Alright, here it is...finally got the replacement Carrozzeria wheel for the one that cracked last year. Ordered it about a month ago after deciding I wasn't going to overcome my OCD of have mismatched wheels! lol...Luke from CoreMoto (the new makers of Carrozzeria as of a year ago), gave me a generous discount on it if I sent him the old one so they can analyze the failure mode. Ended up costing me $700 because they also reused the hardware from the old one (spacers, rotor holder, sprocket holder, fasteners, etc.). Retail is like $1100 I think, unless they changed the prices for this year.
So now I have 2 full sets of wheels. The OEM's will be used with rain tires on wet days, and probably for supersport races with DOT's, where you can't use aftermarket wheels and slicks per the rules, as well as probably some track days where I don't care if I'm like half a second slower and I don't want to burn up my slicks. The forged wheels will be used with slicks for most dry races or whenever I want to really push it.
Also got me a shock spring and a set of fork springs to hopefully dial in the suspensions a bit better. Up until now the rear was too stiff and the front was a bit on the soft side. I went 1 size up in stiffness on the fork springs and 2 sizes down on the shock. I'm hoping I made the right decision there.
