Extra rear wheel?

I've been thinking about getting a spare set of rims for the F4i, but dam, even on Ebay these sets are $300-400.

I'd like to have at least a spare rear so I can make easy changes and not miss track time fumbling around wondering if I did everything right.

So, my ? is, do I really need a spare front as well? I go through rears faster than the front.

$300 for a COMPLETE set of rims isn't bad. I bought 7 wheels off of eBay this past season and I don't believe I ever spent more than $150 for a wheel (including rotor(s) sprocket and/or cush drive). Some even came with tires.

1 set of rims for the "A" tires
1 set of rims for "B" (practice) tires
1 set of rims for rain tires.

I bought an extra set of wheels for the SV and paid 400 bucks for the set with the rotors, cush drive and new bearings.

I thought that was a good deal.

I'd keep a complete set. Once I started riding faster, I began to wear my fronts almost as fast as my rear. It became a matter of heat cycles as much as ure tire wear.

The last tiem I boguht a set, it was around $400 I believe. Ask Doc.... he always gets the best deals on parts from some dude he knows up in Maine or something.

I agree.

John,

I just picked up an extra set w/rotors for $300.
Should make tire issues minimal next year!

I shopped forever, and paid nearly $300 for spare f3 rims. btw they are worth it when you're getting tires every few weekends...

You can't go wrong... I bought 2 spare sets for the gix. Paid 400 and 450 with rotors.

Shipping is the bitch though....


See you at Beaver!!!!!!

I just got a rear wheel assy, with drive sprocket, rotor and a good tire for $161.00 shipped to my door for my GSXR. I'll worry about the front when I get fast enough.
