I just got through re-registering my bike last month and she just turned three years old. So I decided to give her a little present. Thanks in part to my buddy TapnRak for sending me the link to Royce636 for the wheel kit(awsome kit by the way). And that's what started it all. Then I got on Ebay and what'd you know, here are some pics of her with new shoes.
before:


front wheel swap








home made front axle tool:


rear wheel swap

I thought about having them powder coated gold or kawi green but when I installed it the OE color closely matches the engine covers and stuff.

Yup, better than paying $40 bucks to have one wheel dismounted and mounted.

Nice job, but I think that you should invest in a manual tire changer. You can pick some up for as little as $100 used.

Thanks man. The front spacers for the 05-06 and 03-04 are identical. So are the cush drives and sprocket carriers. Saved me a ton of $$ from buying aftermarket wheels. Now I can get a steering damper.

did use the stock 03 wheel spacers on the rear ? because if you did not the geometry will be off . so make sure you used the 03 wheel spacers on the rear (very important)with the wheel kit

Yes I did. I only used my OE front spacers because the 05 front wheel was missing one spacer. On the rear, I used all my spacers plus the one axle spacer from you.

Let me be the first to say that your bike is the "FIRST" 03 in Guam with the wheel mod! It looks awesome! The wheels really made a big difference and as you said, performance wise, because of the larger rotors. Ride safe buddy. What's next for our bikes? :D

P.S. Thanks for the rear tire.[:M121]
