2003+ 5 spoke wheels install on a 2000?
Does anyone know if it is possible to fit the newer 5 spoke R6 wheels on the older bikes like 1999-2002 R6 that came stock with the 3 blade rims? I know the front rotors off the 2000 R6 has 6 bolts where the 2003+ R6 rotors only have 5 bolts. So you would have to use the newer rotors for sure on the front, and maybe same when it comes to the rear wheels you would also have to use the same year rotor and sprocket. But outside of that would the wheel fit between the same forks and rear swing arm and use same axles so that you would be able to install the newer wheels on the older bike. I am wanting to know if the calipers would still line up with the newer rotor on the newer wheel and same for the rear set up would the newer wheel fit and line up? If the dimensions are the same width wise and location of where the rotors sit, what about the rotor diameter so that they line up and sit correctly with in the calipers so the brake pads connect with rotors as needed when braking? Are the axles the same size and interchangeable, if not which year axles could I use to make the 2003+ R6 5 spoke rims to fit the 1999-2002 R6 bike?
