BST Carbon Fibre 5 Spoke Wheels for Yamaha VMX1700 V-MAX 2009> onwards - Road & Race


The BEST modification you will ever make ...a set of BST Wheels is the easiest and most beneficial all-round performance modification you can make to your bike.

The V-Max VMX1700's BST wheels are unique to the model and have been produced as the result of a detailed and intensive development and testing programme.

Front: 18" x 3.5"
Rear: 18" x 8.0"


  • Front wheel weight 3.9 kg / 8.6 lb. (Yamaha/OEM wheel approx. 5.45 kg; i.e. 1.55 kg front wheel weight saving)
  • Rear wheel measured weight, complete with all bearings, spacers, seals, spline drive and cush 7.3 kg / 16.1 lb. (Yamaha/OEM 8.5" wheel approx. 11.4 kg, i.e. 4.1 kg / 9.0 lb rear wheel weight saving)
  • Total approx. pair/set weight saving, 5.6 kg / 12.4 lb
HPS supplies your BST V-Max wheels complete and ready to install using a standard sized front and a 240 section rear tyre. The linked images (see link below) show the rear wheel's hub arrangement and splined cush assembly which interfaces directly with the shaft drive output.

"Pushing the bike is already easier thanks to the ceramic bearings but this is far from preparing you to the dramatic change in handling… This is just another bike!

At 63kg, lets say 70 with full gear and wet, it used to be quite a challenge to change the bike angle once a turn is initiated, especially with the precision required. Not only is this now possible, but it requires so little strength!

Cleaner trajectories can be achieved with much less experience of the road. Another benefit, is the improved acceleration and braking. Not as significant as in the handling department but impressive for a bike with already first class acceleration.

PS: no full scale, reflex shot pictures yet because of the poor weather here. But they are still gorgeous ;-) "

Choose from a range of optional coloured finishes at HPS...

Please note the intensity of the colours varies significantly with lighting conditions and the colour only becomes apparent in brighter light.

Please also note that, as has been widely performed on the VMX1700 (and as with all 240 section rear tyre installations) the plastic inspection cover requires removal and the access aperture to be covered with industrial tape.

Please contact us if you require any further information or explanation about the wheels.

Protect Your Expensive Wheels & Discs - For Less Than the Price of a Tyre!

Professional Cordura Foam Cell Padded Heavy Duty Motorcycle Race Wheels Transport & Storage Bags, made in the UK.

Transporting and storing spare pairs of complete motorcycle wheels (with discs and tyres, etc., installed) has always been a problem.

They can be heavy, are often dirty and they can fall and/or roll around in your van/vehicle, often suffering expensive damage or causing damage to your bike.

So... for less than the price of a front tyre ...HPS now has the solution for you with our ultra heavy duty, padded wheel and tyre transport bags.

"Top quality these wheel bags masses of room left. These are for a set of wets for my minitwin but they would easily take my Hayabusa wheels. When I need new tyres I will throw them in the back of the car in these beauties."

DM, Derbyshire

"For my R1 and 848 Wets. Absolutely superb item. Great quality and value. Worth paying the extra for over similar others available. Got 2 sets, one for my Big Bang R1 track bike and one for Ducati 848 Evo Corse SE wets. Durable and strong. A+ Many thanks."
