Magnesium is defiantly the better wheel, but i very much doubt if you would ever notice the benefit on the road. I have Marchesini Magnesium Wheels on all my bikes & on the road it doesn't make me go any faster neither does it make any of my bikes get head shakes. If you can afford magnesium go for it or what about carbon fiber

First time I have heard that.

Placebo effect are my thoughts . Don't get me wrong I like lighter wheels but the base wheels are not exactly anchors either .
Coaching and track times will improve your times more so over buying lighter wheels if that's your goal but that is just sensible talk if you want light wheels buy the ones you like the look of .
Thats good advice. Buy what makes you happy.

re wheels: I heard someone say that lighter wheels stuff around with suspension settings. Maybe just a wives tale.

I'll go the shock route first. Always one for a properly setup machine for weight and skill.
There is not that much difference in the weight of S Wheels and the mag wheels. I agree with Wilks it will not make any diff to the suspension its too small a change. I think the out of balance bit will be true if the level of shock "quality" for want of a better term is not matched, due to damping and spring rates. Try going to Shock Treatment out at Walacia and see Terry he will set sag for you and is the best man for advice on Ohlins.

Thanks mate,

Ordered a TTX shock through Terry, just waiting for it to turn up. I'm keeping my eye out for some second hand forgies.

Magnesium all the way,the bike feels much more nimble & flickable. The difference is huge.

Nothing with wrong with the S wheels, and for the money best bang for the buck out there.. Personally if I am spending money BST or rotobox, will be the wheel of choice for performance, and they don't look to bad either.

I would have to say my favourite are the 6 spoke alloy from OZ Racing.
To me they just look like a real race wheel.
