Rim Welding?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone ever had any welding done to sport bike rims? Im looking at getting the cush drive welded to the rim Of some cbr 600f2 rims. I was wondering how the tig welds would hold up.

Yes having the cush drive welded to the rim, i had to machine down the cush drive to fit the overall swingarm width & had to remove the outer cush drive bearing so theres no way for the cush drive hub to maintain contact. so i was thinking on welding it to the rim.

Welding to the hub parts should not be a problem. You will have to deal with the machining, fit-up, alignment, joint design, weld distortion and maybe some post weld machining.
