The BST front wheel is going to be different on the HP4. The HP's rotors aren't going to work on the BST S1K fitment. The HP4 has a traditional front rotor design. I offered my bike to Brock's Performance (BST US importer) to get measurements for the HP4 when it comes in.
I would think if you have a complete front S1K BST w/s1k rotors it would mount up to the HP4. I hope to find out soon.

My dealer here in Texas said they got them on the docks and I can possibly pick it up Friday and yes I can't wait

You should find a blue that would match better. But yeah rim tape is a great option if you bought the STD. Also then no one would scorn you for having a "fake" competition model (like if you painted the wheels)
