LOVE IT!!!! That 08 is looking sick !! Next to switching to a full system, there's no weightloss mod I could feel as much as my Carrozzeria wheels. ....and they're friggin beautiful too! It took over one year before I got used to the feeling of light rims in the corners. The big 14 felt less planted but it never faltered one bit even after I gained 100% confidence in the wheels. CM is a great company and improved upon CZ which already was making a product that increased performance and made the bike look extra special at the same time. Considering the price point, these are an excellent choice even comparing them to carbon fiber rims. Also, I think a bit more reliable. My 08 sustained a crash where we slid (and flipped side over side at least twice). I still have the same air in the tires as the day I crashed. I haven't removed the wheels to do a runout test but I expect they're in spec as they were the 10 years they were in use.

Morgstang, congratulations sir, those are indeed some sick wheels, I bet that thing handles much lighter now in the corners!

Thanks for the compliments. Im still waiting for them to come in.
Rook you made an interesting point about the bike feeling really planted with stock wheels.
That was the first thing i thought about if i was going to lose that plainted feeling.

Morg, I wouldn't worry about a thing, I have the superlight carbon fiber OEM wheels on my S1000RR and the first time I rode it I thought to myself "why haven't I been using these all along, it's almost like cheating?" Every aspect of the ride is improved, the suspension works better, the turn in is much quicker with lower effort and the acceleration is better. There is no downside and I adapted almost instantly to the quicker reaction, you'll love them!
