You need the hub / sprocket holder, that usually comes with the rear wheel. just make sure you get that too. sprockets etc stay the same as long as the hub / sprocket holder is for your bike.

yes you do, the bolt patter of the stock wheels is 6 the marchesinis are 5 so you do need a sprocket and see if you can find it in steal 530 pitch, if not you are going to have to do a 520 chain convertion.

call corey motomummy
or shane at mccoys

and find out if you they carry a 530 sprocket for marchesiny wheels.
and also you dont use nothing from your stock bike, the marchesinis come with everything.

check out the pics and you will see the difference in the sprocket.
and once again marchesini brings their own sprocket carrier, the only thing you use from the oem parts are the axle.

stock rotors and then a rear marchesini sprocket and you're good to go. you can use other rotors, but stock works as well. just need that marchesini sprocket. Nearly all sprocket manufacturers make a bolt pattern for a marchesini.
