So the response from Rotobox is:

Hello Richard!
Thank you very much for your email and most of all for your interest in Rotobox wheels!

We have fitment for Indian FTR 1200 for which we can offer you:
BULLET model in size: 17x3.5/6.0
or BOOST model in sizes: 17x3.5/5.5/6.0 and 19x3.0


You can also choose to CUSTOMIZE YOUR WHEELS!

However, we haven't measured the new model, 2022 Indian FTR R Carbon yet, therefore we can't assure you that this would fit. If it is possible, can you please see attached drawings and check and please let us know?
Where are you from Richard?
We would love to make wheels for you!

Best regards,


So.....I assume they don't know about the changes to the 2022 abs sensor yet.

If you’re doing it for weight, a guy in the other forum put bst 17s on his 19. And his bike wet is only a few lbs lighter than mine. But his wallet is much lighter.

I had BST's on my 600RR.....I just like them aesthetically and the way they rode. I'm trying to make sure I leave my kids nothing. ;) I'm just a tinkerer with all my toys.

I have been traveling racing and doing my trackside tire support ALOT over the past few weeks so I haven't been on here much so I apologize for the lack of info...

I have partially better news, 6.0 rear wheelsets are supposedly ready and I am somewhat expecting tracking/shipping info over the next few days.

Those that did the group by with me are all getting 6.0 wheels now, I have emailed my customers directly to keep them informed whenever I get info, which is not often enough...

Thanks to those that ordered through me, I am grateful for your patience, I wish there was more I could do with this turd circus.

I just want to get my customers taken care of RFN!

Nice, I’m still learning bike geometry after working mostly on 4 wheeled vehicles and snow machines my whole life. My Tiger is 17/21 and feels much more “flickable” into a corner, but less stable overall than my FTR with 18/19. Are you expecting something along those lines with this move?

Just in case a newbie doesn’t read the other Titax post, I’ll post here too :

I asked again for refund and here is Lumir’s answer
« Dear customer, you’ll have the tracking number on friday, shipping on monday » and same ol’shit : no tracking number, no shipping.
I have asked for refund for 10 times now.
I’ve never had business with such a shitty company, I’ll post it on all forums I’m member in (a dozen).
If it were a 200€ Deal I might habe given up but here we’re talking about 2000€.
This is the worst online shopping I’ve been involved in !!!!

little fyi for anyone planning to install 17" wheels. There's a plastic cable guide on the rear swingarm that could get in the way with the wider tire.

Remove the bolt, drill a little hole for the forward ziptie and slide it so it lines up like this:

Titax may just be too late for most, knowing the 2022 17" wheels will fit straight up....

rear 100% sure
front 90% sure, to be confirmed by the end of the week most likely

🤷‍♂️

Hey Max I’ve been talking with a guy that runs in the super hooligans. He was saying that the 2022 front has a different position for the ABS so it won’t be compatible with the 2019…I. Actually wondering if you could put the 2019 ABS ring onto the 2022 front wheel???…your thoughts…🤔

That’s true, however, the 2022 sensor seems to have the same connector (and the same electronic pulse shape) as the 2019 one. Stay tuned.

the 2019 pulse ring won’t fit the 2022 wheel…
