what rims for my xr650r supper moto

Recommended Posts

I went the cheap route and got a used NX250 19" front wheel off Ebay. Bolted right on with larger bearings. Then I mounted some Shinko 705 tires on it and the stock rear. Not quite SM, but close and much cheaper. I also have the EBC 280mm rotor kit.

I bought these used for less than $600 off craigs list. look around and you may find some good deals if your patient. I saw a couple good deals out there when i was looking.

the guy i bought them from had $1200 into them he said.

stock xr650r hubs

excel rims

buchanan spokes

front is a 17"

rear is a 18" (wish it was a 17" for more tire selection but wont complain on the price)

i picked up a 320mm front rotor and adaptor for about $200 but have yet to try it out (been riding more dirt lately)

+1 for eBay. I bought a brand new set of Excel Rims laced to Excel Pro-Series Hubs that were only used as a store display for $675. They were complete with Shrinko Slicks, new 45T sprocket, wave rear rotor,and 320mm Braking front rotor. I actually wanted street tires, but for this price I think I'll just buy a tire groove cutter and run them until they wear out. For my other bike, I am going to buy a set of cast wheels to convert. This can be done for a few hundred, but it's more of a hassle.
