Cracked Wheel

Hey Everyone,

So I cracked my front wheel on my 650 going off road, and finding a replacement is a bit tricky/expensive. Does anyone know if you can replace wheels for KLRs with same dimension, say, Honda wheels? I've had 0 luck finding used KLR wheels anywhere. Thanks!

Do you mean wheel assembly or just the aluminum rim?

I don't know where you are located, but I've got a rim I'd sell you for a fair price. It's insane what you see those things go for on eBay. I'll take $40 for rim alone, or $70 for the whole wheel minus the brake disc plus whatever shipping would be.

If your close enough you can come pick it up, or I could ride it over to you.


How bad did you crack your rim?
