Bust. They're sold out! And I'm not sure if having them shipped to the States is going to break the bank!

I wish buying aftermarket wheels for motorcycles were as easy as buying wheels for a car.

it's not as easy as cars for sure...but it can be done. I bought wheels for my project and had a guy help me with the fitment and alignment because like many projects on this forum, these wheels weren't meant to fit up to the SR. It's still work in process but I am going to like it!

Older SR wheels come available time to time but you just have to be patient if you want the mags. Figure out what you want and save your cash. Depending what part of California you live, there are wheels guys that can help you.

I sent an Email to Yamaha Aus and they ordered a set of the wheels in for me (the ones linked above), I imagine you could do the same with Yamaha USA. Took about a month? for them to get from Japan to Aus, then a weekend to get to me. You can order them from Webike Japan as well, bit more expensive though.

Wheels come with bearings and seals installed. There's a spacer to use the 2014/2015 front disc with these "old" style wheels. Rear comes with cush drive plate, cush drive rubbers, 52? tooth rear sprocket. Spacers, nuts and bolts also included.

Front is about the same weight as the old 19" mag, the rear is a ton lighter than the old 78/79 mag though. I need to get some spacers made to run the rear in my Motolanna swing arm, no combination of the Motolanna and Yamaha spacers fit correctly.

& I gave away 3 sets of the mags with drum rear :P (few years back though)
I should have hung onto them & sold them for $500 a set + freight
Oh well I'm sure they went to good homes 8-)
Cheers Dave

I was surprised to see the cast rear drum wheel on Ebay about 3weeks ago received no bids on a $200 starting price. Unless I missed something, it seemed reasonable to me. It was posted on the forum.

So another question to those in the know, it seems that the 19" front wheels from later XS650's fit straight onto SR500's and 400's, but does this imply that the bikes use the same front hub?

The reason I'm asking is that it will save me a fair bit in spoke-making and rim-drilling charges by my local wheel-builder, if I can buy a rim and spoke set from mikesxs and just hand the the lot over to the builder.

I want to keep hold of them for a while. Check this thread for info about the SX650 wheel, should be in there somewhere.
