I have a like new stock 450 complete wheel with brand new maxxis tire rode on one time with brand new oem sprocket, wheel only has like 4 rides total on it, no bends or wobbles all the spokes are tight, basically brand new except for one scrape. I will take 300 plus shipping.

Thats a pretty good deal. I already bought a rear hub and going to build my own wheel. I'm in need of a front hub now, front and rear disk if anyone has them to spare.

Yes I believe they will fit a yz 400, and How is that not a good deal, the tire and heavy duty tube are 100 alone. Try finding a like new rear wheel for 200 with brand new sprocket. 300 for wheel new sprocket, like new tire and new tube good luck.

^^^ Thanks, I thought it was a good deal. You lacing your wheels by yourself or are you having it done? If you are having it done, what are you paying as I need a set laced and new to know what a good deal to have them laced is. Thanks.

I lace up my own wheels. Its not really that hard, just takes some patience.

^^^ patience is not one of my strong points. Thanks though.

I laced up a set of wheels for the first time a couple weeks ago and it really was not too bad...you should give it a shot.

BTW...saw your ad on craigslist for your excel /talon wheelsets...sell those yet? We live pretty close, I'm in the Bothell/Mill Creek area.

If you bring in the parts? Hell yes. They're barely charging for an hour's work.

It's hard if you've never done it before. I was tought by a 20 year veteran "A" tech/good friend how to lace and true wheels. There is a LOT you need to know when lacing, peticulary how to perform final truing. This takes a precision dial indicator. Like anything, once you know all the tricks, it's a snap (and a big money saver)

Honestly, once you lace your own wheel you will see that its less complicated than techs will tell you. I don't use a dial indicator or a truing stand and I can get the wheel to turn true almost perfectly to the naked eye.

A dial indicator will make a better job of it, but it isn't absolutely necessary. A truing stand, or something that will duplicate its function, really should be used, however. One of the features of a good stand is that it has adjustable runout indicators that can be close in on the wheel as it gets truer, both laterally and vertically. These can detect very small discrepancies, and are usually all that is practically necessary, particularly for a dirt bike.

The key to building a strong wheel is adequate and uniform spoke tension.
