Hi, can anybody help me out with the measurements for a ZX14/ZZR1400 front wheel hub please, I've seen two old posts on the internet one saying it's too wide to fit a ZX12R and another saying you just need to use the 14 hub spacers. I know the 14 wheels are heavier than my 12 wheels but I love the look of them I know one person simply swapped a complete front end from a 14 onto a 12 but then had to fit a steering damper due to head shake so I don't really want to go to those lengths. If somebody has the time to take some measurements, exact distance between inside disc faces, overall width of hub and width of the wheel spacers I would really appreciate it, thank you.

I would if my front end weren't in pieces and boxed for shipping.

Thanks for that, I was hoping that somebody on here may have been able to help me and measure the distance from either the outside edges or inside face of the discs just so I know the spacing on them to see if I can adapt the 14 wheel to fit my 12.
If I knew how far apart the discs sit I can compare that with measurement of mine.

There should be a few who could easily measure and answer, but evidently everyone's head is out-of-town or up their ass this week. I will message a buddy.

A friend in Calgary tells me he measures about 5 9/16" out-to-out on his 14's rotors. That's very close to 140mm. Hope that helps.

Thanks for that, sadly I need to be at 138 mm inside to inside measurement, so with new discs mins just over 150 outside to out side.:oops:

Thanks for the offer but with you being in the USA and me in the UK I think postage/duty would be prohibitive. :eek:

Great job! What ZX-14 parts did you use other than the wheels?
