I know this an old thread but what exactly did you do to the sprocket carrier to make it fit. I'm doing a similar thing but if I cant get it to fit I might have to try a CBR1000FL/M rear wheel.

It's machined down where the sprocket bolts, studs removed and replaced by bolts also machined in the centre. I can't remember the measurements though, 8mm rings a bell ?, there is also a stepped 3mm flanged spacer. front sprocket is RC30 in 520 pitch. you'll need to make measurements to be sure you get it right though. It wasn't difficult, just lots of measuring.

Excellent, thanks, and did the sprocket carrier bearing have to be recessed as well

No it's machined almost flush with the outer edge of the bearing so there is no dust seal, not really a problem as it's a sealed bearing anyway

The spacer that goes inside the sprocket carrier, the one from the inside I cut in half, then the outer spacer I had made to go half way into the sprocket carrier bearing, it's a tight fit so the spacer never falls out.
