numbers on wheels

i need a front wheel for my bike. does anyone know what the numbers mean? i have two:
J17XMT3.50 & F-1286
i was told that the "f" number has to match to work with my bike. i can't find one anywhere. i have a 97 zx6r, will any other years or bikes work?

Hi want2ride-

You posted this exact topic before on a previous thread shown in the hyperlink. Why don't you just add a comment to that earlier thread and kick it back up to the top?

because everyone was replying to the wheel straightening part. i know that i cant do that cause the flat spot is at the end of the spoke. so now i am looking for a used wheel and wanted some info. it is pretty hard to find my exact year and model, so i need to know if there are any other wheels that would work. i know it's a 3.5X17, but i'm sure not every 3.5X17 would work. i've looked on kawasaki's website for part numbers and they are the same for a few surrounding years and even the 750's and 900's. i want to know if the bearings and axle diameter is the same, that's what i think that f number represents. but i'm not gonna spend 200 bux on a wheel that i'm not positve is gonna work.

thanx for the info though, i wasnt aware it would move it up, i just thought a more specific topic would be better.

Hi want2ride-

Here's to kicking this topic back up to the top of the page! Not familiar with those wheels so I'll keep my fingers crossed that somebody will have that exact model for you on eBay soon.

I found one on eBay. It's no good to you, though, it's in Aus. However, the auction states that it's for a 1995 - 1997 model, so that should help you a little.

Good luck!

thanx for the support guys, but i'm gonna bite the bullet and order a new one. it's getting too nice out and whose to say what condition a used on is gonna be in. i guess i'd rather spend the extra 200 and get new.

At least you'll know its history from the get-go.
