Hello!
For my first post on the forum is like to ask for help from
the more knowledgable members on here.

I have a 2002 centennial edition 955i and im in the middle
of customising it to bring it up to date. I have a few items already fitted (gsxr1000 k4 front end, the main mod) but the wheels really require a refresh. Will a rear wheel from a 1050 sprint or speed triple
fit the swingarm? and what other years 955i (and all 955i engine models) will fit without modification? does a 1050 swingarm fir a 955i?

Also if anyone has an decent links to aftermarket part manufacturers that specialise in triumphs (other then jack lilley) id appreciate it.

Many thanks.

Matthew

Welcome Matthew

I have GSXR front end (06) on mine also.

Yes the late model wheel is straight fit on the rear.
Also you can fit the front wheel too if you revert back to the original 25mm axle off the Suzuki.
To deal with the speed sender, check out this thread.

The late swing-arm will fit - not sure if there are subtle differences. You'd be more cost effective just getting the original powder coated.

The front is still daytona 955 mate so would i have to make any mods to fit the matching 1050 front?
Im surprised more people havnt made the mod if its that easy.

yes and some new axle spacers.

How did you center the rotors in the calipers with the stock wheel on your set-up?
(GSXR forks have the rotor centers at 132mm - S3 wheel is 129mm)
I have 1.5mm spacers on my wheel between the hub & the rotor on each side so calipers are perfectly centered over the rotors.
I guess you could probably get by without them and the caliper pistons would offset by that much?

The real work was carried out by a friend who ive lost contact with. Is there any draw backs to not matching the front and rear wheels?
could i get away with say a 955i dymag front with a 1050 rear wheel?

Personally I think mismatched wheels just look like something thrown together from whatever parts they can find.
But it's what you think that matters on how it will look.

Front wheel needs to be off an 02-06 Daytona or 02-04 S3 assuming you still have 20mm axle. 97-01 S3/Daytona or 05+ S3 use 25mm axle, which again, will work if you revert to the OEM suzuki axle.


Are you in the UK?
Is this formerly Terry Paterson's bike by chance?
Just thinking about your configuration it matches up ..........

Im thinking 06 st1050 rear with daytona 955i front but both powdercoated in matching silver. If it doesnt look right i'll start sourcing the additional parts. Thanks for all your help mate.
i'll no doubt need more help soon!
