  1. I just bought a 2008 WR250FX a while back and am getting it street legalized soon. I would really like to paint my rims either black (to go with my blue spoke covers) or blue. I would like to do this at home as I do not have enough money for aftermarket rims. I have looked into powdercoating, anodizing, and dual/single stage automotive paint so far. (Powdercoating looks like it might chip during tire change and there is not a local spot for anodizing and it looks expensive) Does anyone have any suggested methods or ideas for painting them at home? Do not tell me spray paint! Also please do not talk me out of it because I'm hard set on NOT buying new rims! Also we have a very capable, controlled, and large work space so any challenges shouldn't be an issue. Give me your thoughts please! Kind of stuck!
  2. Washing my bike after a quick ride and just noticed my rear wheel has huge scratches down it What the hell has done this?! How the f do I fix it, respray? Its only 6 months old. 👎 Thanks guys

  4. Hi all, im looking to make my 2018 WR450F a motard. There are a set of motard rims/Tyres for sale coming off an 03 WR450F. It looks like they are the Honda CBR rims that have been adapted to the 03 WRF. If if I buy the rims including the brackets/rear axle etc will it all match up on the 18? I can’t find information to see if there will be problems... What issues may may there be between years?
  5. Beta wheel sources and choices???? Im wondering about possibly getting wheels for my bike . Im just wondering what the sources would be and the prices etc. A thread with just wheel choices in one place might be good. Ive been looking at this set on holcombes bike as pretty nice but any and all wheel sets for supermoto to mx to enduro or anything seems good to list here. It’s just so we all can see what would work for personal use. Here’s the set on holcombes bike at the beginning. some initial source links.. https://www.google.com/search?client=safari&hl=en-us&biw=414&bih=617&tbm=isch&sa=1&ei=NM4uW4fvD4re0gK4mb7ADA&q=beta+rr+aftermarket+wheels+for+sale&oq=beta+rr+aftermarket+wheels+for+sale&gs_l=mobile-gws-wiz-img.3...19474.40027..40807...0....252.4955.0j30j5......0....1.........35i39j30i10j0i8i13i30j0i8i30j0i24.KfV25bRHpS0%3D Got some Beta wheel sources?

  9. Hello everybody. So here is the thing, i just bought a beta 450 2014 but i want to change it to SM. The problem is that i don't have much money and i only want to buy the rims cut my spokes and thats it. The question is, what rims in the market will fit, how to know about the angle spokes? please help
  10. I'm hoping to swap the front rim on my 03 XR650L for a 19" and found an excel with the same spoke count (32) at 19 x 1.85. Would I be able to use the rest of the stock components swapping the 21 x 1.6 for a 19 x 1.85 (both 32 spoke)? Thanks,
  11. So I'm kind of at a loss. A little background I picked up a non running 87 xr600r project for about $400 that was pretty beat up and came to life with a cheap new stator. My plan was to tear it down replace a few bearings fix a head gasket leak and probably sleeve it and add a new piston since I'd be in the top end. Sand & paint the frame and engine, call it a day and have a cheap trail bike. Since I've had it running I havent been able to to ride it. The tires were junk and the front sprocket was on backwards making the chain rub half irs rivets off on the frame. I bought a new chain, sprocket, tires and tubes for about $200 bucks off fleabay.. I'm cheap but one think I hate is fighting with tire spoons so I drop the wheels and tires down to my local bike shop hoping to putt around this weekend being so nice out. Unfortunately they were out sick so I stopped by the Indian triumph polaris dealer next door who says they got me and will give me a call. Buzzkill. They call me a couple hours later and let me know the front rim had some rust issues but they got the tire on. Then they tell me the rear rim is rusted and trashed on the inside. They said they'd try to track down a rim or replacement but didnt have any luck. I did some hunting on fleabay and found some wheels for $200-400 w shipping for a rear which could be just as ratted out. They sell some cheap Chinese rims for about $235 f+r shipped but I'd also have to buy spokes which would add another $100-200 And labor to install them could be another $100 or more. Also being a dealership I'm already charged $100 for the tire change so they get there minimum shop hour and spent $110 on eBay for the tires & tubes... Adding all that up is be at least $6-700 bucks in wheels in tires alone. I haven't even ridden it to uncover any other problems and already think it at least needs a top end.. I'm About $800 in the bike right now and was hoping to keep it all around $1500 or at least less 2k. I was thinking most of that would be in the top end rebuild. Above $2k is probably more then the bike rebuilt is worth. I'm hoping I can find a used rear pretty cheap If anyone on here has one that's not rusted out? Or knows of anything else that will fit on it? I reall love these xr's but if I can't come up with anything im thinking of putting it up for sale or parting it out since I could through the front end on my 85 xl600r scramber I built.. Anybody have any thoughts or ideas? Pics for good measure. Thanks
  12. Quick questions for the gurus. Would a 19" rim off a 1999 yz250 fit my 1989 yz250wr? I currently have a 18" rim on it, but I know the WR from 1989 came with a 19" from the factory but would one that new fit my old ass bike? Also how much would I have to change to make a gas tank from the 1999 fit my 1989 Thanks
  13. I'm looking to buy a set of new aftermarket rims for my 150RB and would like some recommendations. I'm looking for a black set that could lace up with the stock spokes and hub but I'm not sure who makes them.
  14. Has anyone put a 10 inch z50 rim on the back of a Crf70? I know people put the 8inch z50 rear tires on the 50’s so wondering if a 10 inch z50 rim would fit on a 70
  15. Got a really good offer to buy a pair of Yamaha yzf450 2007 rims but both me and the seller is unsure if it will fit on my kx450f-2010 , front rim will most likely fit . but the rear? do anyone here know if the rear rim will fit mine? 21-19" wheels
  16. I am planning on painting my excel rims on my 02 RM 125 black and would like to know the best place to purchase "Takasago Excel Rims" stickers to put over them after I have painted them. If anybody has any ideas please let me know.
  17. Hey guys, noob here. i need help. I had this bright Idea to chop my chinese scooter and install a set of forks+triple tree from Amazon onto the front end. The triple tree install went fairly easy. I have the triple tree mounted. Lets leave it at that. Lol so here is my dilemma. the wheel i had on my scooter was a 13” wheel with the speedometer gyro and spacer making it about 6.25” of axle width between the forks. the new set of forks have a 4.75” fork to fork width for the axle. 15mm axle hole on forks. I originally wanted to put on a max 16” wheel with a street tire. Tire maybe about 100/60-16 I am learning that typical sizes are either 14” or 17” so im opting to go with a 17” wheel/rim. my issue is how do I find out which wheel will work and how to measure for the right spacers? Which will get my disk brake lined up with the calipers? this is the forks: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B07926FZZZ?psc=1&ref=ppx_pop_mob_b_asin_image Originally the caliper was mounted on right side of bike. These forks have a left mounted caliper. Can i flip the caliper mounting plate? My original caliper bolt holes line up. i learned that the forks call for a 210mm disk brake rotor. why am i having such a hard time finding a 17” wheel with a 210mm disk rotor and finding the spacers to work with this fork? Any and all help will be greatly appreciated!
  18. I've a DRZ 400 SM (2015). What type of off road wheels are compatible? I've heard that some KTM and some RM wheels work. IS it hard to find dirt wheels for these bikes? I'm in atlantic Canada and options are limited. Thank you!
  19. Hey just wondering about some of the ebay sumo wheels out there. I just bought a FE350 and need some wheels to practice on track and to do me on the road as I'm getting ready to join Norasport Supermoto Championship next year. I currently rent a CRF450 with SM Pros on the track and my mechanic is trying to sell me on SM Pros but I just don't have the money for them and probably won't until winter. I've been looking at some of the ebay kits that go for like 450-500 quid which is way more doable for me than 800-900quid from the big brands like SM, Alpina, Warp etc. Only problem is, and this is my question, would the KTM kits fit my Husky? I know that they share a lot of parts/similarities but there's no specific listings for Husqvarna compatibility. If anyone here would just recommend saving up for the big brands then I will. Just generally looking for advice at this point. As a side question, if anybody has any tips/advice for converting to sumo I'd much appriciate it. I'm trying to do as much research as I can but there's always room for more knowledge. Thank you!
  20. I haven't owned a bike in years and decided to pick up an 09' YZ450F. One of the first things it needed was a new set of rims so I bought some spokes to go with it and this is my first pass. Do my rims look like they're laced properly? Looking forward to getting back into it and being active on Thumper.. Cheers!
  21. I was wondering what the diffrents between a 18” rear rim vs 19” rear rim beside the sizes . Im looking at getting a rear rim off a 2010 yz250f and I have a 2005 yz250f. The 2010 haves a 18” rear rim . My bike has a 19” rear rim so I was wondering if that 18” is going to work on my bike . I know it’s a tenderfoot question but I’m new to dirtbikes
