Thank you very much.

You're looking at $650 for new rims and spokes. This would require you to use your current hubs.
$400 would be a great price for the wheels. If they fit, get them. If you don't know if they fit then you'll need a lot of measurements from them:
Axle dia - if this isn't the same as yours you might be able to make it work with different sized wheel bearings
Inner swingarm width, wheel offset from centerline - if these aren't the same as your bike you might be able to correct it with new wheel spacers.
Sprocket offset - it's easy to space the sprocket farther out, but requires machine work to set it farther in.
Rotor dia and offset spacing
There's lots to consider with this conversion. It's much easier if you can borrow the wheels to see if they will fit. I fitted a CBR600 rear wheel to my NX650, but most all the measuments between the bikes were identicle, so it wasn't too tough.

The GS500 rims were a good start for the DRZ. You need to change out the bearings, create your own spacers and then fab up mounts for the brake calipers.
If you know a guy in a machine shop, you can get out fairly cheaply... if you don't... then your better off going a different route.

I put cbr600f3 rims on my 06 wr450. You wont want to go with r6 rims because the rear is simply too wide and both have different axle sizes. The f3 rims have the same axle sizes and the front is pretty much a bolt on mod with different wheel spacers and front brake. The rear is (in my opinion) perfect at 5' wide, although you need to machine the hub area down over an inch. Not everyone has the skill or a lath big enough to spin a wheel that big. Good luck.
can you give me anymore specifics???is the front rotor good enough to run and what you did to make a caliper relocator....how much the back had to machined down for sure and what not....i appreciate the help:thumbsup:
