URGENT ADVICE needed - Re: 426 Supermoto Wheels
Posted January 22, 2005 - 04:38 PM
I have a couple of options at the moment, but I'm not sure if they'd work. The first is some KLR650 rims. These are going cheap, but It'd mean getting some hubs and a spoke set - at what price though??
The second is a complete wheel set from a TT600- three spokers. See:
These would be ideal but the bid's up soon, and I'm obviously not gonna bid if I don't know if they'll fit.
Now, they're all 17", but I dunno about spindle sizes or whether they would be incompatible due to swingarm, calipers etc....
Anyone got any ideas
(BTW - I'm running an '02 426F)

if you're Really on a budget, the way to go is sportsman rubber, $150 tires on your stock rims, and the bike is much more capable than you'd imagine. there's plenty of guys out there that can spank me on stock rims
also post up wanted ads at www.supermotojunkie.com. good luck!

But you're right - looks like my best option is to get Yammy purpose built wheels. I was dreaming that I could either pick up some cheap hybrid wheels
or get hold of cheap rims/hubs and spokes and do it myself. Doesn't look likely. The problems could be thousandfold.
Looks like I'll haveta see the bank manager to get Supermoto'd
