Description

This is for a full set of BST rims and sprocket to go with the rear rims.  A rear sprocket is all you need to mount these, however we include one on the house.  You use your stock rotors or anything rotor that replaces your stock rotors to mount these.


Blackstone Tek (BST) Rims are the best motorcycle rims available today. BST Wheels have the lowest unsprung weight and moment of intertia compared to current aftermarket wheels, and are lighter and stronger than traditional aluminum or magnesium wheels. Best of all they have the same unique look that only carbon fiber can offer. All BST wheels are DoT, JWL and TUV compliant and have individual serial numbers.


BST wheels will save you anywhere between 40-60% in weight, and more importantly are designed to deliver the lowest moment of inertia-the critical factor that affects the performance of the bike.


Because BST can engineer with carbon fiber and maximize on its properties of high strength and low weight, BST has reduced the weight in the spokes and rim without compromising strength.  The weight is therefore concentrated in the hub, which means that rotational inertia is reduced, making the bike easier to handle and allowing you to accelerate and brake faster.


The entire process is managed under ISO9002 standards.  BST designed the tooling, moulds, wheel and the hubs and manufacturers them on site.  Cutting machines such as those used in the aeronautical industry ensure that the process is guaranteed repeatable and it meets high certified standards.  Layup is done in a clean room (dust-free, temperature controlled).


Wheels are cured in an Autoclave at 125 degrees C and 6 bar of pressure.  This step produces the best compaction and surface finish


Every step of the process is logged, and the entire history of each wheel is stored.


Your choice to have BST wheels include professionally installed ceramic wheel bearings by Worldwide Bearings.

The wheels are the 5-Spoke model in the same sizes as the stock wheels unless noted otherwise.

Perfect Performance
I'm mainly a track day guy and can say these wheels will improve your lap times. This is a performance product with no down side; acceleration, braking and turning are all improved.

I dropped my PB time at Road Atlanta by 1.8" and top speed increased by about 5mph (I use a 50hz GPS lap timer). No other changes were made to the bike, I simply went faster with the same amount of effort. Or, if you're so inclined, you can maintain your current speed with less effort.

Fit and finish are world class, they look as well as they perform. Highly recommended!

One of the absolute best performance upgrades! Unsprung weight, rotating mass, accelerating and decelerating mass, the majority of the mass in the wheel is in the hub. This is a modification that is always 'working' and does not touch engine/fuel/exhaust.

To give an example, riding freeway doing 70 or so, when I row the bars back and forth hard, I can do it in about 3/4 second, with these wheels I can row back and forth in about 1/2 a second.

The bike is instantly supremely flickable.
