My Gen 4 also came with BST's


Also has the OEM wheels as well.

I'd rather use the BST's than the OEM's.

To note, they can take the mileage and abuse.

I appreciate the input, how long have you run the BSTs for? Noticeable difference from the stock wheels or fairly minor?
I've run them for almost two years now?

There is a noticeable difference in my opinion.

I am a bit more cautious of potholes, where there may be...... Other than that, I just run them.

I am cautious of who works on the strip and fit though. That much is certain.


Other than that, a ZX14 clocked over 120 000 kms already on the street with BST's. No issues.

Solid choice! Beside the performance benefit, the 5 spokes look so much better than 3 as well.

You should be able to market your wheels to the 5th & 6th generation crowd as well. Your 4th gen front wheel is forward compatible with a few small parts and the rear wheel is identical and a direct swap. See details in this thread here: Gen 5: 2016-20 - Gen 4 front wheel to Gen 5 kit

This makes me happy.

In the future, I may refit my Gen 4 to Oem and sell.

I'd like to keep the BST's.

If it means I can perhaps take on a Gen 5 and retrofit the BST's to that bike, I'll be a happy camper.

Some useless information.

Just followed up with the OEM manufacturer here - Blackstone Tek.

They're based in Johannesburg.

According to what I read or heard somewhere - a scan is recommended after seven years.

This is actually incorrect. The only time BST would suggest or advise a scan is if the wheels had suffered a hit - accident/pothole etc et al.

The gentleman at BST said that there is nothing to worry about as long as the wheel tech changing tires doesn't screw up.

Also to note, the cush drives on the hub are a consumable item and should be checked every few thousand kms - this is the same for the cush drive in the OEM rear wheel any way.

Also:

Currently they have wheels with DOT's as early as 2003 that are still running with no issues.

The DOT's on my wheels are 2017 for instance, so I'm sure we have nothing to worry about.
