Xr650l Motard Wheels?

Recommended Posts

Im Keen To Convert My 2005 Xr650l To Motard Configuration, But Would Like To Do So On A Budget (buy Second Hand If Possible). I Live In Australia, And To Date Have Not Seen Another Example Of A Completed Xr650l Motard Here. What Other Honda Models Have The Same Hub As The Xr650l? I Have Seen Quite A Few Crf450 Wheel Sets For Sale, And The Odd Xr650r Wheel Sets, Will Any Of These Fit Straight Onto My Bike? Any Body Have A Set For Sale? Or Does Any Body Have A Set Of Standard Xr650l Hubs As Another Option?

I converted my '97 XR-L to motard configuration last year. Based on the research I did before the conversion, I'd don't believe that any hubs other than stock will work without significant modification. I ended up sending my stock hubs to Buchanan Spoke & Rim for lace-up to 17" rims. Took about four weeks and they did an excellent job. Might be more complicated from Australia but you can likely find a local provider to do the same thing. Like you, I would like to pick up a set of front and rear hubs to re-fit to the wheels so I can switch out between motard and dual sport configuration. Good luck!

You can buy rims and spokes and lace your own. That would keep the shipping time and costs down.
