Marchesini front rim

1 USED alu marchesini 5Y front rim, for 02-03 R1.
no rotors, complete with spacers.
powdercoated white. 1 single chip, inside rim where tire bead sits.

asking $530 shipped.

Here's the deal, i bought it to try to retrofit it to my 06 R6V, but i failed to see that the older R1/6 used 6 bolt rotors, not 5 like the newer ones.
I have test fitted it to my R6V and it fits perfect, SO, if you have oversized pre 04 R1 rotors, that are 320mm you can run this on a new R6 with 5mm spacers at the calipers.
If you have 310mm pre 04 rotors youre golden.
If you have a 00-03 R6 or R1, these will bolt on fine and use stock rotors.

Im still attempting to get a Marchesini accessory kit so i can make it fit my R6V, but no luck so far, if i get one, it will no longer be for sale, but in the mean time. its up for grabs.

Re: Marchesini front rim

I'm sure they make a rotor that will work. They're sweet

Re: Marchesini front rim

The problem is relatively easy to fix if I can't source a carrier to fit.

Get oversized pre 03 R1 rotors, usually 320mm and machine these carriers down 2.5mm each side. Add caliper spacers, done.

The wheel actually fits my R6V. Problem is pre 03 rotors are like 298mm and 5mm wider L rotor to R rotor.
If someone has big pre 03 R1 rotors, some simple carrier machining, and spacers these would fit great.
I just can't afford a set of those rotors right now.
