rims?

I have a set of 2008 zx14 rims that I would like to use on my concourse 14 2009. I'm told the front maybe a direct swap but nothing about the rear. Anyone do this already and what were the problems?

My plan is to have a spare set with new tires mounted and ready for tire changes.

Thanks

Lou

Shaft vs chain drive rear may be the issue..

I was hoping someone new of a conversion kit or something. Oh well, I will need to sell the rear and pickup a concours rim I guess.

Just bought a concourse 2011 rear rim to use for my tire swap. Now I need rotors for both wheels, bearings and rotor for the rear than i'll send out the rims to get power coated.
So it looks like can either keep the 2008 rear zx14 rim and use it as a spare for the zx14r (but I will need another front) or sell it.

Does any one know the weight difference between the zx14r rims and the gen 1 rims?

14r rims are a few lbs lighter than gen1 rims.

These rims are for my concours so weight isn't an issue. I did get a set, a 2008 concours rear in great shape and the 2008 zx14 gen1 front also in great shape. Working on getting them powder coated next.
