Are the S wheels lighter than the OZ one? That wasn't my understanding.
Yea. I coulda swore I read that on here somewhere. Not a huge difference but still like a pound or maybe two less than the aluminum OZ's.

I bought a leftover base 2012 early last year. Before I even picked up the bike I sourced some S wheels and rode those for 2,000 miles before putting Bridgestone S20's on the base wheels for a mountain trip for better wet weather performance. The difference was immediately noticeable, although the steering characteristics of the Supercorsa vs. S20 tires also played into the perceived difference.

After putting 1,500 miles on the base wheels with Bridgestones I put the S Wheels with Supercorsas back on for another 1,500 miles. Then, last November I bought the RotoBox Carbon Fiber RBX2 wheels, which are 1.4 pounds lighter than a set of BST CF wheels, 4.25 pounds lighter than the S wheels, and a whopping 9.5 pounds lighter than the base wheels.

I had Supercorsa's mounted on the RBX2 wheels and the difference from the S wheels was ridiculous. When I say ridiculous, I mean I had to learn how to steer the bike again and change some damping because it was so different - steering was so much lighter and direction changes so much quicker it requires a re-calibration of steering inputs. It's not just the absolute weight difference, but also where the weight is less, which on a CF wheel is significantly less weight around the rim. This equates to lower moment-of-inertia, which in practical terms is the force you have to overcome when steering (changing direction of) the wheel. The difference in going from base to S wheels was not nearly as great as the difference in going from S wheels to Carbon Fiber. However, since S wheels are going for about $1,500, it is an awesome and worthwhile upgrade. IMHO, I would do that before adding an exhaust.

Hope that helps explain the practical benefits of lighter wheels. Here is my thread when I got the RotoBox wheels and tried to relay the experience:

Thanks. It's not quite what I am after though.
I am well aware of the benefit of lightweight wheels (in theory only), and am forever grateful for the lightweight wheels on my S (yes, I have an S).
But what I am after is an eyewitness version of back-to-back comparison between Base with Base wheels and Base with S wheels.
I really want to know how much handling is different between Base and S (without having to steal a Base), with an assumption of equally-sorted suspensions.

1299 front wheel

I have to ask: Why are you getting a front wheel that doesn't have any of the bearings/spacers with it?


Hi sorry to open up an old thread. Do you know if this also applies to a 1299. I have a base model and have just picked up some s wheels but the front doesn't fit. It slides side to side on axel when fitted.

You need to take the two outer spacers from the old wheels and transfer them to the new wheels.

I've put my base model spacers into the s wheel as I didn't get any spacers with the new wheels and there is about 8mm that the wheel slides side to side between the forks. It also looks like the disc may be spaced differently?

Post a few pictures and the part# on the wheel.
Something doesn't add up.
You should have no problems putting the"S" wheels on your bike.
The only other thing possible is that you have wheels off a different model.
Easy to check, on the Panigale, width of the hub from the back of the rotors is 120 mm on most others it is 105mm.
If you put the spacers on and you still have a gap, you definitely have the wrong wheel.
You may need to buy the spacer kit to mount 1098/1198 on a panigale.

I have just measured the wheels between where the discs would sit and this is 105mm.

Does this mean they are defiantly not panigale wheels?
