Rim upgrade for CRF250R

Recommended Posts

I would like to upgrade the rims on my bike. I've priced the excels pro series and looks like I would have SEVERAL yards to mow this summer. Anyone tried the D.I.D.'s or Talon's. If I go with the excel can I use my oem hubs with their rims and spokes since this would eliminate the carrier ring sets.

Thanks for any input.

Rim sets are pricy. I believe you can use their spokes on the OEM hub. I havent done this with my 250F, however, we have a CR80 and we used Excel reinforced spokes with the OEM hub.

I'm in the same boat---decided on excels --& biting the bullet for stainless spokes/nipples but these bikes put out lots of torque & constant attention to spokes is a must & regular spokes aren't holding up for me---

I beleive that if you go with the excels they use a bigger spoke and you simply have to dill your hub to accept the larger spoke. No biggie.

Just a post to say thanks for all the input. I plan on going ahead with the upgrade and now I have several options.

Thanks
