front and rear wheel ID please help . tons of pics !

hey guys . i was told these would maybe fit my honda dual sport bike , but didnt dust off the hub castings till i got home to see they are kawasaki hubs ! :ride:

anyways , heres what i can tell you :

- the front rim is 21" with a 17mm bearing inner diameter . it has no provisions for a tripmeter.

- the rear rim is 18" also with a 17mm inner bearing diameter . they came with no wheel spacers or collars.

from what i found out on the net with the casting numbers F-1212 and R-1213 , they might be for a kx250 or kx500, but a site said the rear should be 20mm axle for that casting , but these are both 17mm :thumbsup: . let me know what you think . i need to sell them too. thanks guys ! ! !



21" front wheel


21" front rotor side


21" front non rotor side (notice theres no accommodations for tripmeter)


front casting F-1212



rear sprocket side hub


rear rotor side


rear casting R-1213


I am not saying the front is the following, just that it hassimilarities to, a 1989 - 1991 style KX125 / 250 / 500 wheel.

On the back, I do not know of any KX or KDX with a 17mm ID bearing. My 1987 KDX200 has 20mm and a drum brake. Mid to late '80's KX is 20mm, also.

Maybe they are from a KLR dual-sport??

Look on the side of the rims and post all the info you find. Some rims have a year code on them.

Someone obviously changed the rear wheel bearings.

R-1213 - 20MM AXLE OD - BRG TO BRG 135MM - ROTOR OD IS 220MM - ROTOR BOLT CIRCLE 6 ON 116MM – 36 SPOKES – FITS 89 KDX200, KX125, KX250, KX500

R-1213 - 20MM AXLE OD - BRG TO BRG 130MM - ROTOR OD 220MM – 36 SPOKES - FITS 90-94 KDX200, 90-96 KX125 KX250 KX500

F-1212 - 17MM AXLE DIA - BRG TO BRG 92MM - ROTOR BC 4 ON 116MM - FITS 90-92 KX125 AND 250 - 1990-1993 KX500

DUDE! Where did you get that info?

oem-cycle, don't forget the hyphen. He's the expensive guy from ebay, but has a decent database going.

Google, nevermind. Thanks for posting it.

The inner race looks VERY thick on that rear hub.

I had to post that way because TT puts "XXX-XXXXXX" in the url for that site.

Good case info too, that's what I use for people here.

ok . got more info for you guys ... heres two more pics of info i found on the rim . maybe suggests 07-1988 on the end? if it helps theres dual sport tires on it and he added makeshift wheel weights, so i would think it would be a 250+ cc bike for the road .. then again , people plate everything nowadays . as state in OP , the net states the rear should be a 20mm f-1213 , i was thinking the same thing about the bearings in the back being swapped out .

well once i find out for SURE what they are from, i will probably pop the original bearings in the rear (20mm) and sell them outright. dont see why anyone would want 17mm on the rear. maybe thats why he thought they would fit my honda xr600 with a 17mm axle?





well once i find out for SURE what they are from,

I posted what they are.

alrighty then .

so ,

the FRONT FITS 90-92 KX125 AND 250 - 1990-1993 KX500

and i dont have to change the bearings since its already 17mm OEM

and the REAR FITS 89 KDX200, KX125, KX250, KX500 AND FITS 90-94 KDX200, 90-96 KX125 KX250 KX500 .

and the rear i would order a new bearing kit to make it 20mm OEM .

thats about all she wrote eh ?

Yup. Someone fit smaller bearings in there for God knows what.

thanks , think i could sell em here or should i try the BaY?

also, i just ordered some kx250 86-96 bearings for the rear .. they should be fine .

noticed some kx500 wheels are 19" ... mine is a 18" , guess they made different sizes ?

Edited by woodbutcher80

That could have been from a bike with an 18" rim or 19" rim. IMO, someone would want it more being an 18" for offroad use. More tire selection, trials tire, etc.

Try here and Ebay.

Will a read hub for a 90' kdx200 fit the rear for an 86' kx250

What are bearing size difference for an 90' kdx200 rear hub to an 86'kx250 rear hub

WTF is that on the front wheel screwed into the rotor?

      Hi all,
      I have a 2004 Kawasaki kx250 that died suddenly on me the other day. all i can get it to do is backfire every once in awhile. Tested the resistance and everything of the magneto and stator with a multi-meter and all is good.  Coil is new oem Kawasaki the reeds are brand new vforce and the top end and carb have been completely rebuilt.  key on crank is intact and all the timing marks are lined up. I hooked a timing light to it and spun the motor over really fast and found that it is sparking way to late.  The service manual says that it is supposed to fire 14 degrees before TDC but it is sparking way after TDC.  Im thinking its a fried CDI box since its the only thing i wasnt able to check.  Any help would be appreciated

      Hi all,
      I have a 2004 kx 250 2 stroke and it wont start.  it only backfires.  I was out riding it one day and came up to a stop so the bike was just idling and it started to try and die so i revved it up a few times then let it die and now it wont start back up.  It only pops or backfires when you kick it.  Its getting good spark and i just put a brand new plug and coil in it. I took the reeds apart and they look like they're brand new.  It was running great before so i dont know what happened.  Im thinking it could be a fuel problem even tho the plug is a little wet if you take it out after a bunch of kicking.  Any help would be greatly appreciated

      Alright, found three bikes all located where i live in Texas. I know they're all very different, but if you could tell me what you think each bike is worth, and which one would be the best deal. Thanks.
      Notes: Both 2 strokes have new top ends. I think the front brake lever is broken on the kawasaki.
      KX250 2002 $800-$1000?

      So I'm at a bit of a cross roads, I currently own a 06 rm250 and I love it. I also have a 02 kx250 which I'm selling with intent to buy a newer two stroke. I can't afford a newer ktm and the older ones aren't that great and kawasaki never impressed me. so I'm stuck between 06 yz250 and 05 cr250. I've heard the yz and rm after 06 are almost the same bike just the Suzuki handles better and the Yamaha has better suspension. So I'm not sure if I wanna buy carbon copy of my bike with slight differences. That's why I'm interested in a cr250 I heard the 02+ models RC valves are shit garbage but was mostly fixed in the 05-07 models. I ride at a track and at some bogs down the road from me. So from people who have owned both, what would you recommend. I know the cr is known for a hard hitting power band which I enjoy since im an aggressive rider. Should i just see which deal comes my way first.
