Hi all.
My first post coming up, been a forum member for almost a year now. Reading posts every day, learning alot about the rod and refreshing my english. This is a fantastic forum. I ride a 02 VRSCA anodized with solid wheels and 23 000 km on it. Thats about 14500 miles. I`m considering changing the wheels before the next riding season. Quite tired of fighting side wind. Besides of that I love my bike. Anyone with a tip where to look for wheels ?
When I find out how to, I will put some pics in my gallery.

Buy HD wheels, IMHO, they are certified by DOT here in the USA. Not all aftermarket wheels are tested for strength.

5 spoke 08 stock wheels

The 08 night rod wheels retail for less than 300 and look great. I will post pics once mine are installed.

UPDATE: They arrived and here's a pic of them. Will have front wheel installed tomorrow.

If you purchase from Chicago Harley, they are 20% retail for a whopping $220. And they are lightweight:

Front bare wheel = 12 lbs 11 oz
rear bare wheel = 16 lbs 5 oz

I ordered the bearings but hope that my stock ones can be recycled as I only have 1K miles on my bike.

See this thread for pics: http://www.1130cc.com/forums/showthread.php?t=75826&page=5

yes the 08 wheels are the best bang for the $$...I would have ordered some if I had not just bought a different set.

Still cant believe the price...keep in mind you have to by a bearing set for both wheels...I think they are like $65 per set. So for $325 ish you can have the lightest stock wheels that also look awesome.

You got the money I am sure Kosman could figure out a way to widen them. HAHA A 08 wheel at 8.5 wide would be tities!

Are the bearings for these wheels different since they have ABS capabilities? I just got a set of Reactors and the bearings were 17.88 a piece.

I had not looked at the rocker wheels...nice wheel (need em in black lol). 18" rear and 19" front...cant imagine the difference will be any more than mounting a 240 now...spacers and maybe a new belt, maybe a pully.
