New Wheels?





#1
I'm new to the Busa world (and the bike world too)... I'm getting sick of the black stock rims... How much should I expect to pay for an upgrade, and how could it effect my handling, gas mileage, acceleration, etc.?

About $2200 to $3000 for a pair of aftermarket wheels (Oz, Carrozzeria, etc.).
Handling....major upgrade (turn in/flickibility, unsprung weight, braking, suspension compliance, etc.).
gas mileage....probably not measurable.
Acceleration.....sure feels faster! (doubt that sheer measureable acceleration is changed).

Don't forget the mental comfort knowing they're on there!

Go with something like Carrozzeria. They are a good bang for the buck. At one time, they were offering wheels and rotors for around $2,000.

Also check with the sponsors, I'm sure they can find you some good deals and good customer service.

what wheels are these? they look great!
Thanks, they are Dymag 7 spokes.

I got them from Oncycles when they dropped the line for a steal. GixerHP got his there too.
Not sure who's the new distributor for them.

Get with Goldenchild, he may know or be able to help with another option.

Raydog love the pics of the bike. It looks sick and fast as hell even when standing still. Can't wait to ride with you again in Reno. I learned alot from talking with you and just watching you ride. All you guys showed what a 'Busa could really do in the twisties.

Can somebody give me a price for BST wheels?
Figure around $3,750

I don't know if that includes bearings, spacers or if they are made for the Busa rear sprocket. You really need to know what else you'll need to install any new wheel. I think Marchesini sends everything for $2,445 and Gale requires at least you use a AFAM rear sprocket.

Get the July issue of Super streetbike, they have a great list of Custom Wheels for Sports Bikes :beerchug:

I read the July issue and now know what I want. I just want to get the best pricing and as you have mentioned understand what are the hidden costs. BST list prices on the web are around $3500. My Busa is handling better with the mods I have made but it is still a step behind my ZX14.

raydog, we have the same color scheme!!

I still think wheels are too expensive, I'd rather spend that 2000 on something mechanical. How do you even go about obtaining a sponsorship??

Wow, you have a clean 2000....I don't think there were as many of the Maroon/Gunmetal Grey units imported. Raydog
