Well I got my BST CF wheels on my S4R, see below for links to the pics.
As for a review, first the good news: The wheels really look the dogs bollocks and more importantly they really enhanced the bikes performance, especially in turning and tracking. It now takes noticebly less steering input to initiate a turn, almost steering by thought....this was evident right off the bat. The bike seems a bit faster on acceleration as well.
The bad news (not so bad actually)--the rear whell did not fit exactly and required the rear brake caliper to be ground a bit to clear the spokes--I was very hesitant to have this done, but decided to go for it and I'm glad I did.
Here is a pic of the side of the bike:

Thanks to Martin from Motowheels for his help along the way !

Now even the caliper is "custom"! Let us know how different it rides/handles.

Performance much? S4R and an EVO too? I HATE YOU

Ok now thats out. Those wheels are great. Definetely on my wish list. They look really nice on your bike too. I'm sure you'll enjoy the cleaning duties alot more too:). Enjoy! One day maybe I'll catch up to your performance-ness.

Nice wheels.

I love the white wheels on the s4. One of the reason I like the blue/white s4r so much.

Thanks Patrick.
Noticed my EVO eh ? Yes, I've been a bad boy this year. I got some unexpected $$ and spent it all on toys :). Actually the EVO is a great car, not as much fun as a bike, but if you have to cage, its not too bad.

Thanks Strati--- Next is defintly pipes--As soon as I find out the PCIII works on an S4R, I'm going to get a full system. I did order the Termi slipons, but I dont think they will be available for some time...I'd rather have a full system anyways.

You know, I liked the white wheels also, but they get so dirty and are kind of a pain to clean--also the CFs really do enhance performance.

You should change the S-h-i-t-s-u-b-i-s-h-i into a Skyline Gtr R34........ 8)

Unfortunately, GTR's are not factory available in the US. Evo or STI are the only games in town.

You can buy skyline's from importers though, about 70000 i think.

Now we are getting off topic, back to feesible things like BST carbon fiber wheels
