    I've decided to trade my 2012 single seat 961 Commando for a 2018 Euro 4 dual seat model in Titanium Grey with about 600 miles on the clock.

    I really fancy however black rims rather than the bare alloy rims on the new bike. Does anybody fancy doing a swap?

    I'm based in the East Midlands.

    Rog, best ask the factory if they’re swappable due to ABS.
    I’ve been told by the factory that carbon wheels cannot be fitted to an ABS bike, although I’ve never looked at both side by side to understand what the actual issues are and how difficult they’d be to overcome.
    If anyone knows this, please share...

    I spoke to Clem today... Norton are happy to sell me new wheels but not just the rim.
    If I can’t source new anodised rims I think I’ll drop the current rims into Central Wheels to get them powder coated.

    What’s wrong with buying carbon wheels...?

    No photos yet… it’ll be delivered mid November and comes with a decat & shorties!
    I’m definitely going to change the rims & may also make a few other mods including opening up the air box… should be easier 2nd time around!
