Turns out when I got my BST CF wheels, the rear wheel was a 6" wheel instead of 5.75". Yesterday I noticed that the wheel rim was starting to rub on the swing arm. The great folks at Motowheels will exchange it for a 5.75", however its going to be a week or two. In the mean time, I'm going to have to put the stock rear wheel on. I have a track lesson scheduled for Monday and I cant miss it. Will there be any problems with having mismatched wheels,( CF front, stock rear), besides looking bizzare ?

I'm always off topic, must have ADD.

What kind of fairing is on karen's bike? Looks like one of the Givi's from motostrano, but I can't really tell. And is she running clip-ons? There doesn't seem to be much room for error with the small slot on the side.

aside from looking a bit goofy, nope... should be fine riding. bummer about the fitment issue.
The fitment issue is a bummer, but could be worse if Motowheels were not the cool folks that they are.

I still think that even with the 5.75" wheel, I'm going to have problems if my chain stretches too much. No one said it was going to be easy ;)

Thanks Monster H. I wonder how weird the stock wheel is going to feel after the CFs. I guess I'll find out !
