Talon Hub parts/service in Calif/West Coast?

4 posts in this topic

Im trying to fit a new set of Excel wheels w/Talon hubs on my newly converted USD fork XR600. The rear wheel is for the XR and is fine, and the frt hub is for 2000-ish CR w/20mm axle, I need to get bearing/spacer set (assuming there is one) for 90 CR500 17mm axle size. East Coast wheels may have what I need, but they are on the East coast. I was looking for a Talon dealer in Calif/West Coast. Anybody have a clue where to go? Google wasnt my friend here. Thx

When I did the sport bike front wheel conversion on my XRL I wound up making the spacers to reduce the bearing ID to 17mm, I used a piece of stainless steel to make it.

I couldn't find a bearing with a 42 mm OD & a 17mm ID

I was given this info by Talon support in the UK:

Please note you can purchase the above rear hub from QTM who are our US

importer. I am sure they will be able to assist you with your

requirements.

Thanks much for that info, Im going to call them Monday. Most sites that carry Talon hubs have this statement on thier site:

"CHANGING TO A NEWER BIKE? Talon hubs have changable internal components which may allow you to keep you hub and just replace the bearings and spacers"

So....Im hoping I can get the 17mm internals?

Thanks again for posting that info
