Rear Wheel Replacement

Recommended Posts

Went out on my 2005 DRZ400SM for a nice evening ride around dusk and struck a huge pothole in a curve at about 45 mph:eek:. Literally lifted the rear wheel when it struck and bounced the rear around a bit.👍 Could not see it until too late due to cars, curve, and dusk. When I knew I was going to hit it I just straightened the bike up. Anyway, after thanking God that I had not high-sided I realized my tire was going flat. Stopped to find a bent rim and busted rear tire.

What are the options for replacement? Are there any wheels you recommend? Does anyone rebuild wheels if you send in the hub? The hubs, sprocket, and disc are good. Thanks for the help, and ride safe!🤣

lacing up a new rim is the cheapest option. there are motorcycle wheel shops all over the country.

i personally charge $85 plus the rim and possibly spokes if the spoke nipples are seized.

that is what most qualified wheel builder charge.
