still no word

nor will there be - on my stolen sc. farkin bs. cops still not come by. insurance still investigating.

Ive moved on tho.

another 2008 found. new parts ordered. some fresh wheels found.

The rear is going to be a 6inch forged. and so, I went through this issue on the last build - having to lathe down many millimeters off of fast franks spacers... test, lathe, test, repeat... we managed after 2 hours.... perfect fit. very time consuming tho.

can someone inform me as to best method to fit a 6 inch rear on the SC. Im using the 999 caliper mount, and the 999 rotor. (yes, i can order 175 spacers from fast frank and lathe them down again)...

or??

also - the 180/5.5 on the 6inch rear. thats what I had setup. I never got to ride it as the bike was lifted the day after the build. can anyone comment on that? should i go 190/ 6?

thanks guys.

rebuilding...bike, life....

Mistakenly purchased 305mm Brembo rotors from a HYM like a moron. 320 MTS rotors just arrived. Fingers crossed for this weekend. Cant wait to ride this bike. So. Close. To. Canyon. Shred.

And she's done. The lighter wheels are definitely transformative with how the bike changes direction and feels over bumps and uneven pavement. I'm most impressed most with the brakes though. Huge improvement in stopping power and modulation even with the stock master.

It's an expensive project but worth it in the end.

Okay guys,

I have a set of 999R forged Marchesinis for my 1000S and a rear caliper bracket from a 999. I know this has been beaten into the ground over the past 10 years, but I want to get it right and I have confused the hell out of myself looking at all the threads.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I need:

1. Rear Wheel Spacers (I think have the schematics to machine my own but I only have three plans and I thought there are four spacers) DROPBOX LINK

2. 999 Rear Caliper

3. 65mm Front Axial Calipers (goldline/silverline Brembo)

4. 320mm 10mm Offset Front Rotors (are the MTS1200 and 848 the same just with different carriers?)

5. 999 Sprocket Carrier

6. Front and Rear Sprocket Kit w/chain (what ratio do I use for stock gearing?)

7. Healtech V4 Speedohealer

8. 999 Front and Rear Brake Lines (only if the stock ones have too harsh of a bend)

Also, how well do the stock master cylinders handle the 4p/4p brake setup?

My suspension setup is stock ohlins front and rear and Corse Dynamics captive rear wheel spacers/axle blocks.

Am I leaving anything out?

1. Rear Wheel Spacers (I think have the schematics to machine my own but I only have three plans and I thought there are four spacers) DROPBOX LINK
---There are 4 spacers(I've done this twice already on my bikes). one goes into the wheel from the left(NOT into the cush drive), one goes into the left of cush drive, one goes into the right side of wheel, one goes into the caliper bracket. So, you need 4. **Now, Ive run 6in forged both times, and Ive had to cut down Fast Franks spacers to accomodate(not sure where the schematics are from). That said, another item to mind is the individual spacing between the cush drive and eventually the rotor. I havent done a side-by-side, but its possible the forged marchesinis are a bit different than your standard 999 rim.

2. 999 Rear Caliper
yes

3. 65mm Front Axial Calipers (goldline/silverline Brembo)
yes

4. 320mm 10mm Offset Front Rotors (are the MTS1200 and 848 the same just with different carriers?) the mts1200, HP-T rotors - superb, but long wait! don't know about the 848.

5. 999 Sprocket Carrier - this should be included already and matched to the forged marchesinis.

6. Front and Rear Sprocket Kit w/chain (what ratio do I use for stock gearing?)
stock gearing on the sc1000 was 15/39 (absolute garbage). You'd take the opportunity to go 14/41, or 14/42 (i run 14/43 for the get-up-go factor). further, you could go with 520 chain and lighten her up. 14/41 - 520 would be great.

7. Healtech V4 Speedohealer
yes

8. 999 Front and Rear Brake Lines (only if the stock ones have too harsh of a bend)
for the rear, depending on the rear caliper you get, you may not absolutely need some extra length, but the fittings may not align with the inlets on the mc vs the caliper. it has been done with stock with some pulling, etc - but a fresh line with matched fittings is appropriate.
the front can be done with stock and you get a not-so-vicious outward bend on lines, like small elephant ears. It wont interfere at all. but, you can take the opportunity here to get a 999 setup, with the over-the-fender second line (one down from mc, one line over fender)

Also, how well do the stock master cylinders handle the 4p/4p brake setup?
4p/4p are fine with the original pumps. Ive read recently someone found them a touch lacking... I found the oem pumps and 4p/4p tight and responsive. HOWEVER, the oem pumps with 4p - on paper - is probably pointing through the acceptable limit in terms of fluid movement and attenuation...

enjoy the mod!

Hi everyone,

I'm also in the process to make the 999 wheels conversion on my Sport 1000 s, but I can't get my head around which front brake discs/rotors I have to install.

So I've got the 999 wheels + the 999 axial callipers (4P/4P) already.
After reading a lot and doing research, from what I can understand is that I need front discs/rotors with following dimensions:

320mm diameter
10mm offset
5mm thickness.

The discs from the Monster 1200 should be a perfect fit, correct?

So after searching for the correct reference I came up with following compatible discs (if anyone can confirm me I'm on the correct way please?)

Brembo: 208.A985.36
Brembo: 208.B470.36
Brembo: 208.9737.36

Galfer: DF807CRWD
Galfer: DF807CRWI

Can anyone confirm those references are correct to have the discs/rotors installed as plug&play as I don't want to grind off anything from the front brake callipers and won't like to buy incorrect discs/rotors due to their $$$

Many thanks in advance.

You're absolutely correct. (I've done this twice)

320 diameter, 10mm offset, 5 bolt, with 999 4p/4p axial calipers -- will require no extra work. plug and play with OEM forks - using the OEM spacers and axle. for conversational reference - I would say the MTS1200 rotors are what we use. (yes, some/most of the monster rotors are the same, but when sourcing, I use the specs above, and MTS1200 as the bike reference. so many iterations of the monster can lead to confusion at times)

Brembo: 208.9737.36 is correct
brembo also makes the T-drive(208.A985.36) and Groove rotors(208.B470.36), 320:10 offset:5bolt. I run the latter, no problems! Tdrives are the nuts - very lovely.

Ive not used the galfer.

I had custom lines made - in the 999 style, with the over-fender caliper to caliper line.

you -CAN- get away with the original front lines - however, because the banjo fittings aren't aligned correctly at the caliper, you get some outward bowing out of the lines. This does not affect the bike tho...but isn't quite the nicest looking.

the rear 999 caliper, and bracket requires a new line to link up correctly and for length. I went with the underside mount while I was at it...

Just purchased a 2006 Sport 1000 with mostly stock parts. First thing wanna do is get some wheels & tires. Excuse my ignorance but will these Marchesini's work (along with the other parts mentioned in 1st post of this thread)? Mucho appreciated.

You'll need a slew of other parts but those wheels are the correct ones. I was looking for some forged wheels this past summer and there was a guy in Europe with a nice set of forged black 999R wheels he was selling as a set for 1300 plus shipping if you're interested.

16.5?

Are you wanting to go to 16.5 wheels vs the usual 17? The ebay links are for 16.5 wheels, aren't 16.5 typically track-oriented wheels with relatively limited street tire options?

I passed on those wheels in the links, to much trouble. Ended up buy a nice pair of forged Marchesini aluminum’s 17X5.5 from a 999S off EBay for $750 USD.

That's a great deal if they're forged. Now you gotta get a 520 drivers to sync up the gears.
