Thanks again Charlie. The wheel, cush drives & sprocket carrier are all GSXR600 K3 as far as I'm aware. Wheel & cush drive came from the same seller who was breaking his bike for parts & the sprocket/carrier was listed as GSXR600 K3. I'll sort it. Many thanks for the heads-up on the gearing/530 :thumbup

Here is a clear picture of the cush drive you need. Mine was a TL1000 of a 2000 application. Hope this helps visually.

Remove 6mm off the gear face and done. :thumbup

Cheers for the pic Charlie, unfortunately that's the 6 chamber type and my wheel is a GSXR600 5 chamber cush drive type and it won't fit. Wondering if I've bought a non compatible wheel if this is what I've got to use....

That may be the issue. I bought the complete wheel setup so came with correct cush drive. Did some research looks like the 5 pad cush is the thin design and the 6 is the tall design needed to machine the gear face. Hope that helps. Means you will have to get the other rim design. :(

Cheers Charlie, yes Its kinda looking that way isn't it. Typically, I paid more for a really nice set of almost unmarked GSXR600 wheels :roll:
