RS wheels on non-RS Z?
on: February 20, 2021, 11:23:05 PM
I apologize in advance if this has been answered. I tried to Google as well as search the forum. I didn't see anything specifically related to this.

Aesthetics aside, is there any reason 2018 Z900RS rims would not fit perfectly on to a 2021 Z900?

See if you can go on a PARTS fiche and look at part numbers and spacers, axle diameters and such. I would think you could.
Does the RS have the same swingarm and rear brake setup?

I just looked at the Kawi parts fiche, and it appears the rear end on both uses all the exact same part numbers, so I see no reason it wouldn't work to swap the '18 RS rear onto the non-RS '21

I would be surprised if the front swapped without specking out new bearings and seals

Had a shop help me to swap them on. No issues!

Thank you for this! This helped me to move forward. Had a shop help me. No issues!

I'm not going to lie and say I know. I had a shop help me out. They didn't have any issues, but I didn't think to ask if this was needed to be done. I'm guessing no because they didn't bill me for it.
