figured it out yet....but to be honest....have yet to find anything that really holds up to frequent tire changes.....

If I go the normal professional paint route it will probably be a special paint & then baked on with heating lamps......

I went with powdercoating. A guy I have used in the past for painting wanted $300 to blast both wheels and paint. The powdercoater took $220 to chemically strip and coat. They do bike wheels all the time and didn't recommend blasting. Something with the pores of the aluminum affecting the powder after blasting. If I had gone the blasting route he only wanted $20 ea so the total would have been $140. They turned out really nice.

Everything I have heard states that. Try cleaning your paint with Acetone!!

I scrubbed my chain with kerosene and a tooth brush (which worked like magic). The kerosene runoff splattered my wheel during the first ride. I tried several cleaners with no luck, so I tore into it with acetone. Wiped off pretty easily and it, along with most other organic solvents are completely ineffectual to powdercoating.
