Finally found an 8 spoke!

Recommended Posts

I finally found a straight 8 spoke 3rd gen rear rim on eBay. Price was $260 shipped. Will need to be powdercoated to match front (thinking black unless I do both). 

 

I felt the price was pretty fair considering what they go for nowadays and that they are increasingly hard to find.

 

Will be installing on my 5th gen with new rear tire this winter. 

 

More pics to come!

 

Happy motoring!

What is the weight difference between this wheel and the original? Also is it 5 direct swap?

An 8 spoker is lighter than a 4th gen OEM. Not by much but I lost the images on them on the scales.

I weighed my 8 spoke and it's about 1/2 pound lighter than 5th and 6th 5 spoke. Also lighter than the 1st Gen CB1000R, IIRC.

Good on you!

 

I occasionally check ebay... it seems like there are a handful of sellers charging frankly offensive prices for these.
