Rear wheel halp

Ok I need a rear wheel for my bike and I think I have been asking for the wrong thing I had a wheel for it and it wasn't the right one do I actually need to be asking for a 750 wheel not a 600 wheel? I have a 98 gsxr 600 but the wheel on my bike is a six slpine hub not a five??

This is what I have, what do I need to be asking for and does anyone have one??????

the 600 uses a 5 1/2 inch rim with a 180 section tyre ( WV to WY models)
the 750 uses a 6 inch rim with a 190 tyre (WT to WX models)
At first glance they look the same. Look for the "5.5" and "6" cast into one of the rim spokes.
The 750 wheel will fit right in there but if you run a 190 tyre I think it snags the chainguard from memory.
Good luck

I am pretty sure I have a 190 tire but not 100% will check when I get home.

So the six spline cush was on 600's and 750's?? just the width difference?
do you know what years used six spline?

It has 5.50 cast into it.

Was the 5 spline wheel I was sold before for the wrong year or do I have the wrong year wheel on my bike?

Cliffs: 98 GSXR 600 has six spline wheel is this correct?

The 600 and 750 should share the same wheel, and both should be a 5.5" wide wheel.

As far as the cush drive, I don't know if they're 5 or 6 slot, but they are supposed to be the same from 600 to 750. You probably got the wrong year wheel if the cush drive is different.

Having pics of both wheels would help (the one you busted and the new one).

I think I was sold the wrong wheel, that's the answer I got over on gixxer.com

You are mistaken Tom, read my earlier post,
the 600 is a 5.1/2 inch wheel
the 750 is a 6 inch wheel
We are talking about the circa 98 GSXR 600/750 SRAD models here I believe.

90 5.0 The cush drives are interchangeable so if yours doesn't fit then you have been sent the wrong wheel. I would hazzard a guess that what you've been sent is a pre 96 GSXR wheel.

Hmmm, news to me, but it's been a long time, I can concede that I may be wrong on that, but usually 'Zook keeps the 600/750 pretty universal.

Anyway, I agree that you were send the wrong wheel 5.0.

Just a thought but is there a parts catalog that would give you the correct part number?

If so, isn't the number cast into the wheel?

I don't know how successful i would be calling salvage yards and asking for parts by casting number. If I have to buy a new wheel I could go that route but usually correct year info and physical description has gotten me the best results when asking about used parts over the phone. The part numbers are on the spoke you can see them in the pic i guess i could have tried to cross referance them somewhere.

Your right that won't help over the phone but you'll know what youre looking at when you see the right one.
I hope that didn't sound sarcastic, just tryin to help... I'll shut up now.
