 Apologies if this is repeating whats already common knowledge, i did a search but getting older an stoopider.... I have been looking at R1/R6/FZ1 front wheels so I can get different/stickier front tyres, given up on the off road thing for the time being,  I have found a few here and there from the correct years but on one side they have a " Hex" type casting instead of round, are these wheels correct?

 

 here's a pic of one with the hex thing..

Hex wheels are no good, round ones roll so much better, even the cavemen sussed that one.....

Current toys: '99 XT600E, 2000 4TX, '82 Princess 30DS (where the username comes from), No longer a '03 Fazer thou.

Save the planet, it's the only one with beer!

 Actually, they didn't.. 3500-4000bc for the wheel, cavemen way earlier.. Maybe they did invent square wheels due to the handbrake not being invented till centuries later.. :good: :good: :lol: :lol:
