Track tested BST wheels on F3 800

I took my 14 F3 to the track, with BST wheels I just put on and.....

Iím actually thinking of relegating them to street duty and putting the stock ones back on. The bike is almost TOO quick steering. Even with the steering dampener slowing it down.

Ride height is stock. No mods to the geometry.

Just imagine if you switched out the rotors to light CMC rotors also. My bike feels like it will fall over. I love it.

PICS!!!!!

I was planning on doing some BST 7 spokes, but after getting some suspension work, i was like how much quicker would i want the steering to be?
Also continue to find the front end quite light when the gas is pinned open from 2nd gear on, maybe it will even out after 145mph/ LOL


But seriously pics? if you think you dropped 7-8lbs for wheel weight, that is alot

Hereís 2 pics. The one without the MV stickers is before I replaced the bodywork with CF pieces.

Also, the bike has Brembo T-Drive rotors on it, now.

Iíd say they dropped a good 4-5 on the front and around 7 on the rear. You definitely notice it.

I also put K-Tech DDS cartridges in the front and had to go lower than my normal spring rate because of the wheel.

Have the same wheels on my 1078. Have to disagree on the weight. I weighed both the standard rims and BST's and there is nothing of significance between them. BST's steer a bit quicker but that's more from the fact the majority of their mass is closer to the hub.

Thatís funny because I actually weighed the rear. It was 6.7lbs lighter.

The front I didnít weigh. Weighed the wheel on the same scales I used to use for our AMA 600 DSB racers. Although, in fairness, I also have a lighter rotor on it, but that wouldn account for that much of a difference. Not even close

I stand to be corrected but I remember being disappointed at the time with the lack of weight saving. I am due a new back tyre shortly and shall weigh them both then (still have std. wheels) both without breake rotors.

Could it be that the original 1078 rims are different than the standard F3 rims?
