Hi you couldn't be more wrong, the OEM 3 spoke wheels a cast - heavy wheels - the marchesini are billet, the OEM are much heavier, confirmed after putting on my scale - don't know where you get you information.Did you keep the stock marchesini wheels? They weigh the same as ZX10R stock wheels. Kind of disappointing for a $28k bike
Marchesini RR vs BST vs OEM ZX10r WHEELS - YouTubeHi you couldn't be more wrong, the OEM 3 spoke wheels a cast - heavy wheels - the marchesini are billet, the OEM are much heavier, confirmed after putting on my scale - don't know where you get you information.
Wow, too bad you can't afford an zx-10rr, oh yeah if you think that youtube video is proof you are to weak to believe yoiu can;t afford the zx10rr
What does affording it have to do with this? I have one and when I changed my tires I was surprised by how heavy these wheels are, I expected something lighter. Ive read about em being the same weight several times already and that video seems pretty conclusive to me. I still dont mind, at least the do look nicer
Cope. You're wasting your money unless you need that 400 extra rpm for high level racing. Otherwise it's basically a ZX10R that costs $28k. Go on Kawasaki's website. The first thing they mention in the RR's description is the marchesini wheels. Same weight as the R. I'd take a Gen 4 or 5 with a Akrapovic system and BST wheels over your bike.
Odd cap? They are clearly heavier... so I'd take the stock wheels and they are cheaper to replace if you go down. The RR had a complete engine overhaul so I wonder how much that will benefit! hopefully more than 2whp.
