2000 Cr250 Front Wheel

Recommended Posts

So I have a cracked rim on the front wheel (2000 cr250) . I also have a good front wheel from an 86 xr250.


Can I just press out the bearings on the xr and replace with the ones that should fit my cr axle?


Or, can I just swap rims? The spokes fit in the hubs a bit different from xr to cr.


And bottom line is what are the best ways to fix cracked rims?

The whole rim swap thing sounds easy, but besides spoke by spoke removal, then install, then truing, then tire...its a task.

Bearings are different size. Either get a custom axle made. Probably the easiest. Just need a lathe and a foot of metal. Next choice would be to go to a bearing supplier and buy the applicable size you need. Keep them greased and/or buy extra for the future.

Then to figure out wheel spacers just cut your own. A pipe the Id of the axles od. Measure three times cut once.

Fix a cracked rimmmmmmm...

Ive seen one welded. But the welder knew his ish. 

Youre on the right track. Not a straight swap. Post results please
