Brembo Superlights on F3/B3?

Hello,
I'm about to throw down some money on a B3 and want to put Brembo Superlights on it.

Will Superlights fit the F3? I assume they will also fit the B3 if they fit the F3, am I correct?

Thank you.

I would say it is most likely possible. I assume that the F3 / B3 have the same 25 mm (or so) front axles as the 2010+ F4 / B4. In this case You would need the Marzochi / Brembo pre 2010 axle / spacers to fit the Superlights into the F3. The Brembo / Marchesini "Superlights" have the larger bearing diameter. Everything else is dimensional the same.

Just remember the Brembo rear rim is 6 inch wide where the F3 and B3 have a 5.5 inch wide rim.

Are those spacers heavy? That defeats the purpose of putting light rims on.

They all use some sort of bearing or axle spacer, should not make any difference.

Could be a wheel clearance problem at the swing-arm, hard to say since I don't have one, I just thought I'd mention it in case you did not know.

I'd wait until Aftermarket wheel makers do a proper 5.5" rim width. The F3/B3 don't need a 6" rim.

I do not think the brembo superlight are much lighter as the design of F3/B3 is almost the same!

If they are the same design as used on the 2012 F4 RR models then they are heavier than the original Brembo Superlights..

The wheels on the new range of MV models are not made by Brembo/Marchesini and are manufactured outside of Europe..
