Some reports of the earlier version self destructing.
Hopefully they remedied that

are they bad , yes

Will they make you a better corner carve, yes

$3000 in trackdays > $3000 wheels

Will make you a much better rider

now if you had bought an S duc or " factory" aprilia, you'd already have light weight wheels

bling factor is very high!

The single sided swing arm wheel pattern for BST is ugly as sin...

See how much your factory wheels are worth, you could sell them and offset the costs of the lightweight wheels...

Don't forget about floating rotors, ceramic bearings, lightweight sprocket, chain, and titanium rotor bolts...go big or go home

I have them on my turbo GSXR1000. Ceramic bearings, special sprocket, carrier, and rotors. It all costs money.

I have had no issues, and they seem to hold up well.

I like them!

Had mine for almost a year. No issues. Just keep them waxed. There's a guy on the R1 forum who's had his since '06 or something and he says they still look new. It does take a special sprocket pattern though.


And the handling is night and day. Probably the best mod you can make to a bike if you can swing the price.

Almost daily when possible. Bike sits outside at work all day as well. I've put about 6k miles on them so far. Granted, 6k miles is nothing compared to the real die hards but I ride whenever possible.
