A few months ago I ordered the wheel conversion kit from Daugherty Motorsports for the VF.
Yesterday, I picked up my newly powder coated CBR600 F2 wheels.
I am now quite excited.
I’ve ordered new wheel bearings, dust seals and a set of 120/70/17 front and 160/60/17 rear Pirelli Diablo Stradas.
The Stradas are tyre I know well and trust, so I thought would be a good base line to judge the modification.
My bike already has Wilbers-reworked forks and a Wilbers 641 shock, so it is pretty good in that department.
It also has a Blackbird front brake master cylidner and braided hoses all round, so this last mod should make it about as good as it can be without going the full graft-on either end.
Now all I need is some time to actually fit the damn things
Wish me luck.
