I would look at the Raider wheel. It might accept the Bolt's pulley and rotor. Hard to tell from pictures.

Update.
Yes, by the way...
Moved foot controls forward.For about 11.5cm.
Basically front mounting bolt hole is now rear mounting bolt hole.Shifting rod replaced by custom made(in 15 min).
Brake light switch wire need to be extended, brake lanes need to be extended.Bought brake line of the same model.Will try to put line from caliper to "pump" instead of Master cylinder to "pump".
Job for a weekend (when it won't rain as I don't have a garage)

Update...
Well...260 Metzeler ME888 tyre on 8,5" rim wont fit in the stock swingarm.It might fit on 8" rim but You have to check it by Yourself.It might fit on 8,5" rim with a little mods,but I wont do any mods to the stock swingarm for 260 wheel.For 300 wheel,than yes ;)
In a different swingarm but the 260 wheel will be on My bike in about month or two...Work will be done only at the weekends that's why is so slow process...
Also I want to put a whole different exhaust system...Will be done after the wheel is on the bike as a lot of thing must be considered to "pair" it with the bike.
Any opinions more then welcome.
