It looks like the BST carbon fiber wheels save about 6 lbs to 8 lbs of rotating weight per wheel. This must provide a significant noticeable improvement in acceleration, engine braking, and handling. I'm considering doing this even though it's a really expensive upgrade!
On the other hand I hate being a "first adopter". Anyone out there have any experience with these wheels?

If you've got the money to spend, why not! Seems a bit excessive to spend so much on a 'cheap' bike, especially considering it handles pretty well already!

I'd want to know how well they hold up long-term, on the street, where they maybe could fracture on the edge of a pothole. Or maybe not; but I've usually seen them on the racetrack.

I'm working hard to make my "cheap" bike an "expensive cheap" bike. I love the bike and the way it handles, no question. For me, the lighter, the better.

My last project of making a cheap bike an expensive bike was starting with a stock Harley Sportster and doubling the cost by doing a Storz conversion. Couple of pics attached.
