will older 916-998 front wheels fit a 999

I know the rotor bolt pattern is different, but what about the spacing. The reason I ask is I am getting an 848 and turning it into a racebike immediately so I will need to get some spare wheels. The rears I already have found out are the same as the old 916-998 except in 5.5" which makes it easy to get 6" wide wheels. The fronts are the same as the 999 series I believe with 320mm rotors. So If I could make the 916 fronts work then I can get a set made for that bike as long as use those rotors.

748-998 use a 10mm offset rotor, different axle spacing and different fork bottom offset than the 749-999 series. It is also set up for a speedo drive - so a spacer may be required.

The 848-1098 use basically the same wheel as the 999 (15mm rotor offset/5 bolt) but use a different axle. There are a lot of these around for cheap and would might be an easier swap.

Email Matt@motowheels.com or give him a call at 916.369.2509. He is more familiar with the little details and differences.

We get trade in on the base 1098 wheels for BST wheels from time to time. If you let Matt know he can contact you when any come up.

M, is there any interchangeability for rear wheels between the 748/916 and the 1098 or the 848?

I have been told that the rear 848 is the same as the Hyper,916-998,Late S4 and S2. But the 1098 is all by itself, it has a bigger axle.

For now, unless Ducati offers some good contingency in LW, I might have to pick up a Hyper and turn it into a lightweight weapon. . My 848 is getting stripped down this week.

Lets hope they don't ... 'cause if not, 08 is shaping up to be a promising year.

Can't wait to see the 848 in action. Save me second place in the SupTwins.

Anyone know if a 1098 hub assembly will fit into a 998 swingarm so that 1098 wheels can be used?
