Bent rim

6 posts in this topic

Had too much fun on the WR this morning, bent the front rim good. :) Where’s the best place to get a new one?

i just bought an excel rim and they have changed the holes, so i had to buy an excel spoke kit. excel is now in the spoke business. i brought the hub and rim to buchanan 's,(626)969-4655. they stock blank excel rims and can drill them to fit any model. i wish i had known this before i ordered the rim and spoke kit. the excel spoke kits have the aluminum splined nipples. i have heard that these can crack. anyways they set me up with the right spokes and nipples to build a wheel that looks like the stock one. any one want to buy a set of 18" spokes and nipples for a yz/yzf?

See if you can get it fixed first. I just had my street bike rim re-straightened from .300 back to .015. And it was a mag wheel. The place I took it did spoke wheels also which he said is much easier.

Try Woody's Wheel Works in Littleton Colorado. They can do wonders with wheels. I don't have the number but if you can't find it off the net, I'll look it up for you.
