I noticed the photo doesn't depict the Yamaha rotor (hub) bolt pattern thou, are those for a different rotor setup?

Below is my 10 spoke which fit the OEM rotors (or aftermarket upgrade rotors), just curious if alternate rotors would be needed?

The pic i posted is just a pic off of marchensini,s website showing the wheel design.....The wheels are direct replacement for the r1 brakes and bike.....all that would be needed is a sprocket of your tooth count made for these wheels thats available from many of this sites sponsors..... :hellobye

Thats what I figured, I went thru the same issues trying to get pics of my exact wheels, prior to my purchase :yesnod

I have seen other members Marchisini's with smaller hubs (not Yamaha bolt pattern) (similier to above 5 spoke) but they are typically on Ohlins forks.

Can anyone explain that one?

Sorry, I didn't explain myself very clearly.

I meant I've seen R1's with Marchisinis and the smaller hub/bolt pattern, but mostly on R1's with Ohlins R & T forks on them.

It appears that there are different hub/bolt pattern configurations (small hub vs. OEM) compatable with different fork configurations (Ohlins vs. OEM), but both work on the R1.

Are you confused yet :lol

I got ya......They make small hub wheels for the r1 with ohlins forks but you have to run small hub brakes also.......saves a few ounces more weight.......I guess it just depends on the combo you want to run.......:thumbup
