t595/955i to 1050 Front wheel swap

Paging DEcosse. LOL
I've been searching with different search terms for a few days to find the answer without having to post but... have failed to answer my questions

I'm planning to modernizing the cosmetics of my new to me 98 t595 starting with some 1050 wheels. Rear won't be a problem. Front, however...

The differences I think I'm facing.
1. Rotor size and pattern
Just use 1050 rotors and spacer the calipers? Is that doable? I think I also saw the need to space the rotor off the wheel in DEcosse's gsxr fork swap thread.

2. Axle size and spacing
Have a 5mm sleeve machined for the axle with custom spacers? Or did I just read that my bike has a 25mm axle as well?...

3. Speedo pickup
If I just sleeve the axle can I run the same speedo hardware?

Which year of 1050 wheel?

There will no drive plate fixing, nor room for the speedo sender - There is a pocket that is both deep and large diameter to accommodate the sender in the normal wheel for your bike; that is single biggest obstacle unless you go to an electronic speedo and ditch the mechanical one. There is absolutely no way to fit speedo sender to late model wheel of either of the 05+ or 08+ generations

Your bike does have 25mm axle however;

Rotors will definitely not fit and will have to be specific to 1050 wheel (of whichever generation wheel applies)

Rotor spacing will be different (and different again depending on which generation 1050 wheel) - with radial calipers they will not space axially and rotors must be spaced - however with conventional calipers you can move the calipers with spacers - however that only works for inboard, the 1050's rotors already set wider than yours.
For 05-07 wheel you can use Sprint rotors from same generation

Is it possible to change to new clocks (which I'd like to do anyway)? Repin my wiring to the new connector and use an electric pickup? Could I use the pickup that on my swingarm? Since I have one.

This sounds like a potential show stopper with my stock forks, can you elaborate on it? I actually like the beefy look of my stock forks and would rather not replace them

If you go Electronic speedo that makes it possible.

Here is 'how-to' on the 02+ instruments conversion - http://www.triumphrat.net/speed-trip...o-97-01-a.html

- or you can keep your current Tri-cluster & replace the mechanical speedo with one from Sprint ST 99-04

Either way you will need this mod to drive it.

Rotors from 1050 Sprint, no rotor or caliper spacers required.

Axles spacers:
Right side - 25.05 mm ID x 35mm OD x 28mm long
Left Side - 1mm longer than stock left side spacer
(you may be able to just go with stock left spacer - that side is not critical as wheel aligns off the right side fork - as long as axle is not already up against outside face of right fork and there is room for it to come 1mm further through without protruding)

VERY COOL!
Shopping list:
1050 Sprint Rotors
gsxr speed sensor
rare earth magnets
02+ gauges and the wiring (plug at a minimum. I think I can repin it with my wiring based on schematics provided... as long as i can find the pins...)
Spacers...

And then tires, headlight, mounting hardware for clocks, lighting...

And I still have to do a compression test, replace some rubber on the engine, resolve my "leaking" issues... It likes to leak a very tiny bit of coolant from one place and oil from another.

Thanks for all the help m8 I Really appreciate it.

1050 Sprints were 05+

Will any 05+ sprint discs work or only up to a specific year?

Just picked up a pair of 06 sprint discs for a very decent price off ebay that had plenty of life on them...

One more item to check off the list \o/

Thanks for the reminder I just sent the seller a message, hopefully he sees it before he sends off the discs.

Not really interested in dropping $150 on new...
