I changed tires and sprocket/rotor...near 17 lbs lost:I guess that's the way to get them. I would love to have a set on my 14r just haven't talked myself into it yet. By the way do you know how much weight saving they are over the stock gen 2 rims?
I won't be running this slip-on for long...whatever muffler I run on the full pipe...will sound mean...promise. :thumbup:Looks good and that sound. I have'nt heard the full pipe on a h2 yet but if its better than yours I found my new ring tone. Redsled.
Thanks! The wheels should arrive tomorrow, and I will try to post some pics. I probably wont be able to install them for at least a couple of weeks. I also have to do some research and decide what tire combo I want to run.I was really surprised, the front being smaller in general and still able to save three pounds... How can the rear a bigger rim (more room to improve) be only a one lb improvement... Just doesn't make sense...
Again I am all for reducing moi unsprung and rotating mass etc etc etc...
The numbers just seemed off.
And warp you set an excellent example for all of us to dream of following... Thanks for the in depth threads And keep it up.
Congrats on the h2 and I can't wait to see what it will do.
Looks like front saves 3 pounds and rear only 1 pound per 650ib video...I wonder if your weights will confirm thatThanks! The wheels should arrive tomorrow, and I will try to post some pics.

As I posted above, Brock has already responded to that video:Looks like front saves 3 pounds and rear only 1 pound per 650ib video...I wonder if your weights will confirm that
I am expecting numbers closer to the above (3.9 lbs savings on the rear). You can't compare weights with different size tires with different wear levels, as I mentioned before. Typically, when Brock's posts weights, I have found them to be accurate. We will see....soon.Here are true wheel weights, using certified scales:
OEM H2 (2015) Front and Rear Wheel Weights
OEM Front (bare, w/ bearings):
10.00 lb. (add .10 for spacers)
BST Front (w spacers):
SIZE : 3.5" x 17"
WEIGHT : 7.00 lb. (3.17 kg)
Add .25 lb. (0.11 kg) with Worldwide Bearings ceramic bearings
Add .30 lb. (0.13 kg) with Worldwide Bearings steel bearings
OEM Rear Wheel (bare):
SIZE : 6" x 17"
WEIGHT : 7.05 lb. (3.19 kg)
Everyone should have 2 sets. I have a set for each of my bikes.I'll take 2 set for my 10Rs!....although the marchesini forged mags I have on one of them are just a few ounces heavier.
When was the last time you recall seeing any BST wheel that wasn't beautiful? The straight spoke design on the front wheel is a bit different.. That said they are getting a bit common now days. I'm thinking hard about painting the spokes on a set of mine just to be different from all the restGot my set today. Beautiful!
Very very nice, their beauties. How soon till their mounted? Figure out what rubber your wrapping around them?
Yea but when you are as fast in the corners as Shane you got to make sacrifices .... :rotflmao:Supercorsas are some of the lightest tires on the market. I don't know if I would put them on an H2 as I am sure it will roast the centers way too fast on the road!
I'm in no rush to mount them, with the 30 degree morning temps, and plenty of wear left on the stock setup. I will likely be going with Michelins, and not necessarily in the stock sizes.Very very nice, their beauties. How soon till their mounted? Figure out what rubber your wrapping around them?
