I'm not sure if the one from the L will fit. But I do know that one from an XR400 will. I found one here from a fellow TT member. But ebay is definitly a good place to look as well. Good luck with your search.

If the "crack" is limited to the fabricated factory seam then you should be able to repair by welding. A competent welder can put it back together no problem. Ensure 100% weld penetration or welded from both sides and ground smooth.

If you have a crack outside the seam or metal fatigue with elongation (stretch) then I would definitely replace.

I have repaired rims by welding with separation at the seam previously with no further issues.

Hope this helps.
