Guys, keep away from cast iron wheels. Stick to spoked wheels as these are significantly lighter. (Trust me, I have been doing this for 4 years)
Hmm Cast Iron? Not many rims made from that material any longer. Good advice though. Cast Iron rims no good.

On the front I used a XJ 650 yamie rim(could'nt find a front to match the back, but it's close)Changed the front wheel bearings to suit the original WR yamie axel and then machined the 650 disk down to the WR400 disk size. Made up wheel spacers to suit, and even managed to get the original WR speedo to work with it(not very accurate though). I used these wheels on my WR400 to
ride to work and around town during summer. From memory I think the front is 18" & the rear 16". turns on a dime on the bituman. I reckon that with a bit of searching in the wreckers & a measuring tape u will find somthing that will do the job with a little bit of work. I currently have mine for sale with my bike. Going to upgrade at the end of the year. Will seperated them though If someone wants them. $400.00 Aust plus frieght.Hope this helps.
