Lighter rear wheel?

Hello expertise

What other lighter rear wheel than stock fits into my ZX9-00 swingarm?

I weighed the stock rear wheel and it was 14 kg:s with disc. That is only 0,7 kg:s lighter than the ZX7 rear, wich is often referred to as a "boat anchor".

Kind regards

- What year R1 rim would that be, and does the brake calipers match?

In all: is it just a question about spacers, or other modifications too?

Kind regards

BST CF wheels are a lot lighter. Not cheap though.
