Anyone need XR650R wheels?

13 posts in this topic

Yeah its a bit on the high side. Especially for a set.

New complete single 650 wheel sets go for $200-400 on Ebay.

Curiously Talon/Excell 650 wheelset brandnew arent that much more. They can be had for around $550 if ya find a deal.

Yeah I got my complete extra set of wheels for my 650L off ebay and they were in great condition very few scratches and paid less than $500 for the set. :)

Well, I priced them at $800.00 because I saw a set go for $810.00 on Ebay about a month or so ago. They did not have the brake rotors and were not in as good of shape. These have only 22 miles on them. And only asphalt. No offroading. Anyway, thought I would offer them up here before they go on Ebay. Any offers?

yeah that's a hard call. if they are really that clean $800 is skimming the top just a little but still a decent price. when it comes to wheels you can't beat a clean OEM setup. imho. however, nowadys people's eyes light up like indians looking at glass beads when they see the shinny top shelf stuff being sold in the aftermarket...i.e. excell and talon.

stick it on ebay, set the reserve around $700 and let em fight it out. i'd buy the rear from you if you were selling it seperate.

I will offer $300 for the rear. Sorry-but thats as high as i will go. If neither Thunderchicken nor Ebay snags it-then lemme know and i will take it.

No they wont fit as I have found out first hand when I tried a 650r rear wheel on my L and the axle bolt from my bike was too small for the wheel. Seems they beefed up the axle bolt for the R. Im not totally sure about the front wheel though. Your best bet is to just get a set of wheels from a 93 or newer L . :)
