Lightweight wheels make a difference. Both handling, acceleration, and braking. Just all over an easier ride. If I had the extra coin, I'd do it!
Thanks mate, yes, I am aware of the advantages, I run BST on my F4 but just wondering if anyone had specific exprerince on the F3, likely I will get some OZ anyway.

Anyone had any positive experience of changing the wheels on the F3? I have never weighed the OEM ones but I was led to believe they are not the lightest so was looking at a set of OZ to see if it makes a difference. Honestly I dont feel any issue with turn in or anything so its not like I am trying to address an issue but just wondering if anyone has made the switch and can clearly feel and before and after.

Gotta fill in the track downtime with something!
Yeah, very curious what the options are out there besides $$ carbon fibre. Any ideas?

Well the obvious are Marchesini or OZ....both look good and should be decent weight saving. Actually the BST's on my F4 have been sold and I am replacing with Marchesini M10 (should arrive tomorrow).

After over 2 years of waiting the borders between Singapore and Malaysia are opening up and the first track day at Sepang Is forthcoming! time to start getting the track F3 ready and first to do was to replace the ageing tank grips. Went with stompgrips however had to cut them so they fit with the tank extension. Not the neatest but for my track bike I am less critical.

Fluids change and we should be good to go.....hopefully.

So its been a long time coming but eventually found one which is track ready and with a list of parts which means I need to do very little.
The workshop is just sorting a new throttle assembly so she should be with me in a couple of weeks time, pictures soon but here is the list of parts and one picture from my test ride at Sepang last week.

She joins my F4RR and Dragster.....(although the wife does not know, and why should she?)

First track day in over 2.5 years is In a few weeks time so this F3 has not moved for a long time. Needed to replace the steering damper I stole to put on the F3RC. Went with Bitubo this time (previous was ohlins), it only works on track bikes as installs in the space where the ignition normally sits.
build quality seems nice, lets see how it performs.

Cheers mate. My F3 800RC will goto the dyno soon after I fit the high level SC, should be delivered next week. Hoping to get a reasonable increase on the 675.
Just for your info, I’ve geared my F3 800 either the standard gearing of a 675, I.E.. 16/43, down from 17/41. It bolts out of the corners, and consequently I had to stiffen up my steering damper considerably.
BTW I’d love to have the suspension mods you’ve got on your 675. Enjoy mate.

You mean your acceleration on corner exit is way better with this 16/43 gearing?

Agreed mate, I also went one down on the front sprocket on my 800RC, so much quicker off the line and as you say out of corners (think I mentioned on my other thread). One of the cheapest and best mods to do assuming you dont mind losing some top end.

Yes I agree about the cheapest mod. I believe the losing top end speed when you gear it for acceleration is a bit of a myth. For example, my previous track bike, a 2006 GSXR750 K6, was geared -1/+2, and was still 500 rpm short of redline
On the 900m main straight at Phillip Island.
Thats the general rule of thumb I use to get a good gearing set up. Obviously a track with a longer straight would probably need a slightly different sprocket combination, maybe-1/+1.
