doug, i went out and read my zx12r rims, they say 17x 6.00, actual width was 6.125, cant say inside with tire mounted, so, lets try another direction, is there a kawasaki rim thats wider? zx14 appears to be 6inches as zx10. i have a 200/50/17 my wish was to flatten contact patch by moving beads apart, my original question that was lost in the discussion was the important part, how wide is the hub on other wheels, will they fit my control arm? anyone that can help id appreciate hearing from you, thanks

I think the zx10 04/05 has a 20mm axle so your zx12 swingarm won't hold it having a 25mm axle.
good point yorkie! i can always rely on you for good info!, but just to be devils advocate, there is more than one way to skin a cat! meaning, can the outside diameter of the bearings allow me to use different bearings> they are cheap, ill see if i can find out! thanks again!

Zx12 rear wheel bearings
6205 bearing - 25x52x15

Zx10 rear wheel bearings
6204 bearing - 20x47x14

“conversion bearing” = 6005 Bearing - 25x47x12 <- Start there.

Later, Doug

good job! i already looked up the stock bearings, osr zx10r conversion kit, has the bearings in it, sorry if i wasnt clear, shaving 4 pound is the same as i rwhp, also lighter wheels give more usefull torque, depending on brake rotor and sprocket use 3-5 pound weight savings! the kit is a little spendy, but another thing i found is the zx10 wheels use 4 isolators on drive hub and zx12 uses 5, so again, if i had money, just buy kit! ha ha, us poor guys trying to go cheap! thanks much for info! greatly appreciated, i also own a 2001 zrx as well, good to know axle info for thst one too hakuna matata

I own both…kinda…it’s a ‘83 Zx750A with a ‘84 a Zx750E engine swap. I’ve done all the work minus machining down the Triumph rear axle to fit the Ducati wheel.



I have a 9x20 lathe and a 6x26 vertical mill. I am willing to help if you need it.
