Ok, odd situation. I rode up to Davis tonight and got a damn nail in my tire, and it's not holding any pressure. It went from leak to flat in about a block. Fortunately it happened after I got off the freeway but my bike is now chained to a tree at a gas station next to a damned bar on a friday night 2 miles from my destination. It's chained down and has a disk lock but thats not going to keep people from messing with it if its there much longer..

A friend of mine somewhat nearby has a 2003 f4i. I can get to this wheel before I can get a new tire on my front wheel and before I can get a truck to move the bike. Does anybody know if the front wheel from the f4i will bolt right up so I can limp my bike home?

I know, I'm owned and this is faaaaaaar from an ideal workaround but hopefully somebody has either tried this before or knows the dimensions offhand :\

I just looked at my 01 F4i and 08 RR, and I think it might work. You'll have to swap your brake discs over, but I think that'll work. There may be something I'm missing, but the axle length and diameter seem to match, as well as the bolt pattern and spacing for the brakes. Mind you, that's an '08 I looked at.

No it will not work. The axel sizes are different, so thats your biggest problem along with a few others. The bearing pocket would need to be machined to house the 1krr bearings and I dont think you wanna do that, it just a tire ya need..lol
There goes that idea then. Thanks for the quick reply, looks like i'm going to get a uhaul van and some ropes to carry the bloody thing to a bike shop. I just hope its still there, and being chained down next to a bar all night, hasn't been peed on overnight...

buy a bottle of slime at your local auto store, put that in. put in some air. ride around at slow speeds to get the slime to set in. It works. I've tried it. i even went to the track once with slime in my tire. :beat: it's a good temp. fix until you can get a new tire. good luck.

I got a plug type repair kit, lets hope it holds up well. I've been told by several people before to stay away from slime, but that is awesome that it held up at the track. Now time to go pump some air into the tire with a bicycle pump...
