Hello new to me crf450 08 need rear wheel

Recommended Posts

Hey, Just bought a 08 crf450 for 2300 Runs great . whada you think ? Seemed like a good price so i grabbed it. Needs tires for sure. Also a rear rim. The spokes were lose and the guys son rode it that way . Looks like the holes are worn .

Got any suggestions on how I should fix the rim?

looks like a good deal! try flea bay, you can pick the rims up pretty cheap. my guess is you will also need spokes as the old ones typically rust at the nipple and you end up having to cut them off.

I really hate to rain on your parade but no want ads, Ok?

If you need a rim only and want to lace it yourself there are quite a few cheap alternatives.

Ebay is a good one. ProWheels makes cheap rims. A better option is to lace up an Excel or a DID with good spokes and forget about it forever.

why don't you just hit all the spoke nipples with some wd40 and let soak overnight. Then tighten em.. why do you need a new rim?????? Tighten the dang things and RIDE IT! If they didn't pull through the rim, it is likely JUST FINE! :bonk:

I will check . The holes looked worn out.

take a photo and post it, they are likely just fine. The bike looks like it doesn't have a lot of hours.

I would tightening the spokes and see what happens before assuming that the rim is bad.
