    No, they won't. You need the XB swingarm and axle, also the XB triple/forks up front.

    You can put a xb wheel on Blast forks. I've done it. You need custom spacers and caliper bracket.
    Tuber wheels come from the tube framed Buells from 1995-2002

    Maybe put a belt and sprocket around the front wheel too, make it 2wd! LOL

    Speed the tuber wheels are the wheels from the older tube (conventional) frame buells not the fuellers (XB range). jetlee can answer the next question better than me but if you had double belts then you would need double belt tensioners (pulleys) if its anything like the XB`s? i dont think you would have room for both? plus what bracket would you use? (I hope this info isnt irrelevant to blast models!)
