Anyone know if a 900rr rear wheel will fit on an F3? I am looking to change the rear wheel in order to accomodate a 180 tire. Thanks.

I know that a 180 will fit. I know a guy that put a Marchesini on the back of his 1996 F3 so he could run a 180. Basically I want to do it since Dunlop does not produce the D208GP in a 170 (I currently run the D207GP in a 170). And yes, I push that rear tire pretty good on the track.

This is incorrect.

Try Race Tire Services at www.dunlopracing.com

They say "racers only". But tell them you ride with NESBA or some other track day organization.

Gravity is a cruel mistress.

Thanks but DUNLOPRACING.COM doesn't list the D208GP in a 170...just the D207GP. Am I missing something...do I have to ask for it specifically?

I have just send to machinist the dimensions of a 900RR wheel to fit the 600f2 swingarm.
Basically there were some few/minor parts to be changed/fabricated.
Needed fabrication/machined:
Left and right wheel spacer
Inner spacer from the Sprocket carrier

Need to be machined down
sprocket carrier
Right side of the rear wheel (where the brake disc seats)

All the work is to be done in a way that I could revert the original f2 wheel.
No problem with chain clearance.

Sizes in mm will be available as work is returned from my machinist.

By the way, I already rode a f2 with tose changes, and could not believe the difference in grip on turns. Just felt an initial more effort to turn. But as you begin everything just felt more assuring albeit a worn rear shock. Also, due to the increase in ride height the pegs stayed longer away from tarmac.
