    went to the local yamaha/honda/ducati/KTM dealer...

    well, i stopped by there during lunch to pickup something i ordered.. and i noticed something... on their newest ducati sitting there.. was a super sexxay rear wheel.

    ignoring the rest of the bike, i looked it over very carefully...

    anyone know how to put a 1098 wheel on a hawk?

    figure out what the differance on the off set is and shim or machine has needed, that would be a start. only thing left is making sure the drive pins and center nut are compatable.

    a wile back i saw a nice set of custom made rims for a older 997 on ebay. and thought "only if i knew the offset differance" never fallowed thru though.

      short of walking in there with some tools and a ruler.... any ideas on where id find the offset?

      thinking about it.. they're both center nut designs... so really the drivepins and offset are the only thing thats stopping me .. and id bet the drivepin pattern can be machined into the hawk spindle... leaving just the offset to worry about..
      that... and i bet that rim costs more then its weight in gold.

        thinking about it.. it has a 190/55 tire.. a 180 would still fit on that, right?

        in anycase, they look ultralightweight.. obviously i couldnt pick them up, but they're made by marchesini (if i spell that right, someone give me a cookie) so they probly dont weigh what they look.

          See sig.

          oh and the 5-spoke duc and 10 spoke duc marchesini mags are only about 5lbs lighter than the bros wheel...lighter material but they're a bigger wheel. Luckily the weight savings in is the rim, not the spokes, where it'll have the most effect.

          My kits allow real lightweight wheels made for the duc to be mounted up.

          A 180 tire and you're going to be looking at +3~5mm offset. Not tremendous and you can easily compensate...even if you're a hard core racer. A 190 is +15mm easily and that's a bit too much. 170 will mount to a 6" wheel easily enough and a 170/65 will be pretty close to a +/-0 offest.

            Anyone know off hand how much the stock Hawk wheels weigh? I'd like to double check my earlier measurements.

              if i can fit a 170 on that rim, i would.. i dont need a wider tire... i want to keep the nimble flickability of the hawk.... but that wheel just looks really really cool.

                Hit up Ducati.ms and see if anyone has a 10-spoker lying about. The wheel's not new...it's been used on every Senna since the 916. Also on just about every MV Augusta (well a similar wheel anyway).

                My kits are $560 shipped to the states if you supply your own wheel. Come with lighter rotor, lighter spindle, and a way way waaayyyyyyy lighter cush assembly and I usually include a near new sprocket...depends on what I can source when I go fishing...

                  i was just about to ask you if that thing even had a cushdrive.. that pic on your site looks almost like a direct drive setup....

                    It's got a cush ... may not look like it but it's there and it's a LOT better than that monster Honda puts on the elf bikes.

                      that Senna 10spoke rim isnt the same as the rim i was looking at.. the rim i was looking at was a machined rim, not cast.. and the spokes were Y -like.... not straight.

                          misread a second...edit...it's the same wheel.



                          Been around for over a decade now. I think the only thing that has changed over the last 14 years is that the recessions arent as prominent or have been eliminated (I haven't seen the NEWEST stock in person). Advances in the alloy has made it stronger.

                            And you didn't buy them? Not very intellegent...or very intellegent..hard to say. They were probably stolen but the guy also may have just been a junky and needed a fix mondo pronto. A single 10-spoker runs $500~600 pretty easy.
