Default 98-02 GSXF front wheel code

Hi. I'm looking to fit a post 98 front wheel my 96 600.
Our local dismantlers are requesting the 3 letter wheel code to identify the rim.

Would any one with a 600 or 750 within the years of 98-02 with a 3.5in front wheel, be kind enough to post the wheel code?

Is there a specific reason you want a post rim? If it is to fit the 120/70x17 tire of the post model it will mount to the pre rim you have.

I am planning fitting a 4.5" post rear wheel in the short term and are working on widening abother swingarm to take a 5.5" rear.
I would like the front rim to match ie have the straight spokes and if I'm changing I may as well.go for the wider rim.

Got a post 750 wheel in the shed (no I need it) closest to a 3 digit code on the wheel says "AJY"
and it's a MT 3.50 17 and has the speedo drive

Got a 5.5 in there to (no) which has a different code "BOA", so I n\guess that could be the codes your after Note this ones a 6 stud hub and harder to find sprockets for (well it is if you want to go 525 and standard gearing on a 750 closest final drive sprocket is a 46T but you'd probably want to go 15 - 42 with that motor)

If ya having trouble look up goodparts Rangiora, Simon might be able to help you I think he's got a post 750 wrecking
https://nzbikeparts.com/

I get a lot of stuff off him give him an email

Watch out post spokes are thicker and the calipers will hit.
Damn wish I read Kreys post about that before I found out the difficult way
The way Krey suggested was to space out the forks with a 1mm washer just to spread the forks a bit.

Awsome thanks for that! thats the code i was after AJY. yes you are correct from the research i have done this rim will fit straight with the 1mm spacers.


I have tried simon he has nothing available at the moment, hes been very helpful though.


I have stuck to the 15/45 gearing and it seem to be about right. i am going to try going up to a 47 tooth to lift the rpm at 100kmph a little.


Cheers for the reply great help!!
