Update: I bought a Gen 1 axle and spacers for my Gen 1 rear wheel. I pulled the brake rotor bolts and re-installed them with the TC ring behind them. Mounted the wheel and spun it by hand with no binds, then turned the bike on and spun it in gear watching the chain to make sure it was tracking straight. All looks good with no TC faults and the speedo reading. I didn't get a spacer made for the caliper bracket yet. I tried pushing it down all the way and couldn't get the caliper to crash into the rotor, but I want to get a spacer made so it can't float.

Edit: Please excuse the terribly dirty bike, stupid rainy season

I fitted Gen 3 wheels to my Gen 4 with a bit of machining on the wheel to use gen 4 axle with captive spaces.
Front was just a straight swap.

I'm very tempted to sell my OEM 3 spoke, buy a set of CZ's...and then maybe convert my spare Gen1 wheels...

How much do you guys think the Gen4 set is worth? Just wheel and bearing..

All that work to put HEAVIER wheels on your bike?

What is the payoff? More rotating mass. Heavier harder to tun in at speed?

^^^ Exactly. If I had a extra set of G1,G2 or G3 rims I'd trade them for the G4s.

PRESENT
11 ZX10R Track/Race
08 ZX10R - Track/Race (was a Ins write-off)
PLUS a few more.

PAST
Way to many to list.

If you are trying to put Gen1 rears on note there ARE differences in offset of Sprocket, Disc & also overall width of rear wheel.
See my previous post Aftermarket Gen1 BST rears wont swap {dimensions included}
Hope that may be of use, Ergo

The overall width of Gen1 wheel inc spacers = 233.70mm
The overall width of Gen4 wheel inc spacers = 231.55mm
So the Gen4 is 2.15mm narrower.

RHS {brake side}
Gen1 from exact centre of wheel to brake rotor mounting face = 75.70mm
Gen4 from exact centre of wheel to brake rotor mounting face = 72.10mm
So the brake caliper must be moved in 3.6mm or rotor out by 3.6mm

LHS {sprocket side}
Gen1 from the outside of sprocket side spacer to sprocket mounting face =27.5mm
Gen4 from the outside of sprocket side spacer to sprocket mounting face =23.85mm
So the sprocket must be mounted 3.65mm away from the mounting face. ie nearer the swingarm.



Hope that may be of use, Ergo
The pics in post #21 are of a G1 rear mounted in my G4. I've done 1 trackday and ~2500 street miles with it mounted. I did a trackday in May with the G4 rear and a slick mounted, then at the end of the day switched to the G1 rear with a street tire and rode 200 miles home. I don't notice any excessive chain or sprocket wear, and my rear brake doesn't drag.

Both wheels fit the same when installing and uninstalling. Neither is super tight or super loose when fitting them into place in the swingarm. When you spin either wheel the chain tracks straight and isn't pulling on one side of the sprocket. 2mm is a decent gap that you would think would make the G1 fit very tight. With the G4 brake caliper I didn't have to change the stock G1 rotor location, it all just fits.
