Another mistake bought a cracked front wheel

Recommended Posts

Don't know why I continue to buy stuff sight unseen on the statement its in really good shape. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. Anyway I bought a XR400 rim to finalize the swap of a XR400 front end onto my XR250. Well, it arrived today and the rim has a crack in the side where the bead attaches. Is this fairly common and is it a big deal. My first thought is just sell it and move on. Thanks

I'd say it depends on how hard it is to find wheels/rims and how long, how bad the crack is. I had a short crack in the bead of my front rim that I just ' stop drilled ' , then plugged with silicone and its been fine so far.

I have a spare front wheel. I think it is from a crf but it may fit. If you are interested, PM me and I will look at the sizing when I get home.

The CRF hub won't work but the rim should transfer over fine.

edit: Isn't the only difference on the 250 vs 400 front wheels the bearings, spacers and seals?
