Normally a DRZ400 forumer, but my Brother in law has been looking for some motard wheels for his 2005 WR450F for some time now. I've the opportunity to buy some Excel rims laced to "Straight pull Yamaha hubs". The wheels were from a Yamaha XT660 Motard bike.

Some approximate measurements:

Front wheel hub 114mm wide, with 40mm diameter bearing cavities. Brake disc PCD 150mm with inner diameter of 132mm.

Rear wheel hub 140mm wide, with 40mm diameter bearing cavities. Brake disc PCD 133mm with inner diameter of 115mm.

Info from the wheels:

Rear: RK Excel E17 M/C X MT4.25 DOT
Front: RK Excel E17 M/C X MT3.50 DOT

There are no brake rotors fitted etc. Are these suitable for the WR? What would still be left to buy? How much would those things cost? And, finally how much is a fair price to pay for these in $USD or $AUD?

Thanks in advance.
