Wheels for the RS?

I'm sure this has been discussed before, but I don't have the time to wade thru it all.
So, has anybody upgraded the wheels on their RS?
How much weight can you save?
What are the handling benefits?
And the all important question, what did it cost?
Pictures are a must!!
Thanks,
Lenny

but there doesn't seem to be much interest around here.

Lenny, PM me, and I'll send you some information I've researched, and please keep us posted on your findings.

Re:Wheels For The RS?

Are you talking rims for the the RS? or the tires? If it's rims I've been using rims from http://www.acschnitzer.com/englisch/motorrad/index.html since almost day one, the rear rim is 6" with a 190 Metzler tire, I got almost 7000 miles off of it and about to put a 200 on it in a few weeks, can't tell you if it improved anything but it sure didn't make anything go wrong! I also put on Wilbur shocks at the same time, don't know if any of that helps you but feel free to get a hold of me and I can answer more questions for you if you have any.
