    got my nrg wheels today, stuck the back one on and its goes in fine except for hitting the rear caliper so im going to look for a thinner caliper that will still work on my engine, or i may have to find somewhere that can machine it down so it fits under the wheel

    wheel on
    [​IMG]

    where its hitting off the caliper
    [​IMG]

    pipe goes on fine aswell
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    and i took the caliper off and its all fine so i need to sort the caliper out
    [​IMG]

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    nowt wrong with the wheel nibbs its just the paint chips off putting tyre on

    was bored again lol so decided to have a go at grinding the caliper a little and bit of the wheel, if it went wrong id only lost a wheel and a caliper afterall

    anyway did abit on the caliper then shaped some littel cuts into the wheel and it finally sits over the caliper nicely ;) i know the wheel wont be as strong as it used to be but i havnt taken that much off and the bike wont get ridden hard everyday anyway so it should be ok , if not ill just put runner wheel back on

    [​IMG]

    i need to clean up the grinds on the wheel and cal then there both going down to be painted with the front wheel tomorrow

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    took the wheels to be painted an picked up a few more bits today
    :D
    [​IMG]
