Time and time again it has been proven that the BST carbon wheels are STRONGER than most other wheels, be them steel, aluminum or magnesium! I can understand how/why people have reservations about a wheel made of carbon fiber, but if these wheels have no problem handling a turbo charged 300+ hp Busa launching on a 8" slick rear tire, i doubt you can find a girl big enough that these wheels would flinch at. Hell, id venture to say your going to break the rear subframe before a BST. That being said, GET THEM!!! I have them on my 999s and love every second of it, potholes in the street and all.
2005 999s (BST's, carbon tank, Braketech rotors, titanium here and there)
1998 916 (carbon everything but the seat and tank, Arrow cans)
1995 900ss trackbike project (Full D&D spaghetti system, 39mm FCR's, mono seat)
