Which rims will fit?

8 posts in this topic

Hello!

Looking for som offroad-wheels for my 650r. However, I don't know which will fit?

Does anyone know? Could I by ktm or yamaha wheels for example?

It would be nice if it didn't require too much modding..

21" front, 18" rear. excel makes a rim, pro series, that takes a universal carrier so they can fit most bikes. look on ebay and you'll get an idea of how expensive a complete wheel set can be.

I am guessing you mean WHEELS and not rims. Excel makes hubs, rims and spokes so you could have someone build you a set of wheels. You could also pick up a set of wheels off of E-Bay.

If you do mean RIMS then some of the 21" rims will fit from a KTM and also a Yamaha but KTM spoke nipples are larger so you will need larger spoke nipples to lace these up. I have used both stock 21" X 1.65" KTM Excels and stock Yamaha Excels with a stock XR650R front hub and Buchanan spokes. The rear rim is pretty much Honda specific and I don't know of any interchange.

If you are looking for the whole wheel assembly, only XR650R wheels will work on a XR650R. KTM and Yamaha rims will not work on a XR650R hub ether. The XR650R rear hub and rim is 32 holes and the others are 36 hole. You can buy Excel , Rad, Eagle and others to make it all work.

It is important to know what you have and want when getting a wheel setup.

I have gold Excels and red rad hubs and then went black excel and Rad hex hubs with the extra heavy duty rad spokes.

The Eagle rims are a real good choice also I have a Black front Eagle rim.

you will also need brake rotors front and back, a carrier ring, and a sprocket on the rear. these links are just from quick searches i did, not trying to endorse any vendor or brand. it might be better for you to buy a complete wheel off of ebay i've seen a good used wheel with tire go for $350-400. shipping to sweden is another matter. you may also buy wheels here on the Thumpertalk store or through the classifieds section.
