Hi bro , just replied to your other post , but the '08 and '13 use the same diameter rotor , so the '13 wheel just has the extra bolt location for ABS ring , I am pretty sure . The latest BST should fit straight on , I would ring up Brocks and ask for sure . Any open bolt holes not used ( ABS ) could be plugged with aluminum fastener .Info I've been combing through on Brock's site says the split spoke Rapid TEKs are winners! The front is a few ounces heavier but the rear is over a pound less than the next lightest BST rear which is the original design 6" wide rim for the 08-12 busa.
I cropped this together today. The Gen2 BSTs fair well in the lineup but I wish I could fit the 99-07 standard design front rim to my bike or at least the 2013-19 (I guess Brock was expecting there would be a 2019 busa). Ether that or I would go with a matched set of Rapid TEKs but the Rapid TEK appears to only be made for the 2013 and later bikes.

The R+ is still under consideration because I intend to turbo this beast one day. I don't like the extra weight of the R+ but the higher rating for static load bearing might be needed if I go to big boost. The Rapid Tech 6" rear has a much better static load spec than the 6" standard design...again, wish I could fit a 2013 rim to my 08.
There is also a BST wheel called the Black Mamba. There are no weight specs and it looks pretty heavy for a CF wheel. The Mamba has very good static load specs too.
The 16" front is out because it is heavier and also, I do not want to loose cornering clearance. I'll bet it improves turn in and reduces wheelies but at the cost of running the chin of the lower fairings a half inch closer to the pavement.
Yes, Brock is also selling Rotobox now. I don't think I can get used to those thick spokes.
Well---no not really. LOL I still am spending most of what I earn but that is much better than all of what I earn and then some. It is Beautiful country around here. I will post pics. There are some great roads but I have never seen so much wildlife on the roads in my life! Deer, turkey--I even saw a couple bobcats run across the road. High speed will be risky. There are almost no police but I may have to do LSR to even up the odds with all of these critters about.
I guess my only question right now is, "would it be practical to fit 2013-onwards rims to my 08?" Would I need to install antilock brakes? It looks like the rotor bolt pattern has a wider diameter on the 2013 wheel. Couldn't I just use 2013 rotors and forget about all the other antilock equipment?
The R's I would think being heavy duty race , probably don't even have the ABS allocation , but they are the 5 spoke design . What a lovely way to start the year , with a spanking new set of the best wheels ever conceived !!
