996 front rim and rotors on a 1098 Show a forks installed on my 996 track bike

Has any one tried this? Got a set of 1098/1198 forks and put them on my 996 track bike. Machined a custom axle and spacer to fit my 996 oz rim with brake tech rotors (don't want to buy new ones). Used the men shims that came with their rim to increase the offset to 14mm instead on 10 from the 996 standard to match up to the 15mm offset needed. Figured I can leave out the rim spacers for the radial calipers to reduce the realm rotor size to 320mm of my current rotors. Couldn't find any posts about this, so has any one tried it?

You can never have too many motorcycles, no matter what the wife says!!!!

Don't see why not... so long as it's sound from an engineering standpoint you can do anything...
I just made up a pair of Yamaha forks with a 748 front wheel and discs with custom caliper brackets and 800 Monster calipers to go in a CB750 frame with a DR650 motor.

Needs bigger disks. You’ll stop quicker.

Yes! I might have to go back to 18" wheels like on the SR so I can fit them in

Does those extra brake caliper brackets not introduce additional flex?

No, no different to the stock cast in brackets on a 748/916

I have 1198S Ohlins forks in my 916, using a Marchesini wheel designed for 916/996 with the 6-bolt discs .

Needed a 30mm spacer to fill the void by the (no longer used) speedo drive and I have 15mm offset, 320mm brake discs which I prefer to using 5mm spacers but it fits and works fine with no other mods.

Using Øhlins forks from a 1198 and radial calipers with 320mm standard snowflake discs and 5mm spacer on each side. Using Dymag carbon rim with 6-bolt for brake discs. Also using speedo-drive

Have made a couple of adapters so I can use the orignal front axle from the 996. Think I used a wheel nut from the 1198.

Everything is possible
