Nastybutler If you happen to come across any, I'd be most appreciative if you could let me know. [emoji106]

MacBandit That makes sense. Yeah the Forged wheels are a bit lighter. The Magneseum wheels are significantly lighter as you found. Be aware that the forged magnesium wheels have a limited life. They develop stress overtime and eventually crack. Most companies do not recommend them for street use. If you want significantly lighter with long life looks at the BST carbon. Thatís what Iím running. The difference in handling is huge.

Nastybutler Thanks guys. Figured it was a long shot. I have a rear Marchesini forged magnesium wheel, so I'm trying to find a front to match.

FWIW I weighed it against the stock rear wheel, rotor and sprocket (the new one having a wave rotor and Renthal sprocket) and it was around 3 1/2 lbs lighter IIRC.

MacBandit Also you have to worry about rotor offset. Wheels are model specific you can’t just buy one and regardless of axle sizes.

Another thing to consider is wheel weights. When I was shopping for wheels I found that the stock wheels are very light even the first generation. Especially the front wheel. You have to get a forged Marchesini before they are lighter than stock and then it’s only marginally lighter.

Shamrock Don't know about the Striple, but the 2013+ Daytona calls for a 20id x 42od x 12w Bearing, so I don't think it will fit. Bearing pocket should be 42mm.

Wheel fitment question

Anyone know if this wheel on eBay would fit my 2012 ST3?

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Marchesini-...8AAOSwIjJZQo0S

In case you can't pull up the link it is a 17" x 3.5" front Marchesini wheel which I know is the right size, but then it has:
47mm bearing pocket
25mm axel size

Not sure if that's the same as our bikes or not. Anyone know? And if that is the right bearing pocket and axel size, are there any other factors I need to ask about to confirm fitment?

Paging @MacBandit and @Orangeman
