Carlos Checa Replica Forged Aluminum Wheels

OZ Racing Piega Carlos Checa Replica Forged Aluminum Wheels.
I see these fit on the 1199 in the photo but they are only showing online that they fit only the 1198/1098.

Are the any issues with fitting these wheels to a Pani?

No fitment issues but yes you need the spacers since the wheels aren't meant for the Pani. I've had them on the bike for couple weeks now with about 200 miles or so. Even changed up the color n powdercoated them blue

About 6 pounds lighter than base wheels and you can notice the difference for sure. Accelerates quicker and turns in a lil quicker so u can kinda afford to turn in a lil bit later than normal. I got it for looks but the added performance benefit is just a bonus.

I think they're slightly heavier than S wheels. Not 100% sure though.

Think Pani S Marchesini wheels are hard to beat. I think OZ makes a full mag wheel that is a few pounds lighter but costs significant $$$ and thee are the carbon options which are a few ounces lighter than the mags but also $$$. (and one design is flat out fugly in my opinion)

I am not sure anything but -33+% on weight whould make me think of replacing my Pani S wheels, but as usual just my $.02.
Thanks from AntiHero

I just received my Carlos Checa OZ wheels today. First thing I did was weigh the wheels - together they are 2 full pounds heavier than the stock S model wheels off my Tricolore, 16.5 pounds versus 14.5 pounds. This is NOT including the front wheel adapters (2) and stainless steel screws (10) that mount the adapters to the wheel, which adds at least another half pound (although at the center of the wheel). Of far more concern though, was when I went to install the adapters. The first side went on perfectly with a touch of blue loctite, and 30Nm of torque applied to the ss mounting screws - unfortunately, the other side had one of the threaded holes defective (my guess is the machinist failed to fully thread the hole). The result was an instantly galled and broken ss mounting screw. Once it was clear there was a problem, I immediately tried to back it out (even using the back-and-forth "cha-cha" method), but it jammed solid in the hole, and the ss screw sheared off quite easily using an 8-inch Snap-On ratchet and very little torque. Word of caution here: if you feel ANY resistance to the mounting screw going in with no more than finger pressure, immediately and very carefully back it out before you shear it off - it may require chasing/rethreading the hole. Motowheels tells me they had never heard of this happening before - it figures I would be the lucky one who got the wheel Guido hurried through in his attempt to get the wheel done quickly. In their defense though, they sent me a free replacement screw the very next day. Not so good is the $50 it is costing me to have the broken screw extricated from the hole. First impression and quality-wise (I have not put a dial indicator on them as of yet) is that they are absolutely beautiful. I look forward to seeing them on the bike.
Thanks from farmind
