Well, that wheel thing is pretty popularly bad ju ju with most here. Right up there with K&N filters. I'm guessing you might stay with original wheels.

But the Kat's intrigue is universal. I remember the first time I ever saw a later Kat, just like I remember the first time I ever saw a new '63 Sting Ray with the split back window. Yow!

Rear wheel can be made to fit with some minimal work. The front wheel would take some serious work... and machining... and ... yeah, I'm gonna go with skip that..

Get as set of post kat wheels 98-02, no mods to fit... and will give you the 3.5" front, 4.5" rear that you would get form the bandit.
