Anyone know which if any 17" rims are an easy fit on an XR650R?

Like F2, F3, SV650, GS500, Hawk?

I wanna motard my XR on the cheap.

I definetly want a 160/60 on the rear.


Thanks

Traded my SV for it yesterday. WOO WOO

2nd gear wheelies 1/2 throttle no clutch. Cripes.

Congrats on the bike. I don't know a budget method of getting wheels on I am afraid. I went for Talon hubs/Stainless spokes and Morad polished rims. It is about the most cost effective way when buying new.

Check which tyre fits as you may struggle with a 160 section rear. I have a Dunlop 150 on mine and there is not much clearance between the swinging arm and chain. Some are wider than others believe it or not.

Looks like new? if it is check your valve clearances, mine were way out from the factory.

It's used with very low hours. It's been uncorked and wheelies off the throttle

in third. I think (hope) my valves are OK. And it starts 2nd kick when cold

and first kick warm.

Wheels: I just won this on Ebay, first auction ever.

Now I just need a front. It's a 94 cbr600f2 rim. Anybody ever fitted, or know anyone

who's fitted one of these on an XR650R? It's 5" wide. Think a 150 will fit

or be too stretched out?

Thanks

I saw a 650R at Daytona this year with silver SV650 wheels - they looked and lined up pretty good...

I'm not sure how much effort went into the fitment - usually it's just a case of fabricating spacers and replacing bearings.

BTW, a 150 on a 5" is too stretched and ruins the profile.

Tried to find the guy on this forum who has done this sort of thing. I think he had F2 or F3 wheels on an XR650R. I can't seem to track the string down though. Here is his e-mail though...Scott and Lynn [scott@bonnett.net] He had to make a custom cush drive to get the sprocket lined up... Stock sport bike wheels are designed for a wider engine and swingarm, so the rear sprocket is too far out for an XR...

Thanks, someone just gave me his link a couple days ago.


http://www.scott-world.com/XR650R/index.htm real good information.

A whole new sprocket carrier did not have to be made, but boths sides

of the wheel, and the cush drive had to be machined. Ouch. I'll let

everyone know how it turns out. I might also be looking for a complete

CBR F3 front end. Man this gets spensive quick.
