Question >> ZX-10R Intergenerational Rim Swaps? <<

So I've run quite a few searches here, and come up with nothing. I reckon my question all boils down to the interchangeability of the different generations' OEM rims. I'm in no financial position to buy magnesium or even aftermarket aluminum, and I see the Gen 5 has shaved at least a couple pounds off their set of rims as to my Gen 1. Can a Gen 4 or 5's rims be matted to the Gen 1, or is there a common budget rim upgrade (a`la ZX-6R/14R front caliper upgrade)?

Question >> ZX-10R Intergenerational Rim Swaps? <<

No one knows if either the 4th or 5th Gen's rims can mate to a 1st Gen? I imagine the rotors & sprocket would need to be swapped, but do the rims fit?

Thumbs up

As always, big thanks to SKY-D, whom let me know Gen2 & Gen3 will fit the Gen1, but the fronts rims need different bearings & spacers to fit the different diameter axle. You basically need Gen 2/3 rim with Gen1 bearings, axle, and spacers.
