Hi all
a few months backI bought a pair of used BST wheels for a project bike that I'm
beginning to build. The wheels were sold as R6 and have a 2010date on them. Now that I have finaly found some nice R6 13s forks, I find the wheel spindle is too small by 3mm. spindle 22mm bearing ID 25mm. I'm not clued up on all the diffrent models of R6 and what parts are interchangeable. It appears the wheel is not R6 and may well be of another bike completely. Looking at it, my best solution would be to have anothe spindle made to suit. I looked into changing the bearings but 25x47 bearings would also be 2mm deeper requiring the hub to be machined out. Can anyone cast a light on what I have got and any possible solution.

Aparently the wheel uses a pair of captive spacers, which were missing. I'm having a pair made up to suit.
