Question which wheels?

does anyone know;
1-weight difference between 2 types of front and rear wheels
2- is a 748 front wheel the same as the lighter one
3- if the lighter front or 748 or any other wheels can easily be made to fit the marzocchi forks with solid spindle
4- are there any other good cheap options suitable
5- anyone got any good options for sale

weighed a new and old type rears today- not very accurately on bathroom scales with disks and tyres on and both read exactly the same at 12.6kg!

Didn't think there was much in the weight of the rears, just that the later ones are a better quality alloy that doesn't distort so easily and the bearings don't drop out of as easily.

Also there are a big difference in the weight of some front brake discs, early Ducati ones being the worse that I know of

As for the fronts they can be found in
748
916
996
ST2
ST4 (i think)
M600
M620
M695
M696 ( I suspect are the same even though the rears aren't)
M750ie
M800
M900ie
M1000
MTS620
750SSie
800SS
900SSie

I think the fronts are more of a total saving but I believe the later rears have more of the weight near the center making them more efficient, (faster/optimized) although I don't know this for sure.
