KLX250S stock rim question

Recommended Posts

Are there any stock rims from other bikes in the 18 and 21 inch size that will fit right on a 2009 KLX250s? I'm looking for no changes at all, brakes and sprocket all the same sizes and spacing. Maybe change sprocket size but other than that pull the axle and change the wheel.

2009 models do not look too much different to the earlier models.

I bought a set of KDX200 wheels for my 05 KLX and they slot straight in.

I keep one set ready with dual purpose tyres and another set of wheels with knobbies.

I believe the klx300r has the same front and rear rims. I checked www.bikebandit.com and the rear hub for my 250s was the same as the 300r hub. I'm guessing you want a set of rims with street tires and one set with full blown knobs.

You would be correct. Streets and knobs. Ran full streets at the end of the summer last year. Got great mileage and had a lot of fun. Street tires will probably last forever on that bike.

Rims from KLR and previous models KLXs and also KLX 300 will be the same. The only difference might be the spokes sizes..and the hubs.

      I have a "new" KLX 140 for sale 
      I say new because it has less than 2 hours on it. 
      I bought this bike new in Brandon for my wife, she is not interested. 
      This bike is the small wheel version, low seat height, electric start. 
      Great beginner bike !

      Hello friends, 
      I have seen some discussion about DRZ400 (DRZ400S, etc) vs whatever other bike, when it comes to power. My riding buddy and I threw down some good old drag races this morning on the way back home after some adventure in the forest. I own/ride a 2002 KLX300R. We ran two heats, one on gravel, then one one asphalt. Who do you think won? See below:

      Hello friends, 
      I recently put a new Kenda Trakmaster II rear tire on my KLX300R. I'm loving the improved grip and overall performance. Here's a little video I put together of the tire in action...

      Hello friends, 
      Just thought I'd share a short summary video of a 154-mile adventure ride my buddy and I did last week. Northeastern AZ has an unbelievable amount of rural trail/road to explore. My KLX300R averaged 71.5 MPG on this ride.
