Braking CBR 1000 wheels on 919?

Hi everybody, i desperately need help because i've got a sweet deal for a set of brand new Braking CBR 1000 (they are for a 2007 i think) wheels from a local dealer. I got the RC51 Sp2 forks so was looking for a decent Sp1 6 spoke wheel to use with a CBR 900 rear wheel but couldn't find a good one. Recently i read a lot of posts from the forum but i'm still not sure if it is possible to do the swap by using collars or spacers ?

As long as the rotor spacing is the same as the RC ones and you can fit spacers on there to make it happen........it's do-able. The bearings would just have to be swapped for ones the same as the RC to allow the axle if they aren't already the same. I haven't personally had one of those wheels in my possession, but I don't see why you couldn't make it work

Are you talking about the Braking B-One wheelset? Those are an incredible deal!

As mentioned above, you should just need the proper bearings to match the wheel and the axle, and make sure the rotor diameter is the same. You can use thin washers to shim the calipers if they're not perfectly centered, and a machine shop can make wheel spacers to fit.
I really hope that wheel deal works out for you! I want to see photos when you're done!
