After doing some research, I found a lot of information on installing CBR250R wheels, unfortunately CBR250R were not offered / available in the States. I found nothing on CBR600 f2 6 spokes wheels (3.5x17 front & 4.25x17 rear).. kinda sounded like a challenge to me! :idea: : anyway, I still have things to do, but at this point, here, my 2000 Suzuki DR650 supermoto with modified 1993 Honda CBR600 F2 wheels

• Front Brake Disc Rotor For HONDA NT 650 HAWK GT 318mm OD $47.88

Front rotor is a Honda Hawk NT650 have 320mm (318mm in fact) that will bolt straight onto a cbr600 F2 wheel as they have the same 144mm I/D, 6mm bolt hole, 166mm bolt diameter, 6-bolt rotor pattern.

Rear wheel - I used a Cush-hub from a Honda VF500 because it’s much thinner than the F2. I still needed to remove 4.3 MM from the the mounting face for the sprocket. Also, removed 9 mm from rotor side and counter bored for rotor bolts,

I made (5) custom spacer. (3) front (2) rear. Don’t forget the one between the cush hub and wheel bearing.

There is always a sacrifice! I had to remove material from the outer bearing flange (F&R) where the dust seal goes… so, basically, no dust seals. (may or may not be an issue).

someone ask me, "Was it worth it", well, that's an option but my reply - I really enjoyed this project but to be honest, probably NOT.. I have a total is $425.00 USD (not including tires) in my parts list... fortunately a zero cost for machining because I have a machinist background plus access to equipment. - yes, my labor/time is FREE :) so, my advise - contact Procycle and order a set of bolt-on SM wheels.,,

Whether is was "worth it" or not... it still looks pretty cool. And you have a unique machine few others have. :2_thumbsup:

:howdy: Nice. . . Yeah, like they say.

Love it when creative people make their own things happen. Machining skills alone won't make that happen because I've worked with many an excellent machinist that couldn't design squat. A mechanically savvy creative guy with machining skills. . .damn, if I had a daughter I'd want her to marry you and you buy a home nearby. :s_laughat

How far you going with this project? Fenders? Type of power?
I'm guilty of marching to my own music and being forced to sit in the corner for for years.

how far will I go.. not sure yet, but as you can see, I do like projects.

I do have a brand new Mikuni TM40 on my work bench for a winter install but for now, I've done the basic re-jetting, air box mods, two brothers and stiffer fork springs.

I'll keep you posted :lurk:
