Those are zzr sbk rims!!Did some machining and it fits perfect!!
Rim size 17x3.00(Front) and 17x4.00(Rear)!Wanted to fit bigger rims but my swing arm could only fit tyres size 140 and that the widest it could go!!
Just got my disk brake fitted yesterday!Am using a brembo 320mm disk for the front which was taken off a cagiva mito!!Will post pics soon for u guys to view........
All i can say is that braking is wonderfull now,all i need is one finger and the bike comes to a stop!!Only problems is my front fork as its too soft!!Need to stiffen it!!Ant tips aon how to do that!!

Nice machine, Zacko!

I'm doing a similar job on my XR600R.

Looks like the original swing arm(?) Are you sure 140 is the max width that'll fit? Some guys here in the UK say a 160 will just fit OK.

It'd be good to know your findings!

go for normal engine oil, and add on a little bit more than the spec recomend. that would do the trick for ya.

Yes its the original swing arm and am preety sure that a 160 tyre would not fit into it unless u dont mind it grinding aginst your chain!I too have heard some ppl using a 160 tyre but not sure how they do it!!Could be they change the swing arm????

Do u mean add engine oil with the fork oil???
Dont get what u mean!!!!!!!!:cheers:
