So i'm always thinking when I see other bikes . The R6 / R1 are same wheel up front . The rear is a smaller ( not as wide ) using a 180 series tire . most likely a 5.5 wide rim .
I noticed the 2018 R6 had a sweet axle set up vs chapo's home depot kit . The axle is $43 new , and nut $11 . A entire wheel new is $304 . This might be something to snag off e bay for ten dollars to see if the axle will work. here are photos from today .

My questions would at first be, do the new wheels even fit the busa? As far as I know it’s the 04-09 wheels that fit. I would love to go to a dealer and get a measurement on the axle diameter.

Not yet, I'm juggling too many projects. I'm thinking I will have to get bushings machined or make some. I'm thinking of getting with unit 5 to get a whole setup machined to mount front and rear.
