Includes front and rear wheels
About the wheel: CAD Designed one piece proprietary Forged monolithic hub design. Carrozzeria wheels are true forged wheels, purpose built for performance. Rather than using a market available generic forged blank, Carrozzeria wheel forgings are specific to each model we offer. Although this limits the amount of spoke designs and sizes we can offer, it nets a better quality product overall. Each wheel starts out as an aluminum billet that does not resemble a wheel. This Billet is then heated and placed into a 6000 ton controlled Hydraulic constant pressure forge and roll machine, This creates the basic shape of the wheel profile. This process is highly controlled to distribute the grain of the metal in a way that optimizes the strength of the wheel requiring less material (weight) needed in the final product. Constant pressure forging creates a more controlled and repeatable product than traditional drop forging.
After forging, the 90% forgings are turned and milled by robotic loaded CNC machines to remove material and give the wheel its final shape.
About our bearings:
Equipped with high quality smooth rolling bearings from genuine top tier bearing manufacturers. Currently the availability of counterfeit bearings is a worldwide epidemic. Core Moto only sources genuine brand name bearings from top tier bearing distributors or factory direct to ensure tolerances and material compositions meet specifications. Our bearings are in most cases larger and wider than stock for more stability. We also choose a bearing seal type that is suited for long service life when maintained properly. Ceramic bearings are available upon request as an upgrade. We only suggest using ceramic bearings or regularly maintained race bikes.
Cush drive bushings:
New wheels made by Core Moto come with serviceable 6 pot cylindrical Cush Drive System for High HP Applications. In 2016 Core Moto developed a new Cush drive bushing to replace all current and previous Carrozzeria Wheel bushing units. Our new bushing is now a single bonded hardened steel and firmer compound rubber unit. If your wheels were made before Core Moto started producing Carrozzeria wheels in 2016, improved bushings can be ordered in our genuine replacement parts section or from your favorite Core Moto dealer.
6 bolt anodized CNC aluminum sprocket carrier for V-Track models now is lighter, comes with metal locking sprocket nuts and an installed steel bearing retaining ring and bearing for all models. Our sprocket studs are fully re designed, now made from 2205 Duplex stainless steel, yielding more strength and superior corrosion resistance. The drive stud head profile has been optimized to offer more engagement of the bushing system for even load distribution per unit.
Spacers and distance tubes:
Anodized CNC Alloy Spacers, Carriers and Distance Tubes pre installed in the wheel. Some spacers will be shipped uninstalled for wheel packing reasons, but will come with a diagram for easy placement. Each part is either laser or mechanically engraved with unique part numbers to identify the placement location. Most front wheel spacers are now fully captive on the front using oil seals and bearing captive on the rear.
Rotor carriers will be pre mounted (except S1000RR for packing reasons) with stainless steel hardware as to not interfere with modern wheel speed sensor pickups. All rotor carriers are designed to accept OEM or aftermarket equivalent brake rotor discs and rotor bolts. New carriers are designed to optimize weight savings while offering a very rigid mount.
Speed sensor rings for ABS and TC:
Core Moto is now starting to incorporate our own speed sensor rings into the final product, allowing the customer to keep their sensor rings on their OEM wheels. Core Moto is the first in the industry to do this. This has not been fully implemented for all applications as we are adding them as we make new changes to the hardware. Some application will require reuse of both OEM rings while some applications may come with only one Core Moto Ring front or rear. Each application is different.
Each wheel will come with 90 degree aluminum valve stems installed.
Due to the bolt circle diameter of the cush drive system, All V-Track Wheels require the use of a Kawasaki bolt pattern sprocket.
You will need a sprocket to fit your current pitch 520-530. Then the proper tooth count. We can help
520 Chains = ZX-6R (2003-Current),
525 Chains = ZX-10R (2003-Current)
530 Chain = ZX-12R (2002-2006)
(Older 240 rear wheels will use a unique sprocket)

Parts diagram: Exploded view parts diagrams are included with most wheels orders. These are to be used to ensure you received the correct parts and put them in the right place when installing your wheels kit. This is to be kept for future use in case you need a new part due to loss or damage.
About Unsprung weight:
Properly set up suspension allows the lower portions (swingarm, wheels and forks) to move rapidly with the bumps and dips in the road or track surface while keeping the main structure of the vehicle on a stable un interrupted path. In short reducing unsprung weight allows the suspension to work better by reducing the mass that needs to be controlled on compression and rebound, keeping the tire traction on the ground and the chassis stable.
About Rotational mass:
Reducing rotational mass increases acceleration, decreases braking distances and improves handling. Lighter wheels decrease the amount of power needed to get the tires spinning. This also reduces the amount of braking power needed to slow down the spinning wheel down. Rapid transitions from acceleration to deceleration benefit greatly from lighter wheels. Gyroscopic force is also reduced with lighter wheels, improving handling by reducing the amount of force needed to tilt the spinning wheel axis side to side. The reduction of gyroscopic and rotational inertial forces are compounded by higher speeds.
