    SO my 5th gen front rim has a gnarley whack in it. I have been on the hunt for a stock front wheel ( still looking if anyone has one)

    Was curious tho, do any of the other generation VFR wheels fit on the 5th gen?? I'm guessing not but always worth an ask yeah?

    Thanks for any and all info. . - MotoMax

    5 and 6 Gen front wheels are the same. So essentially any wheel 98-2013 (2009 state side).

    BTW, If no one chimes in soon, take a look on ebay, I've had pretty good luck with finding some good wheels for a good price. I had to replace my dented 5 gen wheel and actually got it from a local salvage yard who sells on ebay.

    Have you investigated getting the wheel straightened? I ran over a lump of wood on my ST1100 and put a decent dent in that, which a local expert pressed out for very little money, didn't even need repainting. You might try local businesses that repair car wheels.

    were you able to notice a difference in the ride before and after on the dented wheel you had fixed, @Terrry
