They should.
As Garth used the same on he had in his 1st gen onto his 4th.

And 1st thru 3rd all rears are interchangeable

I think there was some custom spacer requirements on Shawns' (Garth's) bike.

The Gen 3 wheels look better admittedly, but they are heavier by about 500gm per wheel. Personally, I'd either get BST Carbon wheels, Marchesini/Carrozeria wheels.....or leave the stock wheels on. But I wouldn't fit Gen 3 wheels.

Melburnians - if you need your car or bike repaired and/or painted, feel free to get in touch. I happen to know a guy.....

But the rotors aren't interchangeable.

Doesn't the gen 4 have wheel speed sensors? Not sure how they mount but might be something to consider. I could be completely wrong on this though.

If I had a Gen 4. I would want to put em on just because they look better. At 500gm heavier, I dunno if Id do it still. Wish someone would make some light 6 spokes like Gen. 1-3 for the Gen. 4. They just look better than the 3 spokes. lol

Yes, it lines up with the rear rotor.

I ask because I may sale my Gen 3 Race Bike and buy another Gen 4 bike to Race, and I have 2 Extra rear rims.

The amount of time saved having extra rims is great, and if doing long endurance races like we did 2 weeks ago, You have to have the rims and tires ready to go on.

You are right about adding more rotating mass to the wheel i wouldnt want to do that, but Im sure its hard as hell to find gen 4 rims on ebay.

One weekend I dont have anything to do Ill pull them both down and check it out. I was seeing if someone already did it so i could save some time :)
