How much does each Magnesium 5 star wheel weigh
 
Does anyone know for sure?

I have weighed the regular 5 star, the Senna rim, and the 10 spoke Brembo.

-MV Agusta OEM ORO Magnesium rims combined: 7.1kg/ 15.7lbs
3.2 front and 3.9 rear

Thank you.

Lighter than either the Senna or the Regular 5 spoke. About the same as the 10 spoke as I recall.

CAG 12-02-2009 02:59 PM

I correct myself. The rear 10 spoke is 7.4 pounds, I didn't bother to weigh the front.

[CAG;I correct myself. The rear 10 spoke is 7.4 pounds, I didn't bother to weigh the front.]


Which would be quite a bit lighter than the mag rear, if my math is correct.

CAG 12-02-2009 04:12 PM

Your math is correct. I'm surprised the aluminum rims are lighter than the holy grail magnesium.

Djester 12-02-2009 09:14 PM

but the Star Mag. rims aren't forged...... the forged Mag. 10 spokes are very light. I've done a hand-in-hand comparison at the shop once.

On the Oro the rims are magnesium not aluminum. Also the SP01 kit came with the magnesium not aluminum rims.

I have a scale in the "shipping department" and had a set of 5 stars, a set of Senna rims and the Brembo 10 spokes there at the same time. So I weighed them all just to see, for sure, which was the lightest. The only MV Agusta rims I did not have on hand, and probably never will, were the 5 stars from the Oro.

The Brembo (marchesini) 10 spokes were the lightest and by a lot.

Will I ever regret I painted them silver, as gold does not fit in my colour scheme

CAG 12-03-2009 09:16 AM

You will not regret painting them silver.

What is the readout? 89 and 32?
