    Need help identifying my rim

    Iím trying to replace the front rotors on my 2003 speed triple and the rotors donít fit. I believe my bike was in an accident before I bought it and they must have replaced my rim with another triumph rim when they fixed it. From the research Iíve done it looks like the rotors I bought are correct for my bike (stock). The new rotors I bought have a narrow bolt pattern and have a dome to them, while the old ones that came off my bike have a wide bolt pattern and are completely flat. Please help me identify my rim so I can get rotors that will fit my bike.

    Before writing you should present in the designated area...

    having said that, your "speed puzzle" has a wheel of a GSXR 600 K6 and K7

    What designated area? This is TS3, the rules here are merely a playful suggestion

    Thanks.

    As I suspected, previous owner has done a GSXR front end swap.

    I doubt it was the result of a crash - unless you can see specific evidence such as scratching on the frame.

    Your model came with conventional forks, which were/are okay, however one of the simplest suspension upgrades was to fit a GSXR front end to give USD forks, notably better brakes and handling.
    Obviously this explains why it has a GSXR front wheel.
    It was possible to retain the Triumph wheel, but that required messing around with axles and spacers - simpler to just use all GSXR parts.
