  • 98+ Rear wheel on 1990 Katana 600?

    I know this has been covered a lot, and from what i've read the answer is yes it will fit.

    I purchased a 98+ rear wheel of ebay, and from the looks of it if I threw on a tire it looks like it's going to be extremely close to the swing arms. Theres about an inch on each side without the tire.

    Are you guys positive that this will fit with the normal 150 tire on?

    100% positive with a 150. You could make a 160 work too, but would to tweek the brake arm for clearance. Neither will hit the swingarm if it's properly aligned and/or the swingarm is not out of alignment.

    Check out Fred's bike rebuild for example. It's a pre frame/swingarm with Post most everything else. lol.
