I'm looking at a set of new gold OZ wheels for my 03' Tuono but the owner can't tell me if they fit a radial brake set up or the standard calipers that I need. Do any of you know how to tell the difference without a part number?

Knowing the year of the wheels will help. The early OZ were not radial compatible without spacers.

are these the wheels on ebay brand new in the box?

I asked that same question no response.

The way to tell the difference is to measure the width of the hub from disc mounting face to disc mounting face. I don't have the figures but the wheel for the radial brakes measures 5mm wider across the mounting faces than the than the standard wheel..

So will the wheels on ebay fit on any year mille or rsvr with the standard Brembo brakes?

The only bike that came with gold wheels was the 03-RSVR and it had the radial calipers.

So if those are genuine, not refinished wheels, they will not fit on a std Tuono.

Attached is a photo that shows the measurement at the rotor mounting flange.

110mm = Axial mount caliper
115mm = Radial mount caliper

Bringing this one back from the past. Trying to get some clarification on a Gen2 bike. We just got our hands on an 04 bike that has Showa forks. It has axial mount calipers. Will it be the same 110mm as the Gen 1 bikes. Also, can anyone give me the AF1 part number for the spacers they sell (or used to sell)? Can't seem to find them. Thank you.

Gen2 w/Showa uses axial mount calipers, therefore front rotor hub spacing is 110mm.
Don't know if those custom made spacers are still available from AF1.

Actually....that doesn't help at all. This does.

Abarth was the user in here that had the file for a machine shop. Clicking on the link shows 'invalid product' on AF1 website. I would call them or reach out to Abarth via PM and see if he can provide the files. His profile says he was on earlier today.

Or, you could go this route....

Thanks all. Doesn't look like I need the spacers as this 2004 has axial mount. Good that Smaltmoto has the spacers as I have two sets of old gen wheels and may some day end up with a Gen 2 that has radial mount.
