gone straight to work on finding the bits needed :)
got a Ducati 1198 rear hub assembly with only 5k miles usage winging its way to me from Holland,
found someone on another forum with a 1098 ten spoke rear that i am just waiting to hear back about, otherwise
have found a slightly different pattern one over in the states for a reasonable price as well.
i have a ducati 2pot rear caliper in my box of bits, so if it looks like a big job to fit the MV F4 Nissin 4pot i will fit
the Duc 2pot for the time being and sort the Nissin out later at my leisure.
Tyre is already on order, after the last one got damaged when fitting

hub nuts now in my possesion :) will be looking for some 1.5mm alloy sheet to make a shim for the hub, then will
look to start the re fit of the rear end.
I have sent a message to Chaz at B&C Express asking about the avalability of 43 and 45 tooth rear sprockets to fit the OEM Ducati
sprocket holder, or weather i will need to fit a race quick change sprocket holder and lightweight sprocket to get the size fitment i need, could do without the extra cost at the moment, but it would look the dogs.
will also need a new front sprocket and 525 chain to complete the change over.

got a swift reply from Chaz at B&C Express, sprockets, sprocket carrier and new chain now on order, was a bit of a shock to the wallet
at £290 FFS
to keep things easy with fitting i went with the 525 chain option.
have been round to mates with alloy shim for hub, he will roll it into a tube for me sometime at work before the weekend. he is also just about to start on my fork cap extensions, so should have them in soon.
got the new fork seals so will be fitting them today.

It will (or should :help ) make a big difference i hope, the wheel is MUCH MUCH lighter than the car wheel, the Ducati hub with lightweight sprocket carrier are also much lighter than the VFR one coming off.
in total i would guess that i will be around 14lb lighter at the rear.
also i will be fitting a tyre that is supposed to be fitted to this rim, so will have a profile that is more in tune for going round corners than the one coming off.

Pleased to read about the new rear wheel, sounds like that will be much better. :clap

Each to their own and all that, but I always felt that car rear wheel was more for show than function.

Bike is now back on stands, with no wheels!
took the rear hub out and removed the disc, so i could fit it to the Ducati axle,
not a problem with fitment as the disc was made for a Ducati 1098 anyway :)
only real problem i did have was removing the OEM disc, the mounting bolts were held
in place with thread lock, and my allen keys were just rounding the bolt head, I had to go "Jungle" on
its ass and ended up with using a hammer and cold chisel to get them out :angel I was ok with replacement bolts
as the ones that came out of the honda axle are Ti that i had replaced the OEM ones with.
now just waiting for mate to get back to me with the hub shim, so i can get on with checking the rear caliper
mounting bracket fitment.

not a lot done last night!
tried to get the wheel into powder coaters, but there had been an accident on the A1 and it was grid lock, so couldnt get there before closing time.
bled and sorted rear caliper, now good to go.

wheel is now back from powder coating, at tyre fitters at this very moment, should have it fitted by 5,
then it will be on with re fitting the forks and front wheel to get her all reassembled ready for the weekend.

Pics to follow :)

Nice !

So that's a Honda front wheel, and a Ducati rear ?

They match really well. ( Spokes that is, not just colour )

Showing my ignorance here. Is that big nut all that holds the rear wheel on ? :eek

Must be some sort of safety locking mech incorporated into it ?

the difference is vast!! handles like it should, no more need for use of body weight to get it through corners, drops into them with very little effort now.
plus i had to back off the compression damping, with the rear wheel weighing so much less than it did, it was a bit harsh.

i have got hold of an MV F4 rear brake hanger plate, am hoping that it will be a direct replacement for the 1098R one i have fitted at the moment.
if it is, i will be able to re fit my MV 4 pot rear caliper to the 1098 hub, which will get the rear brake back to how i like it.
the left hand engine hanger plate that i made a new one of, is in for powder coating along with all the bits from my GS.
will be removing the engine, giving it a refresh and re paint once the GS is finished and back on the road.

MV caliper hanger bracket has arrived (cheers Ash) will attempt to fit it soon.
fingers crossed it is just going to need fitting without having to do any modifications to it, but
as with everything to do with "specials", I doubt it

well as expected the MV hanger wont be a direct swap!! it will fit the hub but is for a smaller disc and isnt off set enough for the 1098 fitment,
not a big problem though, I recon i can make a bracket that will get it sorted, or i can get the VFR hanger machined to fit, either way i can get the 4 pot Nissin re fitted, will just take a bit more work than i was planning on.
