999 Wheel Weights

I have not been able to find a reliable source for 999 wheel weights, so following are the actual wheel weights that I've measured. My measurements are in pounds and include bearings, spacers, cush drive, and valve stems (no rotors or sprocket).

OEM cast 19.0 - r 9.6 - f
OEM forged 17.6 - r 7.2 - f
OZ Piega 12.4 - f 7.2 - f

I was surprised that the OEM forged rear wheel is as heavy as it is. I expected it to be lighter. On the other hand, I was pleased to see that the forged front was as light as the OZ Piega. That said, I'd bet that the Piega is much lighter at the rim.

1998 SS FE #194
2005 749R #362
2006 999 S

Ha...

When I read the thread title, I was thinking you meant balancing weights. I was like..."they make weights just for the 999"?

Are those weights with bare wheels?
No rear sprocket or rotor?
no front rotors?

Rear will have more weight with cush drive and hardware , plus the extra 2" width
